Mine goes like this!
I have hunted for the most part of my life. And I know they area I hunt in very well and where the game tend to hang out. The first year i got into Spring turkey hunting was kinda by accident. My hunting buddy and I had started to spend as much time hunting as we could, (probably to get away from the wives, LOL) So it was the first day of spring turkey and we figured we would hit the woods. We went across from my Dads place into thw woods on a peice of ground owned by their neighbor. Aside from a handful of people the owner would alow to hunt there we were the only ones who had regular access to this area. My buddy hit a box call and a gobbler roared back. I was in love with turkey hunting at that moment! We went up the hill torward the bird. Fired him up a couple more times on the way. We went to a tree stand on the top of the property and hit the box again. The bird was heading our way. Then, He took off. We were confused. then we saw why. Two hunters in full camo got up about 150 yeards away and headed in our direction. We got out of the tree stand and waited. The guys walked over and looked at my buddy and asked who he was. He told him his name and the one guy was on his cell with the property owner before I could say a word. The property owner knew my buddy by his nick name so he did no recognize the name they gave and was on his way over. when the guy got off the phone and asked my name I told him and all the color left his face. The property owner had told the guys that if they saw me hunting up there that thay had to move elsewhere cause I help take care of the property. The owner got there and saw us and just looked a t the guys. Now. i felt bad for screwing up there hunt. But by now they had a bit of an attitude about us. I told the guys we would goelsewhere to hunt so not to disturb them. The guys were not familier with the area and I told them that I knew the turkey usually would travel the one end of the property. They got a smart a$$ look to them and said they were going to the other end. The owner looked at them and told them " These guys hunt here all the time and know where the game are, you might want to listen to them!" But they chose to go to the area they had said. Now here we are with game jakets with orange on them, blue jeans, and only one call between the two of us. These guys looked like they stepped out of a hunting video. I felt like I did niot even belong in the woods! So we went our seperate ways. About 20 minutes later I had my first turkey! A 19 lb. tom with a 6 inch beard. Got him right where I told the other guys to go. The property owner stopoped at my Dads as I was showing Dad the bird I got. He laughed and said "Well, I guess those guys should have listend to ya". After that I ended up getting videos and camo and everything else I could for turkey hunting learning what I could. The property owner told those guys about me getting the turkey right where I told them to go and they got a little disgusted about it. LOL!
If it gobbles,runs on gas, or is married to you it will give you trouble!
