Sometimes it helps to have someone hunt with you when your getting started, someone with experience.

Look for areas with exposed soil along the edges of fields along a woods. If there are patches that look to be bowl shaped, turkey are most likely to use them to dust themselves to keep cool and get rid of insects. Hunt these area in the late morning and afternoon when it starts to heat up. Also the evening before you go out hunting do a little scouting. Use a locater call, like an owl call, and pin point where the toms are roosting and set up close to their location the next morning.

well first i would just drive around in the morning and try to spot turkeys from the road, so you have a general idea of where their are birds at. if you dont have permission for that property, try and get it. after you have a spot that you know holds turkeys, then try and find the general area they roost in with locator calls either in the evening or early morning. typically i set up in the woods, and on field edges. if its raining, turkeys like fields with grass no more than 8 inches high. i killed my turkey last year in a grass field during a rainstorm.
