    Hey all,
    It's been a long time. Glad to see this still going strong.
    Anyway, I got permission to hunt some private land just south of Greenville Mo. and was kind of wondering about the turkey population in the area. My youngest son and I are going down in the morning to do some scouting (no calling). And to meet some landowners. Any hints are appreciated.

    One more thing,
    I got a gripe,
    I went to Magnolia Hollow C/A this morning to do some scouting. They have a clay bird shooting range there. It took me about an hour to clean up about a case of spent shells and White Castle trash and other stuff that someone left. Now, this C/A has nature trails that walkers and hikers take. If any of these guys saw this I can imagine what they thought of us hunters/target shooters. The place was a mess! We have to take care of these places and pick up after ourselves. The antis would have a field day on things like this. On a good note though, they must not have been very good shooters because I also found about 30 clay birds that were in perfect shape!

    Thanks for letting me vent a bit,

    Have a Goodun'

    It's good to be back.
    Greenville is a little south of Wappapello Lake.

    Greenville is wayyyyyyyyyyyy down 67 south, almost to Wappapello. (About 20 miles north of the lake).

    There's plenty of turkeys in that area, so you shouldn't have any trouble finding a good spot to hunt them 270.

    I went to Magnolia Hollow one time, when it was only accessable by water. We were in a 14' narrow Jon boat, and the trip up (and back down) the Mississippi was quite an adventure. Those barges look even bigger when you're trying to get out of the way. :eek:

    :confused: You go through Greenville on the way to Wappapello when you're heading south. You can either take a left on D, which will take you across the dam, or you can go left 172, right on W, left on KK, and left on T to get to the dam. (Or left on RA to the launch/bathrooms/swimming area).

    Hey GoGop,
    Your right, you do pass Greenville before Wapappello. I go over the headwaters (St. Francis river) of the lake before I get to the place. It kind of threw me off.
    I know what you mean about being on the Mississippi on a 14' jon boat. Been there, done that, got the t-shirt. Only thing is, we did it when the river was up! :bangin: I'll never do that again.


    Thanks for everything,

    Pipe, you know what the locals are like down there, hunting season is "all year" as far as many are concerned. :bangin: Got alot of relatives in Piedmont and you wouldn't believe the stories I hear. Sister in law used to work at the county seat there in Greenville.

    They have a pretty nice pay lake that you can get some good catfish at down there also. Took my father in law there shortly before he died, he had a blast.

    As far as Turks are concerned, it's alot better down there now than it was say even 5 years ago, at least that the report that I have been getting. Alot of area to hunt down there, don't get lost. If your new to the area it wouldn't be a bad idea to have a GPS.

    We all got sick from eating at the Continental, but the Longhorn buffet was always good.
