SpurHuntinHillbilly have you seen the thread below? Take a look at it and scroll down through it before the season.

Hey NY boys! I don't live in your great state but have a camp we rent for the whole month of May. Been hunting up there for about 23 years. Hunt state land in the Cooperstown area. I live in eastern CT I hunt some here, but mostly up there. I usually hear gobbles on my farm here about the 2nd week of March. Looking forward to getting up for some scouting if the  snow ever goes away. Last year was the best year I have ever had. I didn't see many birds all last winter but when spring came birds were everywhere. I never set foot in the woods last year without at least hearing gobbles. I hope it goes that well this season. COME ON MAY!

Thanks for the report Wayne. My blood is starting to boil and the wait is always tough. Good thing for web sites like this.

I sure hope it is better than last year. No one up here had a good year. We figure because we had a real warm spell early that by the time the season came in hens were all ready nesting. There were a few gobbling birds the first week but after that nothing. My buddy missed the only bird that we called in. Was the same from everybody I talked to across the whole upper part of the state.
