Hey Hey Hey,
 
The yooper is checking in under fellow michiganders.  Can't beat the birds up here fellas! LOL  Good to see some of us are in the forum.  Welcome fellas.

Sorry fellas I'm a Hoosier, but I did tag a tom for myself and guided a first timer to another tom and this was in Osceola co. Thanks for a great time, and there was a lot of gobbles and aggressive hens to argue with, but when it came down to it, spot, stalk, and intercept was what smoked them birds.
                        GOOD LUCK, GOD BLESS, AND STAY SAFE

stra8shooter-good to hear from you and good luck in Kentucky. I hunted there in Magoffin county a few years ago. Didn't get one there but blame it on my inexperience. This year I hunted an area full of toms.  I don't think any birds ever get killed there and was unsuccessful at calling them over to where I can hunt. After 5 days of listening to 8 to 10 toms gobble every morning(on roost) I gave up here and went to a farm where 2 friends and myself killed toms last year(originally planned on staying out of there this year). Before daylight heard 3 birds gooble. Latter in morning saw a few hens and saw a nice tom strutting about 120 yards away and another hunkered down about 90 yards away with his feathers sort of puffed out. Tried calling and they never responded and finally wandered off. So did I. Skipped hunting there the next day and went back on a Monday morning, set up in a pot hole in northeast corner of field with the bottom of 2 hills disecting the field 40 yards in front of me (I already knew the birds like to travel this low spot unseen. Set up in dark and a gobbler  was roosted   on edge of field(new location to me). I was busted before daylight. At 6:00 bird started gobbling, but it was choked up and funny sounding. I could see him 175 yds. across field. Finally he hopped off limb straight down instead of flying out into  field(and disappeared in brush). Stayed where I was and called every once in awhile. After a couple hours birds stated filtering into field and I noticed 2 toms. I quit calling completely and watched(12 to 14 birds). Finally 4 hens with a tom sort of circleing them worked over my way. Finally the tom swung out in front of me and I shot once with my 835(38 paces). Didn't weigh him but was a hefty bird with 1 inch spurs and a little over 9 inch beard. Hope this wasn't too long.   Randy

Howdy Boys-
 
Just got back from Missouri last night (5-3) where I tagged 2 gobblers. I'll post pics and stories in the Missouri forum.
 
Now I'm ready to get after those Michigan birds!
Stay tuned.

OK! 19rabbits52 congrats on your bird!!! it's alway's a thrill to bring home the turkey bacon.great story .  glad you connected. my misgivings allow me to now continue to start mich. hunting this weekend. kentucky is over for me, no bird . a lot of great memories,to this day still can't sit in the right spot @ the right time.
 
well off to big rapids for the weekend maybe i'll be luckier over there,if not it's over to the thumb, if that sucks its up to the UP. if that don't work i,ll hang it up till next year and go fishing.
