Hard to believe the season is roughly only a month out - i've actually been noticing Tom's breaking away from the flocks in my area. No strutting or gobbling thus far that I have seen. Any one else?
Fox valley area
I heard quite a few gobblers sounding off in the backyard this morning as I was leaving for work.. haven't seen any in a while - but they are moving in... they tend to show up in the yard right around breeding season.
Have been hearing a steady dose of gobbling in the mornings. They are not moving much conserving energy and eating buds and cones and farm waste. Had some strutting after they ate yesterday on the neighbors land. The group of toms I saw regularly before all this weather I was worried would not make it but they are all still alive as of yesterday.
