I'm going to have to agree, the birds here in Mo are normally tearing it up by now and I've only heard 1 bird. He gobbled twice.

I agree too.....last year our woods were green when season opened. Our dogwoods are just now about to bloom, and were almost 2 weeks in. Not much cover out there yet, gotta sit still and watch not to get too close to one on the limb.

Agreed. Up here its still snowing and the weather has no idea what it wants to do. No green to speak of at all. Last spring was nice...id take just a small chunk of spring right now. Still time left as may 1 is our opener, but i think its going to be a tough season if the weather doesnt break soon.

If some one can find spring.. Please send a day or 2 up here so we can have some idea on what the heck it looks like. Still windy today from the pounding we got from a blizzard yesterday and last night.. This stuff just wants to hang around until next year I am thinking...

I was in deep South Texas last weekend..birds were gobbling good, but still running in bachelor groups. If you called up one, you called up a dozen. I had 21 jakes in my hen decoys at one time.
