I hunt 400 acres , surounded by another 400 or so in northwestern il. lots of woods ,pastures and plenty of creeks, have been hunting this for 7 years and have shot 3 birds. My ? is if I don't get one first thing in morning they disapear,and the hunt is basiclly over by 9 am. no gobbling no nothing ,prety much same every year no matter earlly season or late . by the way have never saw another hunter but it is a two hour drive to get there and not the easist to scout. any answers. thanks so much!
