I live and hunt in Western New York, we have a huge turkey population where I am, but our season begins May 1st for birds, I do spend much time scouting, filming, and shed hunting though.
Heck yeah WNY is the bomb!!! Turkeys galore and I love it here!!! Most books that I have read say that the Eastern Turkey is the hardest species to hunt. I do fairly well against the Easterns.
