    Walked a new place today that i never set foot on before. Put in about 4 hours, maybe 8 miles. Jumped a lot of deer, but didn't confirm any were bucks. I'm still finding fresh buck sign though, mostly scrapes that are freshly hit. No sheds found. We are full on green up right now. Can't see far in the woods at all. It's crazy early, like a month early.

    When I was hunting that last week of January, I had a Tom gobbling his head off about 200 yards to my south. Then shortly later a hen clucked twice about a hundred yards to the north. That Tom went straight to her and gobbled again. Though that was weird and very early.

    Just do what every other PA hunter does, come to MD for the first 2 weeks of MD season. It starts in mid April. Can always tell when the PA season is open though, all the public is empty again haha!

    Haha sounds about right, I have buddies that travel around Turkey hunting nearby states, I never joined em tho. I get after it in PA, but I’m not a big Turkey hunter.

    I'm the same. I might go turkey hunting once and awhile, but don't have a big drive to do it.

    Another 4 hours with nothing found. Then was walking a access path back to my truck. Not 100 yards from my truck and Bam! Right in the middle of the path. Go figure! 20230226_122415.jpg

    We got about 2 more feet of snow last week so I'll have to do some traveling if I want to get any shed hunting done in the near future. My current season stats:

    Miles - 21.67
    Sheds - 13

    Got another one today, it’s from a buck I had a bunch of pics of this year. Hope he sticks around.

    I'm itching to get back out. Might take some time off tomorrow and walk a bedding area and if I have time run to different property and just walk field edges.

    Went out yesterday for a quick look on some city property with no hunting allowed. Had high hopes. No luck. I'll be back at my house in MO tonight for a couple of days and hopefully will have some time to go back behind the house looking for that stud I saw back in Oct.
