1st weekend of march they should start to gobble off the roost. (in East TN, WEST TN is earlier)

Take a HS strut HootTube, and go to a ridge/field 15 before day light, if you hear nothing at daylight hoot in the tube, say who cooks...who cooks for YOUUUUUUUUU!!! rolling the u.

if you hear nothing go to a next field, do the same thing, do this until 30min to 1 hour after daylight. If you don't hear anything go home and try it next weekend.

*******************What ever you do as much temptation as there is DO NOT USE A HEN or YELP BEFORE SEASON!!!! This could screw up opening day. If the gobblers comes and doesn't find you, You will be screwed for opening morning.*******************

When the season comes around you should have some gobblers pinpointed.

Now during the season do this all day long until you find one that gobbles. You may even hen call or use a crow call in mid day/morning. (possible a gobble)

Never give up. I have killed 7 gobblers in my short turkey hunting career , and only 1 has been before 12:15.

I have my best luck after 12:00.

I think the hens go to their nest and leave the gobblers. When this happens the gobblers get lonely and want to find a hen to breed. Then you can call one up easy after 12:00.
