I just got back from Wis last night so please forgive my delayed response.
I would like to thank Scott for organizing the hunt and putting up with us all. He did a great job.
I did kill a jake on the last evening hunt I was on...the 3rd time one was in range that evening was just too much.
Then I missed a tom I called in the next morning...boy that one hurt! Oh well, I want revenge now so I may be back some time.
I thought the hunting was fairly good. There were birds around and gobbling was heard most mornings although the birds were tough to call. For me the hunt was somewhat typical of hunting a new (for me) area. Takes a while to figure things out and then I usually get at least close to killing a bird in a 5-day hunt. And I certainly did have my opportunity on this hunt.
The best part for me was coming away with some great new turkey knowledge. I learned several things, some things from good turkey hunters and some things from the birds themselves and the habitat type they hung out in. I usually hunt big woods and this was more small woods with fields scattered here and there.
And a big thanks to Brian Lovett for taking time out of his busy day (during turkey season no less) to visit with us. It was great to meet Brian and share a lunch with him and yap about turkeys. His father carves duck decoys, that was pretty cool to learn.
Anyways thanks to Scott, Jeff, Randy, Scott, Shane, and Brian. It was great to meet you and experience some of this "turkey thing" we do and love so much.
