Are we neighbors? All my birds disappeared, first time in over 25 years. Its very odd.....
I just had a small flock show up yesterday on one of my farms we don't hunt. Haven't had a bird on it since last summer, but 1.5 miles down the road the winter flock had 12 toms and about 50 hens. I'm hoping its from all the habitat improvement I've done on it over the past 4 years. Last year I had 1 tom and 3 hens using it all of April- June. Not hunting it hoping to get hens to imprint on it and hatch successfully, so in the future there will be a huntable flock that uses it every year.
No im not glad lol i wished it open up two weeks agoI actually believe the mid-April opener will be much more exciting for me than April 1st. Many hens will be nesting, and many gobblers will be "lonely". What's difference this year compared to the past, is that 70% of the gobbler won't already be dead by mid-April!
Aren't you glad the season is NOT opening in the morning?
I am. Tornado weather & high winds where I normally turkey hunt.
I’ve always thought the hunting was better in mid to late April so I think you’ll be fine. Need me to come verify let me know.
Im fine either way. Im more interested in fishing for stream smallmouth anyway. But they are sure fired up here at the house todayNo im not glad lol i wished it open up two weeks ago
You catch some fish while I’m hopefully killing a turkey and then we’ll cook them all right then and there. Sounds like a fine time to me.Im fine either way. Im more interested in fishing for stream smallmouth anyway. But they are sure fired up here at the house today
I wont mess with these birds at all. My son will chase these when he gets home after school and on the weekends. I will hunt my family land a few miles away. Thats where i cut my teeth turkey hunting and love renewing that yearly ritual where it all started for meIt’s different for sure. I miss watching the woods around here go from dead of winter through the entire green up while hunting. Oh well, if it helps the birds I’ll adapt. It’s only two trigger pulls now, so it might be over fast anyway lol
