"Turkeys will key in on moist-soil units when they dry out," Hatfield explains. "They become a hot spot for turkeys searching out the high-protein insects needed for egg creation. I've seen turkeys strutting across moist-soil units this time of year."
Hatfield regularly hunts a moist-soil unit in South Carolina where chufa is planted and then flooded. This habitat provides excellent wood duck
hunts in the fall and serves as a food plot for spring turkeys.
