    I have a credit with Delta Airlines that has to be utilized before May, so I am thinking a long weekend somewhere that I can hunt or fish. My initial thoughts were:

    - Fly fish the midge hatch in Bozeman, MT with friends who live in MT
    - Merriams or Goulds Turkey Hunt in Mid-West or Easterns in the south (public or guided not sure yet)


    Any suggestions would be appreciated, need to bite the bullet and book something soon. I would prefer public land and DIY due to the cost and wanting to hunt solo in new country.

    West TN has a lot of paper mill land. Plus it has Land Between Lakes. Which is divided into KY & TN.

    You could try for an Osceola in central or northern Florida...plenty of fishing venues.

    Really? I haven't known of any since Westvaco left the TWRA program. I'd love to hear more about it. PM if you prefer.

    If you bow hunt, Nebraska has some prime public turkey ground that gets hardly any pressure until shotgun opens.
