They were unusually quiet this morning (I'm hunting near Fredericksburg) - only heard one bird right before dawn, and then silence. Either they are all henned up or the incoming front has them off kilter, as sometimes happens.
Hopefully in South Texas they don't start until after Easter. Going the day after Easter for a week to finish the saga of building a new camp and my two boys want to shoot some turkey's. We have a good population so hopefully it wont be a factor. I don't know how many turkey's it take to pick 400lbs of seed from a 5 acre food plot but they got me twice, scratched every inch of it.
They were only gobbling on the roost Saturday and Sunday but Monday they gobbled on the ground till about 9am. Still henned up but luckily found a lone gobbler and called him a long ways across a huge field to decoys. They came to decoys silently the first 2 days but talked the third. Alice area
