On the other hand, a steady rain, especially a cold one, shuts gobbling down. Turkeys sit longer on the roost. What to do? Hunt open fields, like pastures and short alfalfa. In this kind of weather, turkeys would rather walk in short vegetation so that their feathers won't drag through sodden grass and underbrush. They prefer open spaces where they can see predators that might otherwise slip up on them undetected in the wet woods. Stake out a field if you know birds use it. Or move quietly, glassing open areas for birds. Once you spot them, spend a few minutes determining their line of march. Get around them, set up, and call. Be patient; they may not respond as quickly as on a nice day, but they'll come.
