I wish it would green up this early every year.... it makes things so much easier on the farms I hunt.
I hope thats sarcasim I hear


I was being serious. The green up allows me to get in really tight on birds, which ups the odds a lot. If this was my first year hunting, I would think turkey hunting is the easiest kind of hunting there is. This is my 16th year of turkey hunting and it has been by far the best spring I can remember.

I'm glad I'm not the only one. Many people that I've spoken to outside the TNdeer family have said the same thing, but these aren't hardcore turkey hunters. To elaborate, I hunt northern middle TN in mostly wooded areas with little to no agriculture and few pastures and green fields.
In years past, the first few weeks birds are everywhere, gobblers henned up and you wait them out, a lonely tom will come your way hopefully and you might harvest the bird. The next couple of weeks a lot of the hens have been bred, and you can usually burp loud and a turkey will gobble, and it seems there is a gobbler on every ridge some mornings. The last couple of weeks, if I haven't tagged out, the hens are nested, jakes are running with toms to see where those last few hens are, and boom seasons over. Sound familiar? I thought so, LOL!

Its been a pretty good season. I've been in on 12 turkey killings and 2 misses. Of those 12 turkey killings, 5 were mine, and 1 was my sons first turkey.

No, property I hunt is 4 different fields split up with small thickets. Birds are always there in the spring. But this year it was dead. Fields were already sprayed and brown opening morning. Ground was worked by the second weekend. Nothing there to hold em on my property.

can't answer with a simple yes or no... lol... mainly because it's only my 2nd year turkey hunting so I have little to base off of.

Gotcha, those are three great counties to turkey hunt in. My buddies (4 different guys) that hunt Stewart and Houston have killed several this year, but they echo the same comments about the season as I do. Interesting for sure.
