    Default No more turkey in Evansburg?

    Its been almost 2 yrs since i got out to Evansburg for turkey. Went scouting and calling in all my old spots but i didnt hear anything and saw no signs of turkey. Have they left the area? Is french creek just as bad?

    I live near the edge of French Creek State Park and see turkeys here on occasion. Two days ago was one of those occasions but a few hens was all I saw, they were near a tree line though so there could have been more out of sight. I always felt like they are around and visible until hunting season, then they disappear as if they know.
    If it ain't broke it ain't mine.

    I'm planning on going to Evansburg for spring turkey so I hope you're wrong. Back in the fall near the creek I saw footprints and I saw a flock driving by a month or so ago.

    Today was youth day. My neighbors daughter got herself a nice Tom this morning. The birds around here have been a little on the quiet side.

    I like the Shady Brook but Jenny-O's runs a close second.

    It was always my impression that turkey season comes too late. Once the geese move in you can forget about finding turkeys.

    Thats all i saw. A flock of geese and a few times they honked when i did a pan call. Hoping turkeys were quiet from the rain. Ill try my usual spots then i guess if theres nothing ill be heading west.

    Does anyone have insight into whether Nockamixon State Park / Gameland 157 would be a better turkey spot than Evansburg? It's an extra 25 minute drive for me so wondering if it would be worth it to check out if I don't fill my tag at Evansburg first.
