Rainy days!

Postby trkyhntr80 » March 11th, 2011, 6:35 am

I'm looking to go scouting the temperature came up into the 70s the past couple weeks up until about a week ago.Then last week brought seven inches of rain in my county.it stopped raining finally on Wednesday but the temperatures are closer to fifty now.My question I guess would be is it even worth it for me to go scouting this weekend or should I let the temps get warmer again for another week r so?Are turkeys really moving much in the cold driving rainK

Turkeys need to eat and unless you are in snow covered ground like I am (3-4 + feet) they will most likely be out looking for food. Even if you don't see the birds look for signs of them and just have a good time learning the country and being outdoors.

I say go. A lot of your usual scouting signs (tracks, scat, dusting spots, etc.) might be washed away, but it's better than sitting at home. Just wear boots!
