18 days until......

Just 18 days before spring gobbler season opens in the greenest state in the land of the free. I am getting anxious because the jakes are all ready starting to strut. I have a new 20ga muzzle loading shotgun that I am dying to try on them.....Robin

    Love Turkey season, yes it is spring time. I am looking forward to your experience with the muzzle loading shotgun and how it does taking turkey. Good luck and make it a big gobbler.

    Our big winter flocks are starting to break up, a few more near 80 degree days and we'll have turkeys all over the place...My biggest concern is that the gobblers will be all henned up by the time season opens...makes for a much tougher season if you're looking for a long beard...

    Our season doesn't open until the end of April and with the weather we've been having I'm anticipating a bad season.
    The trees will be leafing out a month early I hate that part the most.
    Also I think the breading will be done and over.

    Way to go Hawken go get em

    Everything here is way ahead of schedule...I'm beginning to think the season will be over before the season opens...I've got gobblers strutting in the south pasture already, nearly a month before the season opens...going to be a hard season...

    Still enjoying the trip of a lifetime and making the best of what I have.....
