Virginia 2019
« on: March 06, 2019, 09:25:00 PM »
Nice to be alive and preparing for another Spring season. Had a couple warm days last week and sure enough one was gobbling up on the ridge behind the house. I think he was the early bird.

Its turned back off cold and have not heard any at home or on the farm since.

With a forecasted high of 72 this Sunday, I believe the woods will start to light up here in VA.  Plan to be out Sunday and Monday AM listening.

Went out this morning it was in the low 40's with fog/mist in SWVA. Ended up hearing one bird gobble once and that was it

Sunday AM listened to two gobble off and on for about 20 minutes, heard the first gobble at 7:30AM.  It was foggy and overcast.  Getting alot of trail cam pics of these birds, still grouped up with 5 longbeards and 1 jake.

I went out Saturday and did not hear any gobble. Around 8:30 I road around and saw a bunch of birds feeding. I have seen some gobblers starting to show up in fields alone.

What area are you in Brizendine? I'm down in SWVA and they have still been pretty tight lipped for the most part so far here

Haven’t been able to get out in the mornings, due to work. I saw this flock on the way home this evening. Two gobblers in the bunch.

I was sitting in the road when I took this crappy cell phone picture.
I gave a couple of yelps, using my voice. Sounded like a sick turkey being strangled, but sure enough, one of the longbeards answered.

First gobble I’ve heard this year! C’mon April 13!

Edit: Won’t let me post the pic. Not a very good one anyway. About 25 turkeys in the flock.
