PUBLIC, black hills is made up of 100 miles north to south by 50 miles east to west of public land, ya there alot to cover....
early in the season hunt around Custer S.D. spring gets there early, tons of birds, lots of forest roads out of there...later in year Spearfish, Sturgis areas are good to work.

Black Hills of Wyoming also holds a lot of birds. I am from Spearfish, and have lived here for 24 years and have never hunted turkeys in the Black Hills, i'm a private land, prairie guy, but there are turkeys everywhere in the hills. Just put your time in, and you'll get one. The southern hills does have a lot of birds, and i've always heard around Custer is good.

Go public, plenty of land. We did well just south of Spearfish and also got into birds on the southwest corner of the hills. We got lucky the year we went . The weather was cool the opening week and it rained off and on all week. Snowed one day while hunting in Wyoming ,a couple inches. The year after we went , they got 18" of snow opening week! If I go again, it will be a little later in the season.
