Other Places for Turkey Hunting

If you are nowhere near the Mauk city area – where Gray Ghost Plantation resides – then there are state and national parks where you can carry out for your turkey hunting needs. These places, however, don’t provide the expertise and homely lodging services that Gray Ghost Plantation offers,

McGraw Ford WMA

Located in Cherokee County on the Etowah River, this 2,255-acre property provides hunting opportunities for turkeys and other animals such as deer, bears, and small game. They don’t provide lodging, however.

Buck Shoals WMA

This park is located in White County and offers guests their 582-acre property. And while this Wildlife Management Area (WMA) offers turkey hunting to patrons, hunting events are only exclusive to the youth. In other words, not all ages are able to perform turkey hunting here.

John’s Mountain WMA

This massive hunting preserve located in four counties (Walker, Whitefield, Gordon, and Floyd) offers hunting opportunities to all guests who are interested. Because of its size, however, it can be difficult knowing where exactly to look for specific game, such as turkeys. Also, the park only allows primitive camping as opposed to lodging.
