as related in other posts, i began my SERIOUS turkey hunting in Tranquility Wildlife Area in southern ohio , in 1998. throughout the last few months just prior to season of that year i read , listened and watched as much as i could get a hold of , which really wasn't that much. i knew i was GREEN but was determined.
finally season opened and i had taken vacation time to hunt the whole first week. every day that week i worked at least one bird.
that first week of my dedication left me really ''SURPRISED BY TURKEYS'',,,,,,,,,,, surprised that they were coming in to my calls. surprised they were mostly sneaking in to where i impatiently waited and always moved too soon , but never too late to miss their retreat.
i must admit they still surprise me ,,, even when they gobble all the way to the gun.
