My house didnt get hit too bad. In other news, we took my brother out for the youth season, heard a few but no action. The turkeys up here r just getting started. On the way home, i saw a gobbler down in a field where i had seen 2 jakes previously, so we stopped the van, rolled down the window and i called to it well he was walking away, he stopped and GOBBBLLLEEEE! Then he gobled again and went in to strut. It was sweet! We drove away and he walked into the woods. We r going to get permission to hunt there because nobody else does bc the people that own it live in canandaigua. Then this morning i was sitting in my living room messing with my 535 and talking to my brother josiah, when next thing i know, a HUGE jake walks out right across the road, which has never happened. it eventually wandered bck into the woods, and then my brother and i were out on the road a little later throwing the football, and 2 HUGE gobblers crossed the road only 50 yards from us. They went right onto property that is close to property that i can hunt so look out gobblers, i hope. Cant wait for opening day!

My buddy and I went out today and scouted 4 different areas, did not hear one sound or see any sign what so ever. I think we are way behind the rest of the state or we had a real bad winter kill. Hopefully things will pick up later. Doesn't look good for the opener.

Retranger,
Let me know how you make out opening week. Coming home on the 4th and I cant wait!!!! I will be by myself for the most part second week so if you are falling on hard times with no birds, shoot me a PM and I can put you on one if you want to come down. Hunting in GA has been horrible! Public land birds wise up real quick and they havent gobbled in a week. Hitting a 2300 acre lease down here Saturday morning with a member and they are hammering like hell still. Last chance before I come home next week.

From what I saw on the weather last night the birds in that area either got washed away or surcombed to the hail. Terrible weather this spring all over!!!



Yep we did get hit pretty damn good with the rain and hail and damn wind some tornado action I live Outside of Oneonta in the Milford area and it is still running down my mountain side through my backyard sounds like a river.. But it did kill the action here a little opening weekend might be bad but it might be great if the weather holds out. GOOD LUCK TO ALL and STAY SAFE!!!
