The way the weather has been this year what's everyone's opinion on this years hatch? With all the ice up north I think most major river bottoms will see flooding once the ice starts thawing. plus with the season opening this weekend and everything being so late I don't think much breeding is taking place now? I've heard that its TWRA Plan to not open the season every year till most the hens are bred then once the season opens if every male bird was killed we would still have the next generation because once a gobbler breeds a hen she stays breed to him for I think it's 28 days? So her whole clutch of eggs are fertile even if she's only bred once.i hope we have a good hatch this year I don't think we did last year in my area I never saw a single poult.
