    Yes

    Turkeys have a route they travel starting from the roost going
    to water then feeding ,then siesta,then more feeding, then water
    and then back to a roost near the same one used before.

    Some times this can cover several ranches so knowing when and
    where could mean the differance in success.

    Hunting near a roost is illegal in Texas as in most states plus it,s unethical
    so using a trail cam is a good way to pattern them.

    It has worked well for me and have had good hunts in the middle of the
    day because I knew where they would be at that time.
