This is my first year turkey hunting public land and I’m curious about the etiquette people “should” use when they are hunting public, like parking at the gate etc..

Mainly just use common sense and treat others how you would want to be treated.

Hunt weekdays and let the weekend crowd have at it.

If someone is at a gate I go on. If someone is working a bird I go on. Well, unless it sounds horrible and they have no hope of killing him. Then I might play from a distance. 😁

If you go in expecting other to abide by your etiquette then you’ll be sorely disappointed
Public land is fair chase with no ground rules when I comes to respecting other hunters especially during turkey season

there is no such thing in real life on public land turkey hunting.


I've spent most of the money I've made in my lifetime on hunting and fishing. The rest I just wasted.....

Yes. Well said. I normally bring a box of clays and shoot skeet when I see a truck parked at my honey hole.

Just be prepared to bite your lip and go to another spot at times. I have several, and I mean several spots. Plan for plan A,B,C, and so forth. It really is not worth a turkey for somebody to get shot or shot at. I have had times where people cut me off. It happens, generally, you can avoid situations like that. As in, don't hunt public land.

But as stated, The Golden Rule. If someone beats you to a spot, get there earlier the next day or come back later after they leave. Many management areas in Alabama close at 1:00. Some of the best hunting on public ground can be from 10:00am-1:00pm. Florida finally allowed hunting all day on some public land. I know there are pros and cons to this, but it allows me to get some hunting in later in the day either after work or during bad weather days. What I have found through the years hunting public land is most folks won't hang with them. They get frustrated and leave too early or hunt the first two weeks of the season and slack off(which I am selfishly thankful for). Outlaws are going to be outlaws no matter what law is passed.

I try to get a lot of scouting in from year-to-year. Get your boots on the ground and put your time in, use the golden rule, and be patient.

COVID changed that last season ... but in a NORMAL year, what Matt said ... far less competition during the weekdays - everywhere

beat me to it.

"Turkey hunting public land" and "etiquette" are never used in the same sentence unless the phrase "lack thereof" is in there somewhere. At least that's been my experience.

. You did ask for proper etiquette, and these two have it correct. The problem is the type of people you may experience, they may not have the same "common sense" or "courtesy" as you. Hunt during the week if you can, you may find it is easier to find a place without someone bumping you.
