I applied for this zone for the fall season. The spring part of the season I'll be in zone 14. If I get a chance to get to one of the offices perhaps I can pick up an additonal permit for zone 2 for the spring hunt.

I heard a few on opening day of trout. I'm gonna be hunting up there on saturdays with a member of my hunting club. I didn't know he had that permit until our game dinner the other night. It turns out, he is the vice pres of NWTF in New Jersey. I'm a decent turkey hunter but it can't hurt to hunt with a guy like that!!:D

State... and federal. There are plenty of WMA's and federal land up there. I actually went through there today and saw a tom and three hens.

I hunted Zone #2 both Monday and Tuesday. Monday heard lots of Gobbling and saw 3 birds,no shots. Tuesday heard 1 gobble far off. And got a nice sunburn. Bugs were fierce!!

It's supposed to rain saturday but I'm gonna go out anyway. I'm not sure what effect rain has on turkeys but I'll find out.

Rain seems to keep them down if it's a downpour. I hunted once where it was thundering and the birds were gobbling each time it thundered--pretty cool. However, when the rain came the birds disappeared.

If its raining real hard they may stay on the roost a little longer..They also seem to spend more time in the fields and open woods when its raining..I think because they have a tuff time hearing danger with the rain falling..they stay in the open and depend more on there eyesight then ears
