Thursday hunt

Postby roughrider123 » May 6th, 2010, 2:46 pm

Tried out same bird for yesterday and walking up the dirt road he starts gobbling at 5:20. Set up on his side of the road 100 yards out and shooting good for 30yds plus. A gagle of crows sets in and starts all kind of ruckus at his gobbling, first time I witnessed that and it went on for 15 min. After they leave I hit him with some soft clucks and he answers every time. I wait till I think he's on the ground and hammer him with 3 different box calls this time and he's all hot again. This continues till 7am and now he's quiet. I give a cluck and he answers once. I figure he's moving off a bit and decide to move to the road and slide by him quietly to get in front of him. Busted again. He was still in the tree with a buddy at 7:15. They were roosted 50yds off the road and saw me sneeking along. game over. He needs a break and so do I. Striper fishing tomorrow on the Hudson river. This is sure one dead forum. Is it that bad in Pa?

Too many guys out hunting, no time to type! It will be the end of June b/4 I catch up on my to do list.
They seem to stay in the roost longer now - lot's of hens makes them know the girls will come to them - and now they're educated it will be even tougher.
Good luck, change tactics, change calls, change location, change underwear, change............. ????
Keep at it, I think it will only get better as the season proceeds.
