Anyone hearing many gobbling? Little over a month away before the season starts and I cannot wait. Anyone seeing any good flocks?

I'm biding my time right now between building calls and outside work. Not quite time for scouting in my areas. Birds still in their winter flocks. Won't be long though!!! They're killing 'em in Florida, lol!

Lots of birds and lots of gobbling. My birds are firing up now. Battle royal yesterday. While all the 2,3 and 4 yr olds fought for pecking order the Jakes were breeding the hens. This warm weather has them cranking. They started gobbling on the roost at 4:35 AM today.

This time of year it’s a waste. A month from now those birds will be spread out and gone or moved to a new location

Agreed. It’s fun to hear them but it won’t really play into your success in May.

I don't hunt turkeys because I want to, I hunt turkeys because I have to.

There is a field behind the office i work out of and there were 4 longbeards in full strut yesterday with a couple disinterested hens. 2 more longbeards and 4 jakes were on other end of the field watching them like i was.

Spent the entire day yesterday shed hunting and scouting. Very little turkey sign where I have killed many, making me believe the birds are still in their winter locations and routines. Did see a flock of prob 40 birds with at least 6 stutters when I was traveling though. Will not be long things will be changing.

Ticks are very bad in the Western part of the state, the dog and I were both covered when we returned home..

Don't Gobble at me...

I disagree about where you see them now, you won’t later. I have found that those concentrations will still be right there come opening day. Some obviously will have moved off , but for the most part, still worth watching that spot.
I’m hearing a fair amount of gobbling activity so far.
