MERIDIAN — Spring Gobbler Update

    Gobbler activity got off to a slow start in many areas of East Mississippi and where I have been hunting, things are still hard going. I had one day when I heard seven gobblers, but the birds start late and gobble only about an hour. A couple of toms appear to roost alone and hit the ground to begin their talking to attract scattered hens, traveling quickly to cover a lot of territory. This was the pattern of the fine bird I killed in 2012. Some bluebird days yield no gobbling in my hunt areas. I have heard no birds that were “hot”on the roost, and the season is flying by. Go figure.
