Turkeys do what they do regardless of temp IMO. I will hunt them the same as if it were 75 on sat. I will us early season tactics regardless

The forecast, overcast damp and cool, is less than ideal for my neck of the woods. I'll be out scouting and listening but do not expect to hear much in the places I am going to. If I do hear some, I expect it to be sporadic gobbling of the limb with little to no gobbling once their feet hit the ground. With that said, if I were guiding a juvenile this weekend, I'd hit the woods in full force regardless of the weather forecast.

My man killed his first turkey when it was 19 degrees.
It will be ok. :D

It's always nicer to get kids out in nice warm weather with fired up vocal birds. Don't think we will be that lucky this weekend. Still hope to score the kid a bird.

My nephew killed his 1st turkey maybe 5-6yrs ago on youth turkey hunt and they were gobbling while it was snowing, the pasture field was white when he shot him

Turkeys are crazy. Sometimes they dont gobble good on blue bird mornings, and sometimes they gobble like crazy after the thunder during thunderstorms.

From my personal experience, I think that cooler mornings are better than warm mornings. I like mornings where its below 50, about 40-45, and with a heavy dew. Plus it makes the hunt more enjoyable during the day when it isn't 80 degrees.

I'd rather have a cool morning over a hot one any day of the week. The most awesome hunt I ever had was in a downright snowstorm
