Hey, as a southeast CT resident this is my 3rd or 4th season hunting spring turkey. I was able to tag out this year on private land with three fine birds. First two were taken the first week of the season: Apr. 26th and 28th. Last was taken on May 17. He was still hot and with a hen. From what I've seen, this year was no different from any other year, besides the fact that like you said there may be an increase in # of toms/jakes seen/heard. First week of the season found the birds pretty fired up. On May 24 (last week of season) my dad was on a hot bird. Surprisingly with no calling needed, he flew from his perch and homed in on the hen decoy 15 yds from us. Inexperience on my dad's behalf proved it to be an unsuccessful hunt. From what I have observed, for the most part toms were henned up all throughout the season.
