Went down this weekend to try and find some turkeys, but unfortunately the turkeys outsmarted us! It was bone dry out there! Lots of animals on water and feed. We set up two water stations to help
With the drought. Axis are showing up thick

I’m fairly certain the vast majority went south of 10 and vast majority of that went south of 189.

Iím also north of 10 at exit 420. Woke up this morning to pictures showing the ground is wet. Not much, but will take anything we can get at this point and fingers crossed that we get a good dowsing between this afternoon and Tuesday.

Donít think thatís a chance. We need rain for extended periods from February- April to push extensive growth. Itís been too dry for too long for that to happen now.

Congrats on the kills Bisch! Kids sports and life has been keeping us from spending much time out there this Spring. We are covered up with Axis and **** pigs. My brother went out last weekend to top off feeders and make sure they had water. He said it was bone dry. Weather station at the camp said we got 3/4" of rain. Finally enough for water to stand under the feeders.

We didn't hear many 2 weeks ago but managed to call in 2 the first evening and one the next morning. Saw some jakes and hens too. The morning we left they were gobbling in every direction of course! I wish they didn't change the season to the N zone.

Turkeys in our area are pretty much done breeding by end of March, if not earlier. For the life of me I have no idea why the state moved opening day of spring turkey even further back this year? It sucks because the last really good day of hunting has been the opening of youth season in years past and then pretty much dead beyond that.

Yep! Usually around valentines day they show up strutting on cameras and by the end of March get harder to find! Our best trips in the past have been on opening weekend.

We've got several roosts around our lease where we'd normally see 50-100 Turkeys each day. Now, most of the Hens are nesting and we're lucky to see one or two hens a day. I'm going to write the state soon, although I don't know how much good it will do. I'm planning on including trail camera pics to back up my remarks stating that by the end of March, Turkeys are already bred and nesting.

I have no idea how the nesting will be with zero cover and insects
Maybe more rain is coming to solve it?

Just got home from the rancho. Looks like we got pretty good rain there was still lots of water from the rains last week. Axis have been oddly scarce, but Iím guessing itís due to the new growth with all this rain. WT bucks are starting to show some bone. Protein feeders all topped off with Double Down ready for the growing season!
