RE: TOUGH YEAR
Spring came late. Gobblers stayed together much later and were hened up later. The last week was AWESOME.......
The second thing making it tough is the second tag.....Used to be that by the middle of the second week almost everyone is out of the woods. Now those guys who are serious, or good, or lucky enough to bag early, are back out there.
That is one of the biggest reasons I am against the second tag. The least enjoyable part of spring gobbler is hunter interference, and this tag effectively doubles it (in regard to certain areas).
Better too far back, than too far forward.
