Hope its a better Spring season than last year, to dang wet. Good luck to everybody and lets see the first pics. There were plenty during Deer season so hope they hung around. Pretty nasty winter so far and dosnt bode well for the hatch, but then again last year with a record hatch and mild winter was supposed to be GREAT and what a bummer.

Haven't seen a density Map. But my sis and brother n law have been seeing quite a few. I've been thinking in heading up to toss out some corn or soy beans for them. Last year we seen tons of them. But only a couple dumb young ones came in close enough. The big Toms were smart enough to stay out of range. LOL

Seen quite a few big boys struct more stuff monday down in LaGrange Georgia area.
So after I park the Sprinter van after dropping my load ,I broke out the turkey diaphragm calls. Weather was nice and warm ,windows down and the look on peoples faces when they couldn't figure out where that turkey sound was coming from.
I figure I might as well practice will I set. :)

Well, went down to pasture. Saw a big jake and three hens, no gobblers. Will keep trying though, hearing gobbling everywhere. Just can't seem to coax em out.
