The turkey hunting thread is dead this year!
« on: April 13, 2017, 10:01:40 AM »
Anybody going out this weekend? Haven't seen half of the usual traffic on the forum this year. Im heading to the NE right now. My intel up there, says the birds are still bunched up and low. Will be there until Tuesday. Hope to see some fellow Hunt WA members up there. Good luck!
 What are your plans???

I don't think I'll make it out Saturday but might try a run sunday or Monday. Birds have been pretty quiet with this cold and wet we have been getting. I am hoping it warms up and the birds start lighting up more around here.

Good luck! That would be something to have your first be a WA Eastern. If you decide you need help with that, feel free to reach out to me. I'm to the point I have given up on the Eastern.

I was thinking the same thing... Things are quiet here for opening weekend! We patterned the guns last weekend. I forgot how much those magnum rounds kick!

We'll be near Roslyn for Easter weekend with family, but planning to sneak out for scouting or hunting. Then during the week we'll be visiting Rick at Buck Canyon Lodge. I need to get away from work for a while. :tup:

They have been gobbling hard all week from the roost. Starting to get real quite after fly down, a week ago they were gobbling after fly down.
