On Day 1, I hiked a big area where I thought I could get away from other hunters. I was right. I saw nobody, but didn't hear much either. At around 10:00 (IIRC) I called in two jakes, one of them gobbling.
On Day 2, I heard a gobbler at 5:40, and a shot from that area at 6:06. Around 8:00 or 8:30, four gobblers (I could see the beard on only the first one) looked like they were going to enter the field, but at the last minute swerved and walked adjacent to the field about 50 yards inside the woods.
On Day 3 (today), I sat in the same blind. Until quitting time nothing but rain -- hard rain most of the time. I stuck it out, but never anything larger than a tweety bird -- a few goldfinches few by at one of the times the rain let up slightly. I got wet from the walk in and from the condensation inside the blind.
I had a Pretty Boy deke set up, borrowed from a friend, but even that didn't lure them out of the woods. On my way home I saw a group -- about 8 birds -- out in another field.
Tomorrow's Day 4. The forecast for Thursday looks better.
