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.
Accuracy. What an incredible way to give yourself a true advantage.
Go to your club and get a bunch of guys together - and put a target out there at 250 meters. Break out the deer rifles and see who can shoot a decent group, even off of the bench, at this distance. I think you will be shocked at how few can do it.
So - with that in mind, I recently set out to try to develop a semi-custom rifle that I could afford and that would shoot - repeatedly - at MOA.
I started with a platform that I love...
