Hey guys good to meet you all. No matter how new or how experienced you are at this, it's all about enjoying God's woods and soaking in the sounds and sights of the most exciting thing you can do with your clothes on! I'm SS, ready for the best time of year again, with 14 days til we kick off down here. FIRELT! What's up brother?! I saw some of your calls at the convention and even worked a couple of them, great sounding slates man! Ol' Kenny aint over here this year is he? Guys I'm pumped and ready to let out an early morning hoot and feel the thunder. Team 5 is gonna tear em up this year!
Anyways I've been turkey hunting 3 tracts of family land since I was 18, about 8 years now. I've killed about 25 birds, only one of them a jake and the others having beards no less than 8" long. I consider myself experienced (on my land), and usually kill at least two birds every year, most years 3 or 4, except the first year while I was learning and only killed one. I have a lot of competition around me from another guy that is a serious gobbler killin machine (and poacher). Word is he killed 50 birds last spring and we've caught him locating birds during early morning hours on our property several times. He hunts probably 5000 acres around the county (plus mine when I'm not there), vs me who hunts about 600 total and never crosses the property line. I mention him because he plays a big part in my turkey season and you'll hear me complaining about him very often. I make my own mouth calls and consider myself pretty good at working a diaphragm. I hoot and gobble with my natural voice, and have recently started playing around with hen calling with my voice as well. I wipe dirt on my face, love it when an old tom makes me belly crawl after him, hunt pouring rain and thunderstorms, and enjoy working a bird for several hours. When I turkey hunt, I TURKEY HUNT, like a starving Cherokee indian. I'm ready to go and ready to meet the rest of the team. Let's get em guys.
