i'm still out there chasin the big one, guys. aint about to give up, even though this has been my toughest season in recent memory.
has been very, very difficult getting the toms to work. birds still flocked up in my neck of the woods - thats crazy for this late in the season.
the other day i was set up between two groups that had about 6 toms apiece firing off from the roost. after flydown, both flocks got together and moved off in a group of about 30.
about a dozen times i've had a tom within 75 yards, but he eventually would drift off with the hens. i've shot a lot of birds from mid-morning on cuttin and runnin but have struck only a couple gobbles this season.
i'm down but not out. my final season begins thursday. maybe by then most of the hens will be on the nest and the big boys will be out cruisin.
