The spring gobbler season opened Monday, April 23, 2012. For Randolph and Pocahontas Counties, the weather was something to be desired. While Elkins only got a light dusting of snow, in other areas of these counties things were quite different. One person told me that Cherry Fork in northern Randolph County got 4-5 inches of the white stuff. The same could also be said for the Huttonsville and Valley Head Areas. Another person told me that Slaty Fork in Pocahontas County got 6-8 inches of snow. Anyone wanting to be outdoors to call and hunt spring gobblers in that kind of weather is simply wasting his time.
