Tomorrow is the day!

Postby allaboutshooting » October 22nd, 2010, 2:05 pm

The fall (gun) turkey season opens here in Southern Illinois tomorrow. Doris and I have been seeing some birds for the last week+ and hopefully we'll get on them. It's so dry here that moving around in the woods seems counterproductive but at least we should be able to hear them coming from a long way.

I'll let you know how it goes.

Thanks,
Clark

Hey Jon,

We'll be out early and hopefully get into them. We appreciate the good words.

Thanks,
Clark

Thank you all for the good wishes. We had a great day, just no turkeys. For the first time we hunted our land for birds. We'd seen several groups of jakes and thought we'd give it a try.

We were out a bit after 6:00 a.m. and hunted until noon, then back out at 1:00 p.m. and hunted until after 6:00 p.m.

We did not see a turkey but saw lots of other wildlife and enjoyed being together. We had a great supper and all in all, it was a great day.

We can't hunt today, Sunday but will be back after them on Monday.

Thanks again,
Clark
