    I'm still at it, had 2 gobblers about 75-100 yards away, but hung up. Still hearing birds, so we are going to keep at it.

    Pretty sure the neighboring property killed three this morning, all within 3 min. Never heard them calling, but I was, sounded like they were coming my way and two shotgun rounds and small caliber rifle shot. So I have no clue what they massacred this morning. Pretty pissed about it.

    That sound about like my trip this morning. Talked to the neighbor he killed one about 6:30, I am not sure if it had flown down. Then had some birds working towards us and got to the property line and someone went to shooting three times. Don't know if they killed anything, but didn't hear anything after that. Heard allot of birds just couldn't close the deal.

    I only heard those two, after the shots, nothing. I have a different peppery I'll go to tomorrow morning, haven't scouted but I'm sure there are some birds. Gonna let the cameras watch today's spot and see what happens.

    Guess I'm lucky. Gun season doesn't open here for a couple weeks.

    What's everyone plans for this week's hunting?

    It's looking like maybe Wednesday morning for an hour or two at first light and Saturday for some late morning for me. I might be able to get in an evening or two as well but that won't be known until it's go time.

    Fired up a gobbler yesterday while driving. He was just walking along the highway. I honked a few times to see if that would get him away from the road. He gobbled everytime I honked. Pretty funny stuff.

    Dumbest smart bird they ever made.

    I planned to grab a couple hours of hunting this morning before work. Got to the spot where I had my blind set up and there it was, gone. The wind took it, leaving my stool and decoy behind.

    I thought I had tucked it back into the tree line far enough to be out of the wind. I thought wrong.

    That sucks. Did you find it back? That's the reason I'm not using a blind this year, wind has taken 2 even with them tied for it flipped and tore them up

    Nope, couldn't find it anywhere. I'm not surprised. We've had winds that gust to 50+ for the last few days.

    Could have been stolen too. We had a neighbor steal one off the middle of our 365 acres. Only knew he stole it when we saw it on the back of his truck.

    That thought crossed my mind as well but the fact that my chair and decoy were left behind leads me to think theft wasn't the cause. It's gone either way.

    Good luck to those that are hitting the woods this weekend. I hope we can get some points up on the board. I injured my right eye while sharpening my lawn mower blades. It's doing better now but it will be another day or two before I can shoot again.

    My bad luck should be running out pretty soon, I hope.

    Well guys I'm sorry. Should have some nice points up on the board but my arm didn't cooperate. Walked in and as I was walking by where they like to roost one gobbled. Look over and there he his 75 yards away up in a tree. Go get set up and call a little bit. By now there's 3 gobbling where he is and a few more around. Well they won't gobble to my calls. So I sit there and all of a sudden start hearing drumming. Hear this for about 5 minutes then see a fan. So I draw back and get ready and here they come. 2 huge gobblers strut in. I settle my pin and release... And the arrow hits the dirt. Dang thing hit my sleeve. Nick another and see 2 more heads. I didn't see a beard so I just sat there. Well when they came out in front of me I saw they were makes. Just before they got in woods I draw back and release. Just missing low on him. I'm done for the morning but will be back out tomorrow and this afternoon. Good luck to everybody else!
