Just curious what your thoughts are on the increase probability of a strong poult survival with the cicadas in Northern Ohio. There's none here in SW Ohio but I am seeing birds where I've never seen them before.

Found it interesting how the cicada hatch can affect the turkey population.

The last 17 yr hatch in '99 the spring harvest was ~ 14,000. Harvest in 2000 jumped to ~ 20,000. Harvest in '01 jumped again to 26,000. Harvest this spring was ~ 18,000. 2017 could set a record harvest.

According to your map I could have 2021 & 2025. I hate these things.

The lines are probably close but not exact. I drove up the Marblehead yesterday hearing them until I got to Monroeville. Didn't see or hear any north of RT 20.

They are EVERYWHERE in the cuyahoga national valley. While driving 35-45mph, with the windows closed, radio on, ac blasting, I can still hear them. All over an outdoor range in medina we shot at last week too. Had them landing on targets and in the gravel by our feet.
