Oh yeah, revs me up every Spring. Our population is way down though. It makes it tough hunting.

I don't understand this, is there required social contact involved for these hunts? I've never put in for one, just seems weird to cancel something that is a solo venture.

May be like some of the national parks being "closed." No staff on site (TWRA?), so they don't want the activity.

I'm always too busy in the Spring to hunt Turkey or at least that's my story and I'm sticking to it.  There's been talk of an albino turkey in my neck of the woods and on the way into work this morning (working from home is not an option for me during this time) I got a glimpse of it.  I will do my best to get a photo and post.

Has anybody got out early and heard any gobbling?

Yeah they cancelled my hunt but send out emails letting everyone know to get out and enjoy the outdoors. If you don’t hunt turkeys don’t start. It’s more addictive than deer hunting. Being a route driver I’ve seen a bunch of them in full strut for the last month.

Yeah it can be addictive. I probably enjoy it more than deer.

Plus they are mighty tasty. I had a co-worker some years ago that had a side business cooking chicken on a stick and such at craft shows and such. Well another co-worker provided the turkey breasts, Tommy the cook cut them into chunks about the size of a hickory nut and fried them puppies up. Just like Andy Griffith said, mmm,mmm GOOOOOD!!

I was out walking around the farm a couple days ago. Heard one gobble twice about 2 pm. I stood still and kept my eyes peeled,  he finally walked out. Goodlooking bird.

Daughter got one opening day of Juvenile season. Me and my buddy got one each hunting together opening day. Got a double beard today and called up one for another buddy. So far I've called in or helped call in 5 birds to the flop.

I killed one Saturday and another Sunday. I've called in 6 jakes since then. No more longboards. Have not heard much this morning yet.

I've been 3 days since opening day and cant find gobblers where I hunt.  Morgan Co, been putting in the miles too.  I walked almost 3 miles Saturday and couldn't get a hit.  Seen some hens, busted one off the roost but no gobbling even at daybreak.  I'm going crazy.  Hopefully just hasn't gotten hot yet, otherwise its going to be a long season.
