4/7 Arrived at camp late afternoon my buddie went out back and made a few calls a gobbler up on the mountain answered and started down we went inside and he came within 10 yds. of the back door exactly from where he called and brought 4 of his girl friends with him. They hung around for 30 minutes then fed off to roost.
4/8 Saw 20 plus birds 4 strutters in the valley then went to the top of the mountain heard 3 birds, it was snowing with a light wind and 1" of snow on the ground we also heard the old gobbler behind camp gobbling around 2:30 pm.
4/9 25 degrees heavy frost we wanted to see where the birds in the valley were roosted so we silently got into the woods close to where we saw them the day before. Turkeys gobbled up and down the creek at first light and we had a gobbler sail 300 yds. across the creek and almost landed in my lap then 4 hens did the same we never made a call. Birds gobbled very good at first light.
4/10 We were on top of the mountain at first light heard hens on the roost then the boss started gobbling the hens flew to him and things got quiet. heard another bird crank up close to us in another location and we moved on. We went to another spot to listen and as we were approaching the area we saw a big gobbler below us on the bench looking for company but was silent.
4/11 Back home Rain light wind birds gobbled good at first light but it died off as the rain and wind increased. Looks like the birds are getting very active now I hope they don't get burnt out in the next 2 wks.
