Hang in there. I finally tagged out May 21 and May 27, and both birds were within a mile of the NY line.

Has been a bad year for sure. I only got out 7 times and my buddy only 3. We only heard two gobbles all together and they came home with us, both birds taken after 1030. My honey holes don't seem to be holding any birds, although we did take two have not seen much sign of anything else.
