Default Toms are starting to Gobble !

The last two mornings, there have been Toms gobbling across the field from our house. Seems about 2 to 3 weeks earlier than normal... Might just be a dandy good Spring Turkey season.

Doc,
You gotta stop 'em. I don't want them to be gobbled out by the time I get over there for opening weekend.

Now Doc, have you ever known Wayne to miss a turkey hunt? He'll be around, for moral support if nothing else. Besides, he's our main most field tester, and we've got some new stuff to throw at those birds this year. Combine our new calls and a little Southernese striker action, and there won't be a tom within earshot that'll be safe.

Here's a pic that I just took out of our front window (6:45 AM). None of these birds will be "shootable", 'cause they are just a flock of Hens and Juveniles, but the birds are thick.

Man, with the unseasonablly warm weather we've been having in Washington State, I've been concerned about the season coming before it even starts!

DocE and Wayne...are the Toms gobbling hard?

Bldhound and I are coming that way Friday morning to meet with Tim at Clark's All-sport about getting calls in the store. Maybe we will get to hear some turkey talk before we go. I'd love to hear one or two sound off just to get my juices flowing. I just hope they don't heat up early and play out before season comes. Nothing like hunting hush-mouthed toms after the peak of breeding. Tough doesn't begin to describe it.
