Well , I killed that jake last sunday with the thought that I'd have plenty to keep me occupied till spring . Wood for the stove , home repairs , coyote , squirrel, crow , fox , coons and deer to be hunted . A couple calls to build . So far none of this stuff has helped . And this morning I had a tribe of jakes withing 100 yards and yelping like crazy . One would half gobble every time the yelper would get started . It was music for certain ,,,but it made the task at hand a mite tough to stay focused on .
Yeah , yeah , yeah ,,,I know , I'll survive ,,,,,but I gotta admit ,,,I miss being able to go to the woods in pursuit of Meleagris Galopavo Silvestris .
