Set up Sat. at 2p.m. same area as last spring (march). Birds were south.Moved in under roost in a.m.Didn't call due to low light conditions when birds flew down but they came into my stuffer decoy anyway.Shot the first one and then it was on!I did see longbeards but due to weather wanted to get done and get going. Was in Ill. by 8p.m.Will watch weather in Jan. and may try KS.I saw lots of longbeards this spring.Am having trouble with pic message said file to large?

What part of the state are you hunting in and is it private or public land?  You stated that you hunted the same area as last spring and saw lots of longbeards then.  Did you scout the area prior to spring hunting?  If not, did you just luck out or did someone recommend the area to you?
I hunted for the first time this past year so I'm still on a big learning curve.  Thanks for your time.

FireFly908 I was on private land.I did luck out when my wife said I could go.But turkeys are turkeys and this time of year they flock up.In the late fall this can be a problem out west becouse they like the easy food they can get on cattle ranches.So permission can be an issue.This is also what I am hunting in March.I was in the south cental area on the KS. state line.What part of NE. are you in?I do know that most walk in areas in KS. are good if they have roosting areas.It is also better in the spring when the birds break- up.The birds will move more and you could get a shot.Are you bowhunting?If so a ground blind will help make a hunt more enjoyable when first starting out.

Hey fallhnt,
 
Here is a link to a great software program that I use all the time to resize photos to fit the T&TH limits.
