Default RE: turkeys in the rain

Our season here in Missouri has been tough. High winds 15-30 mph and heavy rains have been hard hunting.I am hunting in the woods where a few big one roost and on our opener on 4/20 I had one lonesome gobbler I could hear faintly in the wind. I used my crystal call and he did come in butI could not keep him there in the wind. Going home, it was raining and out in the fields I saw several Toms acting like it was no big deal and they were feeding just fine. We are only allowed to hunt in the spring until 1:00pm which is strange but in the fall we can hunt til dark for these birds. Something DNR has had for a long time. I guess that's why we have around 400,000 birds in this state according to their recent estimates.
