I was only in N Wis for 2 weeks, May 11th to the 25th, but I have turkey hunted Wis for 9 springs now so I have sort of a feel for it.
For some reason I usually don't see many jakes in my area in spring, some years I don't see/hear any. This season I did see 1 in a field with a tom (2 year old by my guess) and 2 hens. I also think I heard a jake try to gobble one morning and he was roosted with two 2 year olds. I know those toms were 2 year olds because I saw both of their spurs real close.
I did see a lot of hens though. Saw the actual birds and also tracks. Some hen flocks were without a gobbler as I did not hear any gobbles and saw no gobbler tracks with the hen tracks. I did find one nest on the 23rd and it had 7 eggs in it. I went back on the 25th to take a picture of the hen on the nest but she busted as soon as she saw me. Maybe I shouldn't have done that.
There were 9 eggs in the nest then.
As far as the hatch and good conditions;
It seems the weather has been favorable (at least where I hunt near Hwy 8) so far. Not hot but not cold either with most lows in the 50's and high's in the 70's. Rain is the main concern now along with possible flooding of nests in low areas. I remember reading Lovett Williams and he said that rain was not that big of a deal to poults. But he was talking about Florida where it is much warmer. I wonder at what temperature is a wet poult in danger? Will a wet poult die at 55 degrees, or 65 degrees? Or does it take colder temps than that. So far I am optimistic about the hatch but I saw a high of 68 in the 7th day of a 7 day forecast. They didn't predict what the low would be yet.
