I dont recommend breaking the law to harvest your bird. NWTF worked hard to bring the wild turkey population up to where it is today.

Good camo, good cover, a good call and lots of patience.
Only place to get an Osceola turkey is the southern 2/3 of Florida.

OP check out any of the following WMA's:

Green Swamp
Lake Panasofkee
Half Moon
Jumper Creek
Richloam

Thanks guys. I'm going to do some scouting. I have some ideas on where a nice canal backs up to a heavy tree line to start. Also need to practice calling. For now I've been using a box call. Seems to be the easiest to learn lol
