I pretty much stopped 2 weeks ago after calling in 14 longbeards and numerous jakes for the year for myself and various folks. With 7 in the freezer for the family we just didnt need any more turkey. Ive been out doing plots though early of a morning and still hearing some gobbling.

I am going with a friend Saturday morning here in SW TN in an attempt to help him get his first turkey. I am definitely following my heart and not my mind considering we have not heard a single gobble since April 24.

That is pretty darn impressive and a helluva year IMO. If my memory serves me correct, I recall you stating earlier in the year (or possibly last year) that y'all didn't have the turkeys these days like y'all once did. Am I mistaken?

I'm going in the morning for a short bit before work and then plan on going Saturday morning. Hoping the bird I missed opening morning is around.

We still dont have near the turkeys we used too in alot of areas. Its down right pitiful in areas it used to be great. For instance, I only got on 1 gobbler on a 1300 acre tract Ive hunted since I could walk, we used to see and hear 10 or more there every day back years ago.They have moved into alot of new areas though where there didnt used to be turkeys just a couple years ago, lots of the newer populations are in ag areas out of the mountains. It just seemed like nearly every day I hunted there would be a cooperative bird around.
