I hear alot of bird @ the first of season but it seems they are henned up right off the roost.Mid season action is slow but I still hear some birds. My opinion is late season is the best as long as U haven't pressured the birds and got them call shy.

I agree! Didn't know there was a bad time to be in the spring turkey woods chasing them gobblers.......

Every year is different IMO. Sometimes its real good at the first and bad at the end, then other times it right the opposite. Thats why its important to hunt it all the way through. BUT,.. if i only had one week to hunt period and thats its thats all,.. it would be the 3rd week in april. Right in the middle!!

By FAR, the best week of the season is the second week of April. Birds have definetly broken up from winter flocks and are most vulnerable to calling.

That being said, I gave the second week up a few years ago simply because so many birds were killed opening week leaving around half the number of birds to chase by the second week. For that reason, I always hunt the opener now. But it's a gamble... a cold, late winter could potentially result in a complete bust, though.

That's also why I'm a little pissed about them screwing with opening week dates and opening the season the earliest it has ever opened since I've been hunting. So much for tying the opener to the 'saturday closest to April 1'...

I'm sure it is different in other areas but the first week in May is always awesome for me. I always kill a lot of birds during mid April but for whatever reason I have killed a longbeard during the last weekend of the season for the last 9 years.
