I not an expert but from my experience they will still be there. Unless something forces them out of the area.
I've hunted this one place for a few years now and every year (so far) the turkeys have roosted and travel in the same area. I betting/planning on it agin this year too.
I have seen the turky's strutting out in a small field a couple of evenings, but i can only hunt tell noon hear in new york , would they be there in the morning or is that just a spot they go before they fly up to there roost for the night ?
owl hoot them in the evening, then again in early am. last weekend was youth season in ny, my son had a blast and got his first turkey on sunday. a jake, but the rule is no more jakes! now he has to work for them.
I hunted the first three days of the season. Saw hens each day but only heard two toms from a distance. I hunt state land and am limited to land that is not always the best. Had fun though and also saw deer each day. I will be going out a couple of times before the end of the season.
All of us, at one time or another have gone on a hunting trip and had what we call “Blue Bird” weather. Warm evenings and almost hot days. We hunt in our t-shirts and enjoy the sunshine. We are way up in the mountains and have a whole week to hunt. How could it get any better?
That is, until we score on that big buck or bull. We work to get it out of the field and skinned as quickly as possible to cool it down. But try as we might, we just can’t get...
