Joel's advice is good. Another thing you could do, and start soon, is knock on doors and bring your kids along and ask permission. Landowners are pretty likely to let kids hunt when they may not let an adult do so. Just explain what you are trying to do with your kids and always be respectful even if they say no. The worse thing that can happen is they say no. The Jakes program , part of the National Wild Turkey Federation, could be a source for all kinds of help. Good luck
another thing. with kids and new hunters around here I always suggest they start the kids with turkey hunting. Why? the weather tends to be better. turkeys are interactive, they talk back. and it can be a little more forgiving if a mistake is made. you don't have to think about the wind and scent. Just a thought.
