Starting to hear the gobbles on my property early in the morning. The roost is not far my house.
Opening day is May 1st, good time to scout areas for deer hunting and prepare a few spots for trail cameras.

When do you have to start worrying about ticks in the woods out east?

The second you step out of your car. I've had tick out east all time of the year and since you most likely sitting on the ground your right where they want you so they can crawl on you.

This is good news. I usually only hunt em the first week or two and then move on to catching bass, which I'm much more successful with. LOL

Was watching a Tom strutting in the field yesterday. The season in my opinion should start in Mid April. Most hunters give up once all the grass is over a foot high in the fields. It becomes difficult to hunt with all the bugs and overgrowth that is common in May.
