Turkey Season Opens April 15

Spring turkey season opens this Saturday, 4/15/17.  The youth weekend occurred the first weekend of April.  The youth season was difficult, partially because the winter was tough and spring didn’t warm up as quickly as usual.  Hence the toms were not ready for the date.  The toms seem to be ready now.  I’ve been hearing the gobbling early and late in the day for the last couple weeks.

The following pics were taken by Tom Fritsch.  The first pic shows a tom strutting around with his fan on display.  The second pic shows at least two seemingly unimpressed hens.TomsTurkeys_1TomsTurkeys_2
