Is it a bad thing that gobblers are locked with hens right now? This early in febuary?


Whatever is going on – it has occurred before. So there’s nothing to worry about!

Gobblers started strutting and fighting for dominance more than a month ago. They are all about impressing hens and whipping other toms during this time of year.

Season opens in south Florida March 5th or so. You didn’t mention where you observed the toms, but even in the north country gobblers have started working for dominance.

Enjoy creation,
