I finally got mine resized and posted it on the D&DH forum and was going to edit and post it on this one but you beat me to it. Hows the hunting in your neck of the woods?
Last week the hunting was slow, at least thru Thursday. I couldn't hunt Friday and Saturday. Yesterday I called in 6 birds, mostly gobblers I think, but the closest they would come was 60-70 yards. I think they have a strutting area just above where they came to, and I was calling them slightly downhill.
Today they gobbled on the roost, and I heard hens, but after flydown everything was silent until about 8:00 when a jake off to my left began gobbling. I called him in to about 50 yards, but he must have been spooked by the dekes. He began putting and walked off very fast. Before that a hen flew over me at treetop height. Don't know what's up with that. I suppose it could have been this jake, but I doubt it because I heard one gobbling across the road. I think he came from there.
After the jake left I looked for a way to get to the spot I think is where they meet up with the hens. I found the route I should take to get there, and I'll probably have to get in there around 4:30 to make sure I don't bust them, because I'll be pretty close -- maybe as close as 50 yards.
For two days they have been roosted in the same place, and I see no reason why they should not be there tomorrow. Of course, these are turkeys, and that means I'm probably wrong.[:)] We'll see what happens. Even though I'm not having much luck, this is way better than last week.
