GOBBLERS LOCKED UP WITH HENS

Postby BOWHUNTERCOP » May 1st, 2008, 12:14 am

We noticed that the gobblers are locked up with there hens this week here in northwestern NJ, they aren't repling to our calls. We can't go back out till Monday May 5th. Do you think the gobblers that are with hens yesterday will be seeking a new girlfriend by Monday?

We've also had some windy rainy weather that have messed with the birds lately here in the U.P..  Over the course of a couple weeks I have seen 36 birds that roosted all together two weeks ago, split into groups of three and roost elsewhere only to regroup into 30 some in the same tree the week later.  I think they are asserting their respective domininance and regrouping in the bad nasty weather, but I'm not sure.  I wouldn't worry about new girlfriends, just find out where they are roosting the day before or so and setup as close as possible to their fly down spot and morning travel route.  Good luck.
