It's staying cold up here. In the high 20's yesterday but very cold North wind[&:] Not going to be much better till the end of next week. Still much snow on ground here, but some warm days it would disappear quite fast as we didn't really have any thaws during the winter.

Western NY is still real cold gonna be close to single digits tonight. No snow, but 2 scouting trips hasn't turned up any sounds, but good sign. I am hopeful April will warm up...it better and with it some roosting and solid gobbling!

Still cold up here!!![&:] Can't get out to do any looking still lots of snow in the woods. Would have to go on snowshoes and I surmise that the birds are still feeding around the back yard bird feeders.

Central New York Ostego/Delaware countys still really cold 20s and lower 30s in the day and teens at night. Higher areas have alot of snow and fields are thawed. Still seeing chasing and fighting and some strutting but this has slowed down do to the weather and the past weeks artic blast. It should be warming up by the end of the week they say the high 40s low 50s and we should see more turkey action in the woods not just the fields. seeing lots of 2-1/2 - 3 year old toms in groups of anywere from 4 to as much as 15 it should be a great season....

Still very cold here too! But I have some great trail cam pics of a group of 5-7 longbeards in my property and I also found the roost site as well!! Heck I even heard them gobbling on the 20th of March! I am excited for the season to start! I am headed to VA to hunt gobblers in about 2 weeks and then I will be home to hunt NY and PA gobblers as well! I can't wait!

Good luck NYSS! In years past I have heard birds gobbling on the roost as early as March 4th. It was actually some of the most gobbling I have heard on the roost. I have yet to get out and scout. I will most likely be out tomorrow. The evening shift really hurts early morning scouting, as it is hard to get up when you get home around 12:15. I just need to motivate myself. I'm sure the first gobbling bird will get me pumped for further scouting, and for the season. Still cold here, but the sun has been out, and we are in a warming trend. Good luck to those heading out for trout season as well!

Well, today I witnessed my first strutter of the spring season. He had about 12 hens with him. This already looks bad. I am hoping with this many hens, other gobblers from the area(if there is any) will filter in. In another area, I found loads of sign. I only did brief scouting, but will do some more thorough scouting in the days to come. Hopefully this wonderful spring weather will continue. -Kevin
