Alabama was tough this year. Hot one day cold the next. Lots of storms....  it made for a pretty poor season..

Welcome Travis425 from SW PA, glad to have you here with us. Looking forward to your input. Pull up a stump and join in the fun. Turkey hunting was slow until this past weekend, it really picked up in North Central PA. I think all the rain has really impacted the turkey hunting in PA

Yeah, you are right!  Rain, rain, and more rain!  Guess the PGC knew this was going to happen, hence the all day hunt starting this week.  First time in PA.

Didn't get a chance to hunt turks this year Travis, but my buds are saying it was an average year.  It's been so dry around here I wasn't sure what affect that might have on 'em.
They're ALL trophies...it's just that some are bigger than others!

Roller coaster describes it well. Had one day when they were really talking. Every other time i went out the woods were dead quiet.  @--0--0117

 If you’re out in rainy weather, pay special attention to fields and open areas. Turkeys do exhibit mating behavior on rainy days – they’re just a whole lot quieter about it.

My season lasted all of 3 hrs.  got my bird at 8:30 am the first day.  Yes, the weather was nice, too.
