I can just picture flocks of decoys flying thru public hunting areas. Season is month long, and the lack of rain is not sparking any morel growth. besides, in NE OHIO, the snow will be hiding the morels.
If your really desperate, hit a grocery store for a butterball.
Having a little breakfast before heading out the door. The turkeys do not roost on my place but rather in the next woodlot over. They usually do not show up until more like 7-7:30am so no need to rush out in the dark. When I went outside to walk the dogs, I saw the guys that hunt across the road driving back in their truck. Nice and early because they are going into a roost area.
Weather right now is breezy and around 40 degrees. Snow has not started yet. Would be nice if it held off until late morning, but I doubt that will be the case.
They definitely were quieter this morning than usual. Had an opportunity to shoot one at 50 yards just after he flew down. Decided otherwise. Heard maybe 4 gobbles from him. Didn't hear another bird anywhere
