Less than a month to my opening day and I've been sitting here watching my Food Plot and Behind the house Cams and no Turkey or Deer in about a week! Must be better greens popping up all over or something!

Thanks for the report. Reckon that's why they call it hunting instead of killing.
 
Hopefully your nephew learned a lesson about moving when 'ol Tom can see him.

You'll get the Gobbler next time!

My hunt doesn't start til May 3rd but a little while ago I went out to my food plot and made some mouth calls and 15 Minutes later a Tom came in...You have to look real close to see his beard cause the video isn't very good...

Called a Tome in Tonight!!!

Howdy team! I'm chompin' at the bit to hunt but I have 20 days til my opening day!
I haven't heard from all of our team since I was added...how about we all check in and see how scouting or hunting has been?

I've got lots of birds just can't hunt yet...ill share some more pics and videos this weekend!

Got three other Toms on Video too after reviewing my camera's. This footage is right behind my house so hunting is off limits but if they walk behind the house I can coax them into the food plot/woods...[8D]

3 Toms!
