I hunted the opener Saturday up on Mt. Laguna and I've been up scouting a couple times prior. I have yet to see/hear any birds. Covered a decent grip of land, much of which I've seen plenty of birds on over the years. I'm wondering if they are still grouped up? Haven't seen anything posted yet and I'm curious if anybody up on the hill has gotten eyes or ears on any birds. Of course we ran into plenty of deer!

The bird population is way down! The 5 year drought has really taken a toll on the turkeys. All the places you use to see them on private property are even dried up!

Yeah, I know its been tough on the birds, I also know there are still some there. Its early, I think there's a chance they haven't fully busted up yet? Gonna hit it tomorrow. Trying to shoot one with a bow has proved to be just this side of impossible for me on public land. I've come close a ton of times, still no cigar!
