    struting/gobbleing

    It seems everything this yr is earlier than normal. Even the turkeys, at full strut, white heads, gobbleing like crazy. It looks like it could be a good yr. I,m wondering what makes the hens lay and nest? Is it tempeture, time of yr, tom's pusing them to do so, or what?
    The opener couldn't come sooner, I'm ready.
    what goes around, comes around. (I sure do hope so)!!

    I would say that the temperature has a lot to do with it when they are laying their eggs. Probably a lot relies on subsequent days in a row at steady temperatures (the right temps) to get it to happen.
    Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.

    Its definitely going to be an interesting year to turkey hunt with greenup underway before the season even started, the early warm temperatures, and the previous two bad hatching seasons in a row. Could be challenging. What makes them nest and lay...don't know the answer to that one. Everything is probably 2-3 weeks ahead of schedule around here.
    "...the deepest, most permanent features of all great moments outside are the names, faces, descriptions, and emotions. The antlers on the wall...well, they're just bones affixed to boards. But what they represent, however, is flesh and blood - fathers and sons, friends spending time with friends and the the seasons of life when the people we love were still with us. These old antlers on the wall...well, take a seat, my friend, and I'll tell you all about them." -Rev. Zeke Pipher
