I've only been twice, but on both Saturdays mine started gobbling almost an entire hour before sunrise. One morning was 100% humidity into a steam like fog and HOT, and last Saturday was low humidity, clear skies, slightly cooler and windy as all get out. I guess my birds are of the bold variety! Lucky me, I reckon.
Went out there today at noon and poked around a little bit. Still good traffic in my two normal spots. Going to do the same thing as last time, hunt one spot and try to call in, and then deer hunt that other crossing once they go quiet.
We'll see how it goes. If I shoot another one, I'd like it to be better than my last one (17-18 lb bird, 8" beard and 1" spurs).Speaking of that... I have read that beard length really doesn't necessarily correlate with age, but that spurs really do. Proble is, spurs are pretty hard to size up at distance, so if yo have a solo tom, how do you field judge other than looking at beard?
