    That was on my list this morning, I change my original post title but it didn't carry over.

    Thanks,

    I wonder if these folks would mind if I set up a blind in their yard? :)

    They probably wouldn't mind having less turkey **** in their yard.

    Seen some nice ones shed hunting on the property the other day! The trail camera pictures have been great too. Just have to keep on playing the waiting game for now. The weather sure was spring like today with highs in the low 60's here in Michigan!

    Our season starts Saturday, I talked to the farmer where I usually hunt and he says that there have been about 30 birds on his silage pile every morning. They roost in at least 2 different trees that I have seen. When they fly down, they strut in his field for a while and head east or south depending on the wind. Mom and I are going to set up on the east, it's not supposed to be windy. This is her first year turkey hunting so she has first shot. She picked up her first bow last year Mothers Day weekend after riding along turkey hunting with me. I really hope she can tag a bird. She missed a doe last year and was pretty disappointed.

    I don't know you could wait a whole month, I'm so fired up already I may prematurely launch my arrow. Another month would be unbearable.

    Yeah it's rough. I keep seeing birds fired up when scouting, I have gone through 3 paper turkey targets shooting, I keep watching turkey hunting archery videos, you name it. I'm ready LOL.

    CJ,

    Maybe you could come out here and I could learn something!! It was a frustrating weekend. I had birds working across the field to us this morning but a hawk scattered them and it was all over. Yesterday morning I passed on a jake, and the toms decided to go the other way. Mom and I still had fun and lots of laughs were had.

    Sounds like you were close to getting it done BigHoss! How long does your season run?

    Went out this weekend and scouted my usual spots. Lots of sign and I heard a few gobbles. Things are looking good.

    BigHoss glad you got to see some birds. Nice Pic buddy. Keith and I went out Saturday morning it was 30 degrees and getting windy by the minute. We did not see any birds but heard them. By the time we left the area it was blowing 37 mph. It collapsed Keith's blind just before we left. We set up on top of the ridge where I shot my Jake last year and were really set up for a late afternoon hunt. Well we proved you can't call them up hill...lol Like I said we really were setup for the evening hunt and wanted to get our set tested out but the wind was getting real bad. We will try again next Friday and Saturday but we are going to set up down by the creek. It is a long season here in Nebraska til the end of May. Good luck to all

    Better luck next week Cal! The wind really picked up here during the day too. Fortunately we were sheltered pretty well where we were at.

    Looks like another awesome weekend coming at us! I got the OK to peel out of work a little early Friday night, I'm going to try to get into the blind for a while. If I don't get there in time to sit, at least get the blind setup for my nephew Saturday morning so we can sneak in close enough that the decoys are visible when the birds pitch down.

    Work weeks sure seem long in April and November. Then again, my production isn't very high for those 2 months either.
