Man, this has been a rough season so far. There was promise starting out with gobbling birds and a few close calls. Now, the last few mornings have been dead silent in my part of the state. Others are reporting the same.

Some of the old timers say that that the turkeys bred early this year given the warm temps in late Feb / early March. Which means now they are basically done breeding except for the hens that might have a damaged nest that are coming back into season.
Others say that the season is yet to really get started.

All I know is that I have only missed 5 mornings hunts all year and I am pretty discouraged with the less than stellar results thus far. I have had a few woulda shoulda hunts where two to three birds should be in the freezer, but these silent mornings just have me stumped.

I hate a silent morning.... Just hearing birds is good for the soul. I haven't had a shot at one since I got my first this year. Had a few gobble, had one morning with 14 hens all around me, but nothing. On a positive note, had the 10YO daughter with me to see the 14 hens. She thought that was cool, and it made her want to go again.
