Since there might be beginners or some that might benefit from useful information, I will start this post for those who want to share info.

Turkeys hate rain, messes with their hearing in the woods with the rain hitting the leaves, they go to the open areas so they can see danger approaching... they especially like green areas.

Same thing on windy days, swaying limbs and such make them nervous and hinders their hearing.... they head to open areas to see approaching danger.

These situations are also when decoys can be effective. Decoys are something the turkeys can see, incase they can't hear your calls.

I have used that information last spring as a beginner and was successful 2 different times.....
