Still not as low as some of the years I've hunted.  And I always wind up with about the same number bagged even though I don't see as many.  Time for new boots.  Looks like I'll need em.

-38% down in northern unit is very bad news.  My bet, WNV.  Should know by the end of 2018.

Have not heard a single drum, thus far. Extremely different from the past few years. I have finally been able to position one of my older trail cams on what I am certain was a drumming stump last year. LOL, yeah, we shall see.

You cannot have a dog of leash on any public land in northern WI after April 30. Some guys do run on woodcock in the spring,but for banding purposes.  Not heard of that being done up here. Not heard a single drum around my house. Nor,a gobble! 2 days ago talking to my neighbor.  He said all his turkeys in the bird feeder have been gone since the last big snow. Another big flock normally roosts about 1/4 mile behind my house. Sittng on my back porch for the first hour of daylight every morning. Hear only song birds, and woodpeckers.  Still cannot get in the woods to open up my bear baits. Should be able to next week!

I went with a friend today on a drumming survey. He has been running this same transect for over 20 years. You make 10 stops 1 mile apart and listen for 4 minutes at each stop.  We heard 8 drumming birds and 15 gobbles. Last year his numbers were 9 & 17. Oneida County.
