Went out to the Lease yesterday to see what sign I could find, look for deer sheds, and pull downed limbs off the roads & trails that came down during winter storms (so it will be easier to get around once Turkey season rolls around). I found no sheds, but in the process of clearing one of the trails, I jumped a hen that I (unknowingly) got pretty close to before she flew. Saw a handful of diving ducks on the pond, and on my way back toward the truck, I saw two huge Gobblers traveling together going from the cutover into the woods. I hope they are around come the hunting season as either one would be worthy of a notched tag.
The Landowner said he saw a flock of 20+ turkeys crossing the powerlines a couple of days ago. All too far to see beards.
I swear, I could be packed & ready to go hunting in about half an hour.
Luck Counts, good or bad
