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

Brent, as soon as you put a turkey tag in your pocket you’ll stand out like a sore thumb. They truly do have incredible vision and awareness, but that seems to get trumped by a 6th sense of knowing when they’re being hunted.

I usually get a fall turkey tag just in case when bowhunting. I swear they pick me out the second I think about drawing back.

Turkeys do have great vision. Movement is what spooks them far more than color or appearance. Somewhat sensitive to noise also.

I have a question (coming from a guy who doesn’t turkey hunt)

I posted this a few years back as well, but couldn’t find it. 

I’ve always heard that turkey’s have great vision, and how important being camouflaged is. 

The above said, I can’t tell you how many turkeys I’ve seen from tree stands over the years, wearing blaze orange from head to toe. I’ve had some turkeys walk directly under my stand, which leads to to think that turkeys don’t look up (or they don’t care much about color.)

Given how many turkeys I’ve seen over the years from tree stands, it would seem like sitting in a tree would be the way to go if a guy was looking for a turkey.

Saw 2 toms fanned out for a hen today. They don't get it.

I saw one strutting in front of a bunch of hen's a week ago too. Seems late.

I’ve never seen it personally, but I’ve heard they do (somewhat) strut year round.  That said, I have heard them gobble in June.  It was some dense valley fog on an otherwise sunny morning.

In 4 separate locations this past weekend I saw a strutting Tom with 2-5 hens. Thought that was odd for the time of year and in multiple locations too.
