First report

Postby ticklishtompro » March 22nd, 2013, 9:01 pm

Got a report today that a friend of mine heard his first gobbles this morning. Good news as our LTH is next weekend. Have also seen a few gobbler groups starting to break up. I figure the middle of next week and we will start seeing some strutters. What do you all think.

Birds seemed to be breaking up into smaller groups in SE MN this week. We saw a lot of 5-10 bird groups and a few lone gobblers.

Did some scouting this morning. Heard some gobbles off the roost and saw my first strutter of the year! It is supposed to be a little warmer this week, so things could be pretty good for the kids on Friday. We had our classroom portion today and the little girl I am taking just smoked the target! We are good to go if we can get one in range!!

I sure a heck hope so man, this has been a long winter. I am sitting on almost 250,000.00 dollars of bike's, anybody need one...
If it does not warm up soon I'll be to busy to take off in April. I was out road hunting & glassing some regular spots one of those warm sunny days last week and not a bird in site...
look em' in the eye before you give em' the shaft...
be a man hunt public land...

It still looks like this here on some mornings

Fog and hoar frost should be a sign of melt but you sure wouldn't know it by the snow piles lying about.
Cardinals and crows occasionally sing, turkeys are silent. When I see them they seem very listless.

I have been hearing a lot more reports of gobbling now to.

Gobbles, gobbles everywhere this morning... Truly a beautiful morning in the heart of turkey country.
With the amount of yelping going on I'm sure there was a whole lot of struttin going on.
Now if the snow and ice pack would melt away; and that should completed after this weekend. Depending on which weather forecaster you choose to believe- the temps will be 40-56. YES!!

Temp is 42 today! Just got in from an afternoon stroll along the gravel road-
3 gobblers were strutting for 2 hens
Further down a group of 5 listless appearing jakes flushed off the road and about 200 yards out 3 of them fell out to the air?! Half the state must have heard me whistling Vic back. The jakes just rolled around for awhile and then stumbled off; hope they make it.
It's been bad around here most of March apparently leaving some the birds very weak.
At least those suburban turkeys have access to bird feeders
