Should be a good weekend

Postby ticklishtompro » May 11th, 2012, 11:11 pm

The birds are pretty talkative and responding well to calling. Seeing less hens so I am assuming more are on their nests. We killed a nice 2 year old this morning and my nephew miss judged the yardage and missed a real nice bird. If he was the bird I think he was he is at least a 4 year old that we call Butterball!! He walks at least another day. That bird hung up at 80 yards and we worked him for an hour. He gobbled every minute or less. He had to have gobbled 100 times, but we didn't have time to put out a decoy or I think he would have met his demise. He did put on a really nice show though so it was a good afternoon.

Going out in the morning with Brian Lovett so really looking forward to hunting with him. Hopefully the birds cooperate. The property we are going to start on has had little pressure and there have been 6-8 gobblers there consistantly. Only thing shot this year there was a bearded hen. Time for bed!!

Slow day in the woods. The birds would not gobble, hardly even any from the roost. We did see 2 toms, one was coming in till a hen came out and ran across the field and took him with her. The only thing we had close was a hen which Brian carried on a nice conversation with. He talked so nice to her she just didn't want to leave.
One surprise we found was some turkey eggs that were hatched out! We were both very surprised to see that.

Much better morning in the woods today. The birds were very fired up and I shot at a really nice longbeard, to bad the only thing that died was the sapling that I overlooked as I focused on the bird!!! WOOPS! Oh well, guess I just have to keep hunting!

Yep that's what you do. Just keep hunting. So many tags so little time.

We had better gobbling on Saturday than Sunday. Just goes to show how it can vary from spot to spot. Like charlie said, just go find another one!
