    Thursday May 1 is opening day for me. Can't wait! Have to work so I'll only be out for an hour and a half but every minute counts.

    Set up the ground blind on the clover plot this evening. Two gobblers on the hillside above me sounding off in the roost. Hope they are there three days from now. Good luck everyone!

    Went out opening day started calling and found out the toms are henned up. They came in to 50 yards but no closer. Was repeating every call the hen made but couldnt fire her up so they turned around. Next and last try is the weekend- crossing my fingers.

    In the blind for about 30 min now, sprinkling out 38 degrees cloudy. First time out. Have the Bear Lights Out, 3 Beman arrows and decoys set up at 10 yds. I've seen lots of Toms within 200 yds over the last few days, so they are here. So just a matter of getting one in range, but isn't that always the issue. Beautiful morning, good to be in the woods!

    I had three long beards come in and I shot the first one to give me an open shot. He scored 68.50
