  1. My worst public land hunting experience was when I showed to turkey hunt during a prescribed burn. I wish I would have know. Of course hunting after the burn is very advantageous.

    • I had a similar experience while scouting some public land, only it wasn’t a prescribed burn it was a forest fire and I almost got caught in the middle of it due to swirling winds. Ended up having to help the local Fire Department get into the WMA with heavy equipment to clear all vegetation around the fire to rob it of fuel. Was a bit scary for a bit.
