I will see what I can find from all my stuff most is just in memory now. Just for the record I never said never. I know where setter man is coming from and agree for the most part but I won't say with certainty that mother nature can't mix it up from time to time. Yes I think some or most of the claims earlier in the season may have some fabrication or confusion to them but I will not say its not possible. There are some on her that if they said it I wouldn't question it l, however with people you don't know you always have to take everything with a grain of salt.

My main point is just trying to make sure people understand that temp is not really a MAJOR factor in turkey breeding same as the moon has not significant role in deer rutting. I will say that this year I have seen some different behavior in turkeys from other years so anything is possible and I wouldnt be the first time I was wrong lol


Agree with the above. Nothing is impossible in nature, however the reason I question this stuff is the doom and gloomers are the same ones who claim wild stuff. That leads me to have doubts, plus we see pics of everything yet poults tend to elude the camera every time, until later this month.

The other thing that makes me doubt is the size of reported poults being seen, they are reported as being so developed that breeding would have occurred in january. The size ratio doesn't add up and makes me have serious doubts as to the truth behind the reports.

When the season concludes I will post my opinions on this year. Some will be surprised and it will be interesting to most who have done this for a while.

It's terrible here as well. Usually by now some are freed up, but everyone has hens, it is tough going in these parts right now.

Check back in during deer season if you think this minuscule debate/discussion is alarming. The Serious Deer Hunting Forum in November will showcase many debating our buck limit and all the negative effects of hunters shooting young bucks. You will really get to see sparks fly as people's emotions runneth over. For the record, my experiences while afield are posted here mainly for sharing my observations in my part of the state in hopes someone may be able to glean something useful from it, nothing more and nothing less. I also enjoy reading other's experiences while afield as there is typically something to be learned from all. I draw general conclusions based on mine and other's past hunting experiences, as well as the literature I read, however, I have never claimed to be a know it all arm chair biologists. I hope my posts do not come across that way. I just wanted to set the record straight on that in case anyone here got that vibe. Happy hunting to all. \:\)

Wannabe biologists? Who do you speak of and I hope its not me, because I am pretty sure my degree and research projects would make your statement false.u
