I'm not too sure, I feel like this year could've been a bad hatch as there weren't many poults seen around my place. I'm hoping that it's not as bad as I think though, but with the cold spring and all the rain, I'm afraid that many hens lost their eggs/poults.
Best hatch I've ever seen in my neck of the woods. I have a group of 25 turkeys that I see everytime I hunt my place is Baldwin county. Two of them are hens, the rest are jakes and jennies. 23 poults in one group suviving is awesome. I have another group of one hen and 9 jakes and jennies running around too.
this year i have seen more turkeys than ever. Every time I deer hunt I see turkeys...at least 20 each time....now I just need to learn how to call them or get someone to call them for me and my son(mainly for my son)
Looks average to below average to me. I still expect it to be a pretty good season though, we had quite a few 2yr olds left over last year from the exceptional hatch in 2008. Should be some 3yr olds this coming season.
