I would say Blanton Creek WMA is the best in the area. Sign in hunts from April 10-May15.

He was a mighty hunter before the LORD (Genesis 10:9)

After the 1st 2 weeks at Blanton it's almost impossible to call a bird in.I've heard some of them guys in the woods calling and they sound like wounded geese.Those turkey have heard a lil bit of everything by that time.
A person is only as good as their word and the respect they show towards others!

Try out Big Lazer WMA, and Hanahatchee WMA all of them are within an hour of Columbus. I lived there for many years, killed turkeys on Blanton, B Lazer and the Hatch. Good luck... they sure are tuff hunting, lots of id-jits that like to screw it up for others.

I used to see alot of turkey mostly hens but now its all hogs, and some deer. I recently killed a small buck and 2 hogs in the same day, so it was a good hunt. Point is if you like pigs go to the hatch.
