I'm headed out in the morning. Have a few nice birds targeted. The birds have not been as willing to come into my set up so tomorrow I will be busting out my strutting jake and hen.
Seems like May 1st is taking for ever to get here. Any luck yet? I had a gobbler in my yard yesterday hopefully I can pattern him but I've got a couple honey holes ready to go. Ready to get out there for sure though!
Still a big, fat turkey egg for me. No luck.....
Well guys my season is over down here in florida. Had a strange one. Couldn't get a Tom within bow range for some reason. Went out on Sunday for the last day of the season. It came down to running and gunning with the 12 gauge. Got a nice 20.5lbs Tom. Sat all morning with the bow in hand and nothing. Sorry guys!
Bummer! At least you got one with the boomstick though... My season has yet to open...7 more days- I can't wait. I really hope i get to put one down this year!
My season starts tomorrow i roosted 6 nice Toms and a few Jakes two days ago, i recently picked up a property with over 60 birds on it (huge farm). Ill be roosting them tonight and getting the Blind set up and ready for the morning, if all goes well ill have a bird down by 6am EST. All on film for everyones viewing pleasure! Wish me luck talk to ya'll tomorrow morning!
Good luck!! Im going to do a little scouting this weekend as well before my season starts up on monday.
Well I couldn't get them within range this morning, lots of noise though, they were gobbling up a storm I just couldn't pull em in. Tomorrow should be better I have a solid game plan, on a lighter note my uncle was shotgun hunting 500 yards away a put the smack down on a nice Tom 9inch beard, 1 inch spurs and about 24lbs. Good luck! We gotta get on the board!
I was so close to getting us on the board
Check out the thread I made of my hunt:
Its been a tough season here in NY the temps were in the 70-80s all the first week and now they are back into the 20's and 30's we got snow last night! ive seen tons of birds but just cant seem to seal the deal just yet. ive been panning through some big woods for open prairies and I think ive got a no fail spot all picked out, ive seen some tracks in there and ive dubbed the target bird "T-Rex" hoping he makes a mistake and the stars align just right... if he does my Black Eagle Carnivores will be eating well!
been really close to sealing the deal a few times yet no dice. Heres the link to the video I made. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mKfNY2rcS-k

Thanks ill be back at it again in the morning good luck guys we need to get on the board lol
