Pretty much sums it up. Birds over this way ain't doing a thing. It's just real slow right now with somewhere between little and no gobbling whatsoever.

Anyone else had a rough start with still silent turkeys?

Thank God its not just me. I got spoiled last year when birds were going wide open right off the bat. Ive heard exactly one bird gobble one time this year -- at good spots.

I'm still seeing grouped up birds too. It is just so cold, damp, and foggy here in Knox County. I know the bird are around.

I went in the afternoon yesterday and saw 11 birds of various sexes. None of them would come to a call nor even respond. We just need a few days of warm weather to crank them up!

Hens and gobblers roosting on top of one another here. They're very vocal in the trees at first light and then shut it down on the ground. Seen large groups of 20 or so hens with two or three toms and a few jakes feeding together. Toms strutting but not gobbling or answering calls. Need a camera more than a gun right now.
