Used to hear them all the time in sw Wi., Not so much anymore, if at all.

This has been my experience as well, both at home and here at camp. Both places the turkey population is way down also. We do still have three or four bats circling the yard at home every evening. Iíve been seeing that same number forever.


Eh...wot?

As a youth growing up in western WI we heard them often. I don't know if their population in that region is still the same or has declined. Where we live now for the last 48 years I can't remember ever hearing one. We live about 10 15 miles from Lake MI. The habitat here is quite different. We used to see the sky full of nigh hawks too chasing mesquitoes, two. Have not seen those here either.

I hear them every morning and evening where I live. Been here a couple of weeks now and usually lasts until late summer.

Bryce, I have Point Beach State Forest in my back yard. Alot of my friends inland claim they dont hear them by thier property. Bats really took a beating with that white nose syndrome. Don't see hardly any anymore. We also don't see many night hawks the only time I see them is when the flying ants hatch , late August into September.

during spring turkey season.
