Should be a pretty easy hunt if they stay on that routine. I currently live in Alabama and had 5 longbeards doing the same thing and once they started breaking up, I can hardly get a pic of a single bird. I did call one up for my stepdad this past Sun and it wasn't near where I was getting pics. They are super fired up here yet either. Her one bird gobble twice and another gobble once.

Re: Louisiana Gobblers
Opening day proved to be tough one, strong storms shut me down early and when I slipped back into my area I flushed turkeys off the roost an hour after daylight. Saturday afternoon I was able to call in two hens. I didn’t even hear a gobbler on Saturday. Sunday morning I heard one gobbler 800+ yards away and tried to cut the distance in half but never got him to answer me. So it was a bust for the opener. I never heard a single shot all weekend long so I guess I wasn’t the only person having a tough time. I’m headed to Texas this Friday for the opener there so I hope for better luck.

Thanks for the update...
I hunted Mississippi and called up a gobbler that hung up at 80 yards one day and just Jakes the next morning. I did get a nice trophy Timber Rattler. I hope I'm hunting Rios this weekend also! Way more vocal.

I hunted Ga this past weekend and killed two birds. Wasn't a ton of gobbling and most birds were super henned up. I was had birds within 80 yards everyday I hunted but they wouldn't leave their hens. I just found two birds that wanted to play the game I guess. One bird was a pretty decent bird super heavy 9 3/4in beard, 1 3/16 spur and 1 1/8 spur and weighed 22lbs 3oz. Other bird was just a two year old. Will be back hunting Alabama this weekend. I aint gone give all the credit to my new gobbler down calls, but I do not necessarily think I would have killed these birds without these calls sounding so realistic.
