Winter turkey season
« on: January 23, 2017, 10:48:14 AM »
This past Thurs, Fri and Sat were winter turkey season here in So Md. Sat was cool 40's with light rain. I took my daughter in the morning and we didn't see or hear any birds. The rain picked up so she say let's go home. I hunted behind the house in the evening-- got wet and cold for my efforts BUT!!! My buddy shot his first winter bird on his farm about 20 mins before dark!!! It was a med size hen, he said he saw 4 Gobblers in the group but neve rgot a shot so with time running out he took the hen. I do not have a pic yet.

I've been seeing groups of 20-30 in the fields. we only have spring and fall season and it's only by draw. you have a better set-up by the sound of it

congrats to your buddy

Went hunting here in Maryland on Thursday and Saturday morning and didn't hear or see a bird. It was just great to get out in the woods again. Thursday the fog was so thick that you couldn't see very far. I'm sure the birds stayed on the roost until things cleared up. I eventually went for a walk with my GPS to check my camera at the stand. I was at 249 feet before I could even see a large barn located on the property I hunt. Not good visibility for a turkey on the ground.

We only had a spring seasonn here in my part of Md until a couple of years ago when they started this 3 day winter season. We have plenty of turfey now so I don't understand why we don't have a fall season like the western part of the state. I have to go to Pa or Va to hunt fall birds. One bonus is we don't have a draw and can kill 2 Gobblers in the spring if you don't kill one in the fall (in the western counties)
