San Diego public land turkey is a real challenge. Look for oak and pine areas with some clearings mixed in.

The closest city would be Ramona...The closest communities would be Santa Ysabel, Julian, and Warner Springs...Cleveland NF is all amongst these areas...Some BLM, but your main spots will be in the CNF...Which almost goes all the way to Mexico...Good luck

Rich,

You may want to attend a NWTF monthly meeting sometime...4th Tuesday of the month at Hamburger Factory in Poway...Starts at 6:30 pm

You don't need to be a member of NWTF, but it would really help you, if you joined...Lots of like minded hunters, both vets & newbies... :blush:

Awesome thank you the only other person i know that hunts lives in Wyoming so some fellow newbies and experienced archers locally would be nice. Is there anything out in the San Bernardino area?
