ABOUT GOBBLER WATCH
Gobbler Watch is an interactive site that is focused on turkey hunting – more specifically – we are focused on learning what the turkeys are doing right now so we can hunt them in the most effective way each day. You will make new friends and share photos and stories of hunts along the way, but the real purpose of Gobbler Watch is to help us all become more successful turkey hunters.
HERE IS HOW IT WORKS:
The heart and soul of Gobbler Watch is the “Activity Report”. You access it by clicking the “Post Something” box and then clicking “Add Activity”.
Have a name for each of your hunt sites (only you will see them) and be very precise when entering the turkey activity you saw or heard at each site. The data is not only grouped to help everyone see developing trends in behavior, but it is also kept separate so you can go to the “My Trends” page and analyze your own data. The more accurately you enter your sightings, the better this tool will predict where and how you should be hunting each day.
We pull all the weather, moon phase and barometric data into the database for the zip code you enter for each site.
Soon, this data is going to make us much better at predicting where to hunt given specific dates and conditions. As the database continues to grow, this resource will only become more valuable.
For example, you can create charts for the trailing week that compare gobbler activity to time of day, to moon phase, to temperature, etc.
