    We had snow on the ground this morning and I seen lots of turkeys got killed today on our opening day. I had to work unfortunately. I’m taking my daughter out tomorrow morning.

    Opener 2016 - snow on the ground is fine. Hunting in falling wet snow can be downright uncomfortable. Uncomfortable yet productive morning

    So... How did it go?

    My philosophy as to the best time to hunt turkeys in the spring, is when I have time off to do so...

    Hunting turkeys is great in a light snow, or falling snow. But if you get depths of snow to say, 8"+, things start changing. Anything over a foot and they don't move near as much. Pretty much fly down to thin areas and stay there. The last two seasons I have had 24" plus of NEW snow on the ground in the first part of the season. It shuts things down very solidly. Most of the pictures I've seen posted, those snow depths don't make turkeys even blink.

    Not what some of you guys experienced during your season, but this was April 27 the opening day this year in Mass. Light, wet snow falling when this guy came in. I grumbled about the weather that day, but it's 95 degrees and humid today and I'd sure like to repeat that day again. Lol

    It’s miserable out here, too. Unusual humidity (it was 68% a couple of days ago :eek::fp) and we are supposedly in for a 10 day stretch in the 100’s. Worst day: 107. :(
