    Is it spring yet!

    I was plowing a customers driveway last week when I noticed some turkeys in the woods. Not that uncommon at this driveway. I had finished and turned around to leave when I looked threw my side mirror, this is what I saw.
    I was surprised to see the adult toms gobbling, struting, and even chasing hens. They were so occupied that I got out of the truck and took the picture with my IPhone. Our season doesn't open until the 1st week in May. I've never seen them do this with snow on the ground and temps around 30. Maybe there wishing for an early spring too!

    well thats cool
    and well I think many folks just don't know, but a turkey will gobble all yr, and strut too
    they just do it a TON more in mating season
    second seldom known fact about turkeys, hens can gobble to, just very few do it, don't believe me, look it up!, its a fact1

    and over the past few yrs here where I am at, the mating has been starting earlier and eariler
    global warming or what?? but last few yrs shed hunting in late feb/ mid march I been seeing and hearing them gobble there brains out and with flocks of hens, putting on major shows, even fighting with other hens
    then come mid april, I am busting hens off nests

    so I think spring is here to many turkeys
    then again if you only got some once a yr, you might be jumping the gun sooner too LOL

    I think we are all ready. I was out hunting groundhogs last Saturday. Saw a few while driving, but none while hunting.
    I may be opinionated...but, my opinion is the only one that matters anyway.

    Goundhogs ! There still sleeping here, under a blanket of snow. Got my first wiff of skunk last night. Thats a good sign spring is coming. My wife is talking about bringing in the bird feeders at night before the bears come out.
