Headed up to units 1/27 next weekend with my two boys. Ive never spent a lot of time chasing turkeys but I excited for the two of them on their first turkey hunt. Just wanting to see if anyone is out this weekend and how noisy the forest is. Thanks. Ill probably put this thread to the top a few times during the week. Like I said Im just a little excited.

The Coues Deer Curse is one that can not be shaken.  Once you have it you can't get rid of it, you might as well accept it your addicted

After these winds if you are going anywhere in unit 27, you better take a chain saw

They are not going very good but a week can make a big difference. 2 Saturday’s ago had some birds going decent , called in 5 gobblers together . No hens around - this weekend wind was terrible- saw hens by them selves - saw a few groups of hens with gobblers - & saw 10 gobblers together w no hens ( all long beards ) no gobbling at all .... saw 50 hens in a group w NO gobblers .... these are still “winter” groups ....so to me after spending a couple weekends chasing them - they are barely starting w a few gobblers starting to get with hens - & should get better & better each day as things turn on . Just my 2 cents ....

Just looked at underground weather for alpine, Monday Tuesday and Thursday show in the high twenties for wind. Should be interesting for that weekend than. Thx for the posts. Keep them coming.

Sounds are overated if U know where birds live. Have patience and sit all day. Killed My first bird that way while My buddy went wandering around. My bird came in silent with 2 hens. My buddy heard the shot and came back. I said I told Ya so. 25 years ago..........Good luck to all.....BOB!

Hard to hear them in the wind you could hear them pretty good Sunday.  Turkey make turkey noises year round that's how they communicate.

While maybe not ideal the wind in the forest close to the ground will be less. I wouldn't let it get you down, birds will still be out and about you just won't be able to hear gobbles much past 150 yards.

Did the youth hunt in New Mexico two weeks ago and it was bad not talking at all. Buddy was up there again last week for another hunt and just as bad and few friends in Unit 1 are saying same tough right now still all flocked up together and not talking. Plus with the fire and winds not looking good for the kids bummer...
