Weather Will Play a Big Part in Turkey Opener!

Eight more days till turkey opener and I’m the “least” excited I’ve ever been!  One of the largest Spring storms to ever hit the state of Michigan is pounding the northern woods with rain, snow, ice, and high winds!  For three days this onslaught is forcast for my favorite turkey hunting grounds!  I do not like hunting in the snow for a bird (turkey) that loves to strut in the sunshine and look for a pretty lady!

With the ice, wind and heavy snow I could loose power or have trees down all over my property!  The forecast for this upcoming week is one of gloom and doom also!  Usually the 1st hunt for turkey season is your best, but I’m thinking those birds may wait awhile to get into the swing of things looking for a hen.  In years past I’ve gone with the month long 3rd. hunt which may turn out to be the best chance to get a bird.

Oh well not much anyone can do about that!  I just hope the snow is melted by the 23rd. and I don’t have to plow my driveway to get into my place.

Mike
