Default Hunters in MO. Quick question.

Hitting the woods this weekend in Western MO. I was wondering if any MO hunters could report on what the birds are doing in their areas. Just interested to see what stage of the breeding season they might be in.

Thanks and good luck guys!

I hunted opening morning in North western Missouri and the birds were active. I killed opening morning. I hunted with my buddy on his second set and the toms seemed henned up. He did kill the second day but the morning hunt the toms were again henned up. He killed at 10:45 and the tom just had one hen with him. So I say they are henned up.

I'm hunting in south central Mo, and the birds are henned up but get in their face and they will play. My son and myself missed one opening morning. I missed a longbeard and he missed a jake. All were in the same flock, called them in 3 times but the third time they didn't want to play. They will work if you keep after it. The gobbling is getting better here in the southern part.

I got some buddies that all killed in a 2 day span around 9. Said they got hemmed up then break away from hens when hens went to feed or nest.

I killed my bird opening day at 12:42. On a couple of the farms I hunt the gobblers are grouped and others have a few gobblers with 1-3 hens. Weather hasn't been great but should be awesome by mid week.

Well sounds good for me considering I've been sick and Doctor told me to stay out of the woods until next week.
