I haven't seen this covered in a topic in the past, but I know there's a lot of turkey hunters on here and given the fact that our mascot was/is/debate it a fighting gobbler I thought it might be interesting to get a conversation going. With youth weekend coming up this weekend, and the season opener next weekend, we're headed down the home stretch to my favorite hunting season and I'm getting excited.
The birds in my area of SWVA have been acting a bit strange, not seeing as many out in the open fields like they have been in years past. We had a heck of an acorn crop this year and don't know if they're still feeding on hard mast or what. Have yet to get in the woods but hoping to this weekend. With the warmer temps the fields should start greening up and the activity should pick up some.
What is everyone else seeing? What do you think about killing and eating your mascot? Is turkey pot pie considered pie for debate purposes?
