Gonna be windy!

I hope everyone who ventures out tomorrow and beyond much success. I'm glad I saw many kids got lucky last weekend. That's always a positive. But tomorrow will probably be my first turkey day in the woods where the winds are expected to be ripping pretty good. I'm going to moving our setup from hardwood field edge to inside the edge a good 100 yards on the leeward side of where most the birds historically roost. I'm hoping for an hour or so of calmer winds in the AM. My wife will be with me for her first turkey hunt. She won't be the shooter since I want to show her things that could possibly happen (roll and fly, complete miss, turning shot, etc...). All I hope for is some gobbling which the wind won't help any.

Good luck to all and stay safe. I wear an orange hat while moving. No point in causing needless accidents.

Good luck to all! I'll be on public ground tomorrow where I killed my bird last year. Hopefully I have the same luck on my side. Shoot straight and most of all identify your target!

40 degrees in the morning 13-14 mph wind.I'll take it happily.I have hunted in harder wind,thunderstorms with lightning.I hunted one thunderstorm with lightning and was cold as ---- practically frozen.I was soaked even with rain gear and I was busted by a bird coming in to me when I gave up.Moral of my story bad weather doesn't stop any animal from being killed.It is the breeding cycle they can be killed in any weather.If you can brave the weather a bird can and will be killed.Me I'm going out unless I die tonight in my sleep.Good luck fellas post pics.
