    Yesterday I watched a big tom strutting for two hens in an open field and also heard one gobble way off in the woods, seems things are heating up already…

    Yesterday was a great day to see turkey. On my way to church I saw one field with 6 hens, one field with 3 jakes (one strutting) and another hillside with several toms (one strutting). They were close enough to the road that I got my video camera out and taped him for about three minutes in full strut. He looked awesome!!! I will be taking off work Tuesday the 15th and sitting on a ridge waiting for "the bearded one" to fly down.

    Yes I did. What a day. Once we got on the ridge yesterday morning and starting using the hoot owl we heard at least 8 different birds. It felt like we were surrounded. Just as we were setting up, some other hunters came through the woods talking loudly. I think they were turkey hunting but they obviously didnt know what was going on. We changed our setup and had two hot gobblers at about 150 yards. Next thing we know a hen flies down, starts clucking, and goes right to them. We changed location and had three hens come out. Changed location again and had a tom come running in to about 50 yards, but then he came to a screeching halt. He turned around and walked away. I still dont know what happened. After around 10:00 everything shutup. We didnt hear a gobble the rest of the day. I dont know if it got too hot for them or what, but it was unbelieveable. There were 3 of us hunting. One person actually ran the video camera. We were able to get 4 deer on video, but no turkey. I am going again on Friday hopefully better luck next time.

    Sounds like you had an exciting hunt even if you didn’t bag one…I guess that’s why they call it hunting and not killing…I enjoy just getting outdoors even if I don’t harvest any game…I will not get to hunt until Saturday I have a couple buddies coming in from out of town and I am taking them to my farm I am not even taking my gun I will do the calling for them and will get just as much enjoyment out of one of them getting a bird…we will hunt an open field where I know turkeys will come to strut, I have a ground blind built and last year I hunted two mornings and killed two toms both weighting 22lbs. so I expect one or both of my buddies to tag Saturday…it is nice to hunt where you don’t have any pressure…will let you know how we do…good luck and let me know how you do…

    Friday: Heard gobblers all day, but seemed to play ping pong all day with them. They would always be were we just left. Probably need to sit still longer. I think they are still henned up. Hens havent started going to nest yet where I lilve.




    Saturday: Had two gobblers on the roost at 100 yards. Had a hen in the field. They flew down and went the opposite way. Gobbled all day. At 9:30 we had a jake fly from a hillside appr. 200 yards and land beside our hen decoy. He started prancing around like he wanted to dance, then he felt the power of the 12 guage.
