Toms Gobbling

Going to start scouting Turkey soon and just wondering if they have started gobbling yet or is it still a little early in the game.?

The wintering groups are starting to split up! I’ve been hearing gobbles for a week or so now. I’ve also seen a few jakes out strutting for the ladies already and with the warm weather continuing to move in. It shouldn’t be long before the old boys are joining in.

I did a turkey clinic in Redwood Falls on the 17th and one of the guys told me he's seeing birds in that area strutting and gobbling already. It won't be long now. Can't wait until April 28th.

I was out in the woods this morning gather sap but wasn't out there long enough to hear any birds, maybe saturday I will have to get out there alittle early to hear some on the roost.

The trip to ND was pretty good except for all the snowcover. Last fall we didnt see or hear much for turkeys but boy did we see them that weekend. Yes, my hearing is good but my wife say selective. smile.gif

      Most of our fish came on minnows under bobbers. I spooked countless fish with even subtle jigging.

      I never made it out Monday was too tired from fishing Friday - sunday didn't feel like getting up early

      Hey, Here a quick update on actual ice thickness or snow cover on trout. 14 inchs of ice pressure ridge out there. if you are  on a snowmobile if traveling fast on it watch for it. Truck or car i do not recommend on trout with pressure ridge. And yes i have been on the whitefish chain this year in truck. just not on trout. just my 2 cents

      Thanks for the info everyone. And Borch that is good to know too.  I try to spend 2-3 hours looking on cedar each trip, but It's a lot of water to break down , and having only been out hardwater cattin 6 times so far I still have a lot to learn.  Generally I spend a lot of my 3 hours losing confidence and then wind up at the meth hole to catch a few .  Putting in the work is what makes it so fun once it all comes together though!
