Well here's today's update. I was on the roost point before daylight, but is was so windy I could hardly hear. The wind died down shortly after light so I hit a hard cluck and series of yelps. Bingo I get a thud of a cluck back from just below me. I wait until the next calm and call and I get an answer from 3 -4 birds spread across in front of me. I think it's my gobblers. I sit tight and occasionally hear the calling of a family group off to my right. The birds called off and on and finally fell silent. I think I hear birds walking over the bank and heading above me, but nothing shows. So at 9:30 I begin moving around and I get an answer from the family group. I sit on them for a while but see nothing. So I decide to head in as I have a noon appointment to get my truck worked on. So I am chugging right along and get to where I can see my truck, so start taking of my head net, gloves, ect. Then my eye catches movement, yep you guessed it the three long beards are scratching up the woods 75 yards from my truck. Of course before I can dive for cover they bust me, so i rush them and send them in three directions. I set up and wait an hour But never heard or saw them again or got any responses. That was my day....I can say that at least my season has been interesting.
Tomorrow morning my main turkey hunting buddy is going along. He doesn't have much time off to hunt this fall so he'll shoot any turkey. I hope to get him a shot, heck if he takes one i may just double up with him. Perhaps we'll get on those gobblers, although I had figured on leaving them alone a couple days now. Maybe one more try then pull off.
Bust em, Bag em, thank HIm
