    Austin, 150 acres is not that big, so you can scout it out in a relatively expedient manner.
    Take Charlie Elk's calling techniques and get busy. Good scouting is the key to success. It takes a little leg-work, but I have always liked my scouting ventures.
    Where I am from, there are a few places to key in on. I concentrate on streams with good roosting trees around them. I would also take note of turkey sign and do a little tracking. You can find fresh track and see where they are heading around sundown.
    Charlie Elk has given you some really good tips. Now it is just a matter of putting them into action.

      I 'll agree with my fellow hunters 150 acres is a small area to hunt turkey.You are going to find the tallest trees around,Roost,look for a large amount of droppings around the base of the trees.Get out early and get to the deepest part of the wood and listen for them to fly up to the limb.Don't worry you will know it when you hear it.If they are not right over your head use your locator call and see if there is a gobbler in the bunch.Remember no lights just use the moon.When he gobbles he will make you kringe up.
      Good Luck on locating your bird.Talk to some neighbors and see if you can work out a deal for more land to hunt.

        Just do pre-season scouting and use a locater call to get a turkey to gobble. I usually use a utv but i have more than 150 acres.
