My buddy and I are heading to Chuck Swan next weekend. Any advice on hunting late season or on Chuck Swan? Thanks.

Never been there but on the highest ridge you can find and listen, look for sign if you get a chance and listen in that area. GOOD LUCK!

Get away from the fields and get on a ridge top. Cover lots of ground if you have too

USE PLENTY OG BUG SPRAY! Ticks are bad.Mosquitoes too.
We had this past weekend and heard plenty of gobbling on Thursday from multiple birds. I meant to use that day to locate birds and hunt'em hard Fri and Sat. Fortunately I killed Thursday so I did not have to hunt the nasty weather down there. My brother hunted Friday in the rain and missed one. No gobbles but had hens and 2 strutters that he knew were there from Thursdays hunt. came by. Just missed. Starting to get late but get on a ridgetop looking down at the lake and you will hear gobbling, but then again, you probably will hear gobbling bout anywhere you go unless you are down in a hole.

There are birds anywhere and everywhere. Some of the best hunting is right in the middle. Most folks run off to the lake edges and the best hunting from what me and my buddies have found is right in the middle, nowhere near the lake where the birds have had the most pressure.

Thanks for the advice. Sounds like there are still several birds.
