Turkey numbers in the north ??

Just curious as to how the turkey numbers / gobbling activity is looking in Potter & Tioga counties this spring.

I spent two days runing and gunning the end of the 1st week last year in the Ansonia area. Put on probably 7-10 miles opn my boots and never heard a gobble. Locals said that the 2010-2011 winter was really rough on them and the surviving birds were all down low. I was hunting high.

How's it looking for this year ??

Planning to arrive Sunday and hunt Monday & Tuesday of the 2nd week up there again.

Re: Turkey numbers in the north ??

ive seen a few lone gobblers and a few of them still in groups of long beards later in the day on the way home from work,no struters though and no hens around them. havent been out to listen for any gobbling yet though. I think here the birds are a little behind the 2G birds as far as breeding activity, gobbling and strutting though. I thought they were gonna be fired up early this year but this recent cold spell seems to be keeping things at the norm.

Just so long as they are there.
