strut zone choice

So I had seen turkeys all over these plowed/ grassy fields when the weather was warm.

Got in there on Saturday, heard gobblers on the roost in the adjacent woods and was waiting for them to hit the fields. The whole flock came off the roost and headed straight up the hill and further into the woods for the morning, basically ignoring the fields we were set up in. Could the cold temps, (near freezing) have been the reasons they chose not to go to the fields, i.e., no bugs out in that weather? Any thoughts?

I prefer my kid hunt and fish rather than steal and deal,

My guess is that the gobbler found his hens and didn't need to go straight to the field first thing in the morning. My bet is that later in the morning he would be in it, unless there is another field nearby

There is no such thing as a stupid question, just stupid people asking questions.

<span style="font-weight: bold"> The colder weather has curtailed the bugs for awhile. Till the warmer weather comes again, the turkeys won't use the fields much....Rain and showers could change that...

When the bugs come back, the turkeys should, too....As you know, there is no absolutes when dealing w/ turkeys....</span>
