    It seems the birds have been hunted to hell on my piece of land and have shut up for the most part. I have not been able to get a peep out of one in over a week. This morning yielded no success whatsoever, woods seemed dead besides songbirds.

    Turkeys win! Worked a Tom on Sat. he came in to 50 yds. No further, never saw his beard, he only half strutted, then walked off. Went back yesterday, saw people tracks, someone bumped them out to different roost. Worked 2 Toms , never got closer then 80 yds, hen walked off they followed. Its ambush season now, birds too pressured, not my idea of hunting them.
