Hey guys, I've only been in MT for about a month and after 6 years in Alaska I'm ready to chase some turkeys again.
I'm looking for for a little advice as to where I could start looking for some. Not looking for anyones secret spot but
more of a general area where they live in decent numbers.

Also, I've never hunted Merriams only Easterns back in WI, any differences between the sub-species besides the obvious color difference in the fan?

It should be an interesting year all over the northern US with the lack of winter this year, my brother who lives back in WI says he's already seen a bird in full strut gobbling his head off and that was two weeks ago.

Thanks for all of your help, glad to be a part of this forum.
