I am doing something i thought i would never do but here you go. Have hunted Scotch in SW bama three times and we have always killed some turkeys and have had good hunts. Also in my thoughts the more ground to cover is better so the last couple of years been to the Talladaga Ntl forest. Not as many turkeys but more of what i like to hunt with the terrain. BUT PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE leave your four wheeler at home when turkey hunting anywhere!!!!!

I have done some online research and looked at the WMAs on google arth and the northern Tier counties are pretty steep terrain.

the reason i even said ATV is because in My county in IN they are NOT allowed on WMAs but are allowed if registered on County and Forest ROADS....

I just wanted a Means of me and My buddy to be able to separate. Without having to Drop each other off and so on. Not to Ride up to the birds. I Know better than to ruin somebody else hunts. I have Courtesy to park on the road if allowed and Walk in.

Coosa

I have hunted Coosa WMA near Birmingham the last 2 seasons along with 3 of my buddies that are all experienced turkey hunters: heard and got on a few turkeys, hunting pressure was pretty high, terrain was rough, roads were very rough (4 wheel drives are a must), no birds killed, did not have a good quality hunt, probably won't return.

Disclaimer: We always went for the March 15 opener. Hunting probably would have been better if we would have waited a week or 2.
