Well the spring turkey season opened with an unwelcome downpour. I hope you got your bird before you got soaked. The rains sure made it quiet in the woods. One thing I've learned over the years is that when it is raining, the turkeys like to take to the fields. It seems their survival instinct tells them that the predators have a good chance of sneaking up on them in the quiet, wet woods. So they take to assembling in the fields feeding and displaying there. With their near 360-degree vision, they are not as easy a target for foxes and coyotes when they are in the open. Well, we've got the whole month ahead of us and surely some nice, warm, sunny days afield.
