I returned to one of the flocks I found last weekend , this morning. It was going to be a short 2 hour hunt , due to family gatherings , but I had to get out . I chose to try the flock nearest the road for times sake . A 50 yard walk from parking lot to a powerline clearcut , turn right and downhill for nearly 100 yards to a well used and very old dusting sight . Needless to say I was make some noise in the near dark conditions . I made it to the dust bowls and settled down a while . I hit the wingbone with a few tree calls . Nothing . Waited a bit and hit the Wilson Box , again , a few tree yelps . Nothing . Light was increasing and I could see the property line markers . OOOPS! I was on the wrong side . So I moved to be legal . After moving I hit the Kinder mouthcall and I heard a THUD across the clearcut , and out in the timber maybe 50 yards . I was guessing it was a turkey hitting the ground . A minute later I hear the big wings of another ,,,then another . I kept switching calls trying to get them fired up , but nothing doing .
THANKSGIVING DAY PARADE ,,,,,,,went away from me silently. But it sure beat sitting at home wishing I had gone .
Y'all have a great day ![:D]
