From what I've seen in the past, they don't like it, especially heavy rain. If it's raining hard at all, they will simply just stand around and move very little. No feeding, no strutting, just hangin' out.
A government big enough to give you everything you want, is big enough to take away everything you have.
agreed, to a degree. I have found that the turkeys will continue to go out in the fields during a misty to light rain, but if its a downpour, the above stated is correct. They may not even come out of the roost. But if there is one thing they like less, It's the wind. Trust me.
In a light rain, they will feed and generally follow their normal patterns. If it is a heavy rain, they are likely to stay on the roost till the rain stops or slacks off. If they are on the ground and heavy rain starts they will generally just stand or hunker down under the canopy of the timber.
The best of luck in all your hunting endeavors!!!
I find fields are a hot spot when the rain lets up. If it's pouring though, they'll be hiding out. And if it pours in the AM before fly down and continues, they'll stay on the roost. I found that out the other day...
