Where they at?

The weather really does not affect Wild turkeys or breeding and nesting behavior all that much, The amount of daylight is the primary trigger for the start of Turkey breeding activities, so even though spring is taking it's time this year, it won't make that much difference to what stage the Turkeys are in...I myself actually think we are going to have a GREAT season and hit it just right...I have Turkey hunted with Snow on the ground and the romance will still be in the air...The longer the days get the more intense the breeding will become...I will say that I have seen more Gobblers in fields than hens and they will Gobble at the truck horn so as you know..Boys will be Boys if the girls are interested or not...The early warm weather WILL get the Gobblers excited because like most males, they know what's in store in the next few weeks. My advice would be to get aggressive with your calling at the opener and try to convince ol thunder throat that your 1 Hen that is ready!!! The Bird my daughter got Gobbled his head off...Even Double and Triple Gobbling making me think there were multiple birds appraoching but he was just FIRED UP!!! and alone!! What sucks is he was the only Gobbler that I had found before the opener so my work continues...THANK GOD I meet Donion on the site here lol because I feel Great about our chances on his grounds.
