Re: Turkeys and Rain
Open areas if possible for various reasons. Also, if you have a blind use it because friction calls (as opposed to a diaphram) work best if you're trying to round up a distant bird in heavy rain if you can keep them dry. If you happen to know that you're in an area where turkeys roost or will definitely be heading, sit tight and call sparingly and quietly.
Called a nice bird in for my buddy yesterday in the hard rain and he was escorted in by two hens who were talking but they were extremely soft and quiet. Not a single gobble all morning in the rain, but apparently gobbling is not a pre-requisite to being shot.
