Talking Turkey

Spring turkey season opens tomorrow, 4/9, in Montana. Old man winter is back for an encore - a couple of inches of fresh snow fell overnight in the Gallatin Valley. If the winter conditions persist into tomorrow, it should make for a productive morning of turkey hunting.

The gobblers are responding to calling, and the cold conditions are keeping them in their tree top roosts late into the morning. I watched a sizable flock this morning from first light until about 7:30am - the majority of the birds didn't hit the ground until well after 7:00am - a full half hour later than usual.

For those getting out tomorrow: best of luck and enjoy the time afield.
