Default Anyone know if the birds are hot yet around Freer?

Going to be guiding a guy thatís never killed a turkey and donít want to wast his time if theyíre not responding to calls.
Thanks in advance

Saw my first Tom of the year strutting today near Refugio. My buddy’s place just east of freer has plenty of birds but none of them showing interest in the ladies yet. I’d say we are not far from it though. Within the week they should be going pretty good.

I drive 624 alot, haven't seen birds strutting in the fields yet, but should be real soon.
I did hear some fire off mid day while fishing near George West.

I am off 624 between 281 and 59 and this past weekend saw over 30 toms and 120 hens on a little over 400 acres and they were definitely in full swing even got to witness a big tom mate with a bearded hen in the backyard of my camphouse. ( have the video to prove it ha ha ha)

Friend of mines son took a nice Tom on Saturday outside Freer. His grandpa said they were really henned up but came to call. Didn't have a lot of reason to gobble a lot, not having to look very hard for the girls just yet.

Don't know that I would be advertising that since the season does not open until this Saturday.

Did not know that. Thanks for pointing that out. Back when I grew up there was no early youth seasons.

No problem. Not all counties in TX have early and late youth weekends. Most of south TX does. Be sure to consult TPWD per which county you're hunting in.
