on_the_fly You will not see them were you did during deer season. Turkey change their pattern. They have a summer and winter pattern , they even change their roosting area.
Season here has been tough. This cold weather is realy holding them back.

tator Well I've been 4 times this spring and havent heard a single gobble at all. Saw them just about everytime i went deer hunting this past fall/winter. I'm just not into turkey hunting as of yet. I'll probably get "more" into it when I can take my son or when I take my nephews someday. It's frustrating to me. All my buddies talk about is bagging a nice turkey by 6am and I'll sit out there till 10am and not hear or see a thing. oh well.... I'm much better hunting deer anyways! lol

gfdeputy2 Well NH Youth weekend starts Tomorrow I am excited & nervous for my daughter want her to get her first bird worse then she does But all I can ask for is us to have a Safe & Fun weekend. The Fun part we will have as we always have fun hunting together as she loves to blame dad when the hunt goes wrong (she is usually right)
I am pretty successful when it comes to Turkey hunting just not with her LOL
well will keep you posted

gfdeputy2 I use Tri Viz sights on all my shotguns now
I got sick of mounting & unmounting the scope between hunting & skeet shooting have had them on for 2 years now & we like them a lot

on_the_fly Yeah , he has already got 4 birds, I think with the combination of, over excitment, worry of disappointing me, and my gun being a little much for him.
I think it's time to buy him his own proper sized to him gun, and put him back to the factory iron sights, think he had a little trouble with the scope on my shotgun.

gfdeputy2 OTF It happens
have had mishap after mishap with my youngest for the last 2 years
she has had tons of fun & told me the other day this year she is not worried about getting a bird just having fun like she had the last 2
she is learning she now realizes what hunting is about
& wouldn't doubt she gets her first bird this year with that kind of thinking
I think she put to much pressure on herself thinking she needed to get a bird

on_the_fly Well youth weekend was a scratch, missed two birds, one sat evening n another sun morning. The second was a nice double beard bird. He had some realy bad excitement and flinching going on. O well, can't say I've never missed a bird,? Now it's how fast he jumps back n gets more practice to work on that flinch
