    State Forests and some State Parks (where permitted) , though not closed to MTB, will be ride at your own risk in the morning.
    Game Lands are prohibited all times of day during May, except Sundays (no hunting on Sundays)

    Hunter's can't stalk for Spring Gobbler. They have to be stationary (in a blind or makeshift shelter) and call the gobbler to them. They also don't have to wear orange once stationary, only when they're moving locations or in/out of the woods.

    linky - search for "gobbler"

    SPRING GOBBLER (Bearded bird only): April 30-May 31, 2011. Daily limit 1, season limit 2. (Second spring gobbler may be only taken by persons who possess a valid special wild turkey license.) From April 30-May 14, legal hunting hours are one-half hour before sunrise until noon; from May 16-31, legal hunting hours are one-half hour before sunrise until one-half hour after sunset.
    upshot: trust no-one.
