    Thanks for the heads-up! Spring gobbler hunting season is certainly one to watch out for. The hunters are in camo, and some of the "not so good" hunters hunt and shoot at sounds. The real hunters won't be a problem; they go out before the season and scout locations to hunt away from the trails. I've seen the "other" kind sitting beside a trail, talking to his buddy on one of those Nokia push to talk phones, (with that dumb sound they made), and telling him that "he thought he heard something, and was going to check it out". Wear bright colors!

    I've seen turkey blinds close to several trails (there are 2 or 3 on New Blue, 1 or 2 on Skink, one near the current work being done on the blue trail). I'm not sure if they are actively being used, they've been around for a while, but I suspect they are getting some use.

    My opinion is to let the hunter have their mornings during the turkey season, especially on Saturdays. It is only a half day for the spring season.
