Brookville Lake In Indiana (Turkeys)

Discussion in 'Indiana Turkey Hunting' started by Dexter Johnson, Feb 7, 2018.

  1. New to the area. I would appreciate any advice. Have one question? Non Toxic Shot or Lead at the lake?
     
  2. I will give you all the information I can. A week or so before season go down into your spot or area that you may find via topo maps. I have camped at Brookville 3 years opening day for 3 days except last year and the year before. There are turkey absolutley everywhere in Brookville so no area is a bad area. Scouting is so important. We actually found our primary spot while driving around opening day and saw a hen cross the road into the area we ended up hunting. Quackertown is a good spot really they are all good spots. You will see birds and turkey sign everywhere but the calling needs to be soft and not loud as to spook them. In the morning no matter where they are they all work their way to the water and then stick tight around the water sometimes into fields the area around the golf course is a good spot, the area of the island is a good spot around the camp ground up on the ridges is good spot that is the state park campground on the far east side by the DNR house. I would have been there last year but killed my bird 5 mins from my house in the first hour. The year before I went on a guided hunt. You will get close and dont get discourged just keep driving walking looking it will be tiring and mushroom hunters will push them around so just get out early and listen they hammer the week before season and usually opening weekend pretty good then can go quite.
     

  3. Does anyone use avian x turkey decoys? If so which ones work the best? Looking to buy a couple thank you!
     
  4. In most of my set ups, I just use the breeder hen and the jake decoys. I have learned the hard way, more is not necessary better. Good luck my friend!

    I love my Avian X dekes. Brookville is a great hunting area for turkey's and really no where is bad. I killed my largest turkey to date there weight wise 25lb and in the middle of the afternoon...3pm I dropped him. Normal shot loads are fine.

    As far as my deke set up, I have had HUGE success by going to a single hen.
     
  6. Hey Dexter. A buddy of mine and I usually go down and camp. This year we are going to stay in my Dads camper or camp in our tents. We go down we hunt hard, eat like kings, and sit around a fire. Your more than welcome to join us. I am recording everything this year again so if you want you can learn the lake like us. We have some good places.
     
  7. I'd like to meet u out there sometime binecollector14 and get some pointers I've hunted there 5 years now and have yet to kill one I always hunt on the west side of the lake by the old dnr house or on down that road where it dead ends at the pipeline
