I  am turkey hunting as I type this. Not a gobble to be heard. I guess our season is about done.

Sitting in the woods with no gobbles, is better than sitting on a pile of rubble!

No luck on my first day.  Had one coming straight in and was at about 100 yards gobbling and fanning out, then it started to downpour all of a sudden and he turned around and took offf from where he came.  Maybe tomorrow

Weather helped the turkeys win this battle.  Had 40-50 mph wind gusts in my face this morning, along with about 5 degrees temperature with the wind chill and snow.  Barely heard one a few times but he wasn't moving all morning.

First day was a bust, Up at 4am, in the woods by 5:30 and not a sound from a bird all morning, lots of woodpeckers hammering and only heard one shot all day  :(

!st Hunt of the year...I wasn't lucky this a.m. the weather is not cooperating this year..and now its calling for 7 to 14 days of rain and cold (cool) weather...that is neither good for hunting or good for the turks nesting or having them becoming more active...no gobbles in the roost today..we set up before daylight and were only 40 yards from a Hen in the roost, unknown to us at the time, no gobblers with her...she was an adult Hen and it was just one of those days a cool sprinkle every once in a while..we heard gobbles late and I had Hens 20 feet to 30 yards from me but no gobbler following...my Straight Creek Calls are working awesome..brought in  at least 2 hens...the gobblers gobbling just not interested either in my call or the live hens around us....better luck tomorrow but I don't see our luck changing until this slump of bad weather passes...the news say were in one of those bad areas that are going to get one storm after another for up to 14 days,,,,maybe luck will change on the 15th...lots of birds around just weather problems @--0--0118

Another Hard day turk hunting in NY...rain,rain and more rain and cold...as I said before not good for the hunters or the turks...some areas of NY have better weather but here in Central NY its just plain flooded and bad...went out this morning...no gobbling in the roost or hens....saw 2 adult gobblers and my partner missed one...impatient didn't wait till he was close enough..but..it was a bushwhack job anyways...did not respond to calls or they also were both alone and with no hens...it was cold you could see your breath when calling......I saw more gobblers leaving the area in fields than in the woods...my partner went back after I had to leave early for a prior engagement.....well better luck next time...I dont plan on hunting till weather change...maybe saturday..if it changes before , I'll be out...Good  Luck to whoever is still hunting @--0--0118...thisd is the worst opener that I have seen in quite a few years >:(
