I am back in NM and spring turkey hunting for the first time. Both of my boys are now old enough to hunt and both are excited to get a gobbler. I went down with some buddies to Lincoln National Forest on opening weekend, but it was extremely quiet...very little talking from the Gobblers. I did have a few hens come in close...but no Toms. I have since gone out a few mornings closer to home in Santa Fe National Forest near Jemez Springs, but again...no talking from the gobblers. I have tried locator calls, both owl and crow, to no avail so far.
If anyone can help point us to a location where there may be some birds up here in the Jemez...or elsewhere in the Santa Fe National Forst, it would be greatly appreciated as I would love to post a picture of me and my sons with a gobbler:)
