Went through my turkey area this morning and boy were the jakes sounding off.  It about kills me to wait another month

I'm in Central CA.  The weather is real warm all of the sudden (65-70) and the young guys were getting excited...

Has any study ever proven what triggers the gobbler's mating season?  You know, like the rut is controlled by number of hours of daylight in the deer world.  I'm wondering if the air temperature and weather conditions don't have anything to do with ole Mr. Gobbler sounding off.  Can anyone shed some daylight hours on this subject?

I've heard it is the daylight hours with turkeys also that triggers when they breed. The weather only affects how vigorously they pursue it.

I drove through the julian California area today (02-24-02) saw about 20 in one spot, one big tom and 5-6 jakes. Problem is its private land. If anyone in the San Diego area just wants to see birds, drive into Julian and its back roads, you'll see'm. I like to pratice my calling with them, then I dont distrub my hunting areas too much.
