Default PA turkeys

whats going on with the turkey sightins & actvity for the PA turkeys? I will be hunting in 3C WMU in the Frendsville, Forest Lake area I know here in Ct I have not seen or heard alot of birds yet. Which I think is strange with such a milder winter I thought the would be hot to trot by now. Any sightins happening ?

How was the mast crop in your area? The areas I hunt are usually teaming with turkeys. But this year there were absolutely no acorns to speak of. All the game move elsewhere. No turkey, a couple deer, and no bear. But they should return when the food comes back.

they moved to my yard .i had 5 bucks in my yard near you.
a lot of so called BIG TIME HUNTERS shot their bucks behind their homes with crossbow this year in dark of mornings baited in with apples.
oh, i forget, the 4 year olds shot the bucks, they are such great hunters these kids today.

Saw the first gobbler last morning. Beard was 8-9 ish and spurs looked over an inch from what I could see through the binocs.

They feed through the front of our property fairly regular. Poults should be in tow with the hens soon.
