I don't know what it means, but I was up in 8 today and the gobblers were going off. I am no expert, but if I were to guess, I'd say these warm temps are getting things fired up early. Man, they sound loud when the trees don't have leaves.

That's about the norm, G&F starts the season later in the spring so the hens can get bred. Turkeys around the country are getting fired up with some states getting ready to open the season.

it happened last year. warmer temps, sooner in the season kicked off the "romance" for the turkeys... by the time the hunts opened up, there wasn't any activity

Well, after two more visits it seems my report may be premature as it has been silent since.
I have turkey tracks all over the place, but no more sounding off. For whatever it's worth.
