turkey crap and turkey scratchings is what I look for. Some pros might give you other hints. I am a rookie in the turkey hunting world.

i agree with buckfever... the ground will be all tore up in a pretty big area.. look for crap, feathers, tracks etc.. thats all i know of.

Yup,what they said. Tom turkeys have a "J" shaped crap with a more solid appearance than hens (softer/mushy). Quit laughing, I'm serious LOL

i like to look for TURKEYS:tongue:seriously look for the birds.this time of year they will be in huge flocks for safety.When they feed they scratch the ground so it will be all tore up you'll know it when you see it they make a big mess.the droppings are in a j and the tip will be white like a cigg butt.they eat acorns this time of year .they like bugs worms and nuts.they like to roost in tall trees at night at the base of these trees you will find feathers and droppings.if you find roost trees you hit the jackpot and dont spook em out of there.they will fly down from the roost as soon as they can see predators walking around..the spring woods is an awesome time to be a turkey hunter as you will hear the males gobbling like crazy trying to locate hens.I love turkey hunting almost as much as deer hunting sometimes more.It aint so darn cold most of the time:yes:

I look for all types of sign but especially the birds themselves if I see the turkeys I know that I am in the right place.
