Been watching the NY site here and wondering the same thing. Doesn't seem to be many on here that used to be since they changed the site format. I left my town the first of February and headed south. Have a son in Va, Winchester area. Came down 87 to Albany then 88 to 81 to Va. Did not see a bit of wild life on the way down, not even road kills. One day here in Va I did see half dozen toms beside the road and the only road kills are skunks!!!! Plan to continue south if all goes well and spend a month in Florida. I can't take the winters any more in my older years, but will head back up the middle of April so I'm back home for 1 May.

I'm with you on that gobbler. Compared to last year this is a ghost site this year ;)

i think things will pick up once the season starts . i'm wondering if the fact that the overall number of turkeys seen to be down so now that the easy birds are gone so are the guys who just wanted to fill tags in a couple of hours so all that left is us diehards . also many of us are ageing and aren't getting out in the woods much any more and the kids for the most part just don't seem interrested .even dou the guys that are here seem to be good and true hunters and that's enough for me...wayne

I think it is something else Wayne, to many have disappeared that were on all last winter. Had lots of chats with fellows from all parts of NY.
Dan where are you located, sounds like you will get a gobbler this year.

I have to say I feel a little bit behind by a week or two. I usually have to fight off getting pumped to early for the season. I have been busy but I can't hold it off anymore. I've been to all the sportsman shows around my area and got a few new calls. Got all my gear out this weekend to see if I need to repair anything. Started working the calls and looking forward to the first gobbles. If the weather behaves I should hear gobbles this weekend according to my records. I keep track of the first gobbles and have for over ten years now. I hunt near Cooperstown and love NY. I hunt the entire month of May in NY we have a camp, but also hunt my farm and some state land in CT. Glad to see you guys are still thinking turkey.
