The turkey hunting on a Wyoming ranch is excellent. The turkey population is very high, there are a lot of gobblers, and Eastern turkey hunters see a huge amount of jakes. Though it can’t be guaranteed, most guides in Wyoming do expect a 100% harvest success, partially because of the land being well managed in the past. Try the lodges up in the Black Hills forest-type country with a lot of timbered canyons to hunt.
