Hunted in the rain this morning. My hearing is so bad I don't hear them when the rain isn't pounding on the leaves so I wasn't surprised not to hear anything while it was raining. But, about 8:00 the rain quit and it wasn't too bad a morning. I had a tad over eight miles on the bike this morning and never heard a bird. There was no scratching, tracks or scat anywhere along this game lands road where I have had good success during past years.
That is the third morning this season and second in a row that I didn't hear a gobble.
