We got the following information from John Hanks, Private Land Biologist Supervisor for the North Mississippi Alluvial Valley area with the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries. It gives an overview summary of what’s been going on in our area of north Louisiana from field reports:
“The first weeks of the season were fair to good. Last week the reports were not as good but, we did have some bad weather days. Mornings that are hot and muggy even if there is no wind are usually not good gobbling mornings. Hens should be starting to nest this week. That should have gobblers responding more to calls. However, the weather man has rain predicted for the next several days and we will just have to see if he is right or not.”
Things are getting right for taking gobblers when the weather cooperates. One thing’s for sure: You gotta go to get one. Be safe out there.
