Turkeys and cooler weather

Posted this in the Rocky Mtn Section, thought I might get some good advice here too... Leaving this afternoon for some camping and turkey hunting. The weather is a little cooler here in Colorado than it has been in the last week, likely to be in the 40-50 degree range where I am going. Possibly some rain off and on, maybe some snow at higher elevation. Can anyone tell me how the turkeys are likely to react to this cooler weather?

Re: Turkeys and cooler weather

Have been doing some scouting in Idaho and it seems not to be affecting them too much. We had some cooler weather last week and I saw about a dozen birds down low. Later that week, we went into an area where the snow was melted on the one side and covered on the other. We decided to take the no snow route and when we got to the top we were able to call in a Tom, but he was also pretty low at first. Later that day we went across the way to the snow side and didn't find any birds, but there were tons of turkey tracks all throughout the shaded snow areas. Hope this helps, good luck.

Re: Turkeys and cooler weather

I live in upstate new york and there are allot of days when it is cold like that, but i found that if it is just cold, but is still clear out, the only difference will be what time they fly down from there roost, iv even heard toms gobbling away during a snowstorm
