The two weeks before Virginia's spring gobbler season begins, I think, is when a season is made. This is the time when scouting takes place, and I check out farms and national forest land where gobblers may be.
The first week is all about finding the gobblers, the second about determining which ones are more likely to respond to calling. Tomorrow, Saturday, I'll visit the first place on my list, some property in northern Botetourt County. I also have scheduled visits to Craig and Franklin counties in the coming days. By the opener, I should have a good idea where my chances for success are highest.
