More of the same over the weekend, birds gobbling like crazy on the limb. Once they hit the ground they will gobble some but they just follow the hens wherever they go. Me and the boys were set up on gobbling birds both mornings, watched them fly down and strut away with the hens!


First week of the season I had 3 birds down in 5 hunts,they would leave the hens or have none, now it's like you say they fly down and you had better be in their path or you'll miss out and listen to the gobbles as they get further away!

5 hunts, buncha gobbles, 2 interested birds, 1 dead bird. One buddy was done 4 days into season. Wish I had his 'bad' luck.

If they would leave season open all year long I think I would be a lot fitter person. I've lost about 15 pounds since the start of the season. LOL

Muddy,
I hunted the farm down the creek next to your lease down last weekend. I did not see one track, or any sign what so ever. And the bottoms where planted in corn last year.

i have been all over the toms this year and have only taken 1 so far

gobbling like crazy on the limb
silent on the ground for the most part for me
and they dont seem to want to be with hens at all espically in feilds.......

and a couple of heavily flooded creek bottoms dividing fields has not helped me much either at times

i have been close at least 4-5 times but they fly down into another feild i cant get too due to the creeks being flooded.

i just wish i could get a break and have some of that luck thing just once in awhile....

I'm glad that I wasn't "done 4 days into the season". The next time out, I'll be trying hard to kill another bird, and I hope to be out there on the last day of the season also. The name of the game for me is the hunt.

Me too, I have climbed more giant mountains for nothing then I can ever remember. Last Saturday I was so tired I could barely stay awake through dinner.
