Potential 2019 hotspots: The island of Hawaii features the state’s best public-land turkey hunting, though you can also find birds on public land on Lanai and Molokai, according to Shaya Honarvar, game program coordinator for the Hawaii Department of Land and Natural Resources.

Quick tip: “Hunt during the week to avoid the weekend warriors,” says Jon Sabati, a longtime National Wild Turkey Federation volunteer. “Leave your crow and coyote calls home. Turkeys may shock gobble to it, but it is not a natural sound here and may cause the turkeys to go the other way.”
