Hey guys I had a quick question that I cant find a clear answer out on the DEC website. My little sister is finally getting her hunting license this year. She will be doing a combo course for Hunting and Bow in March. Now my question, is she allowed to sit in a blind with me for spring turkey? She would obviously not be hunting, nor even holding a bow, just to sit and accompany me while getting used to sitting in a blind for hours. I know she obviously doesn't have 2014/2015 tags so I just want to make sure its okay for her to sit with me. I thought it would be a good way to break her into sitting quietly in the spring rather than in the fall when she will be purchasing a 2015/2016 license. If you could help me out I would really appreciate it.

I was curious as too how many fellow turkey hunters deploy scounting techniques into their preperation for the spring season. I had been lucky to have been graced with spots full of birds so scouting for turkey was never a thought that crossed my mind. However this last year i have lost 4 deer hunting spots that had proven to be just as good for turkey due to people moving and my job relocating from its previous location. I luckily kept one proven winner (a pain of a walk in and out though) and picked up a spot, pretty much a lot of open hardwoods, flat nothing special to the layout except one field the land owner has told me about. Any tips on preseason locating and scouting would be appriciated.
