Had a 12" snow in late May. Wondering if that killed off the local little ones. So far have not seen my first baby turkey of the year here. Seems odd.

Been seeing a pair of hens fairly often, one has 3 poults, the other 2. Occasionally see two or three others with none.

Piedmont of South Carolina here. Have seen as many hens and poults this summer as i’ve Ever seen. Fingers crossed the population is on the rebound. Last spring was good after a couple of down years.

Here in Indiana, I saw 2 hens with 12-15 little ones in tow. We have had a wash-out spring this year, but it doesn't seemed to have affected them very much.

JamesJr,
I’m a little North of you, but I think we came out a little better concerning the hatch. We’ve been working on food plots here for about two weeks so I’ve spent a lot of time in the woods and field edges lately. I have seen several hens with poults of all different sizes and many turkeys in general. They may be making a comeback here after a few down years.


If we live long enough, we have regrets...and the regrets that nag at us the most are the ones in which we know we had a choice.

Saw my first little ones of the year today. They were about half grown, and not close to home. I still haven't seen any here at home, although most of the farm is in corn and beans, and I couldn't see them anyway. I'm hoping it's just a case of me not seeing any, rather than there not being any, although I have had turkeys on trail cam, hens and gobblers, but no little ones.
