If you want to kill a fall gobbler hunt where they eat! The two gobblers that my son and I killed this week were killed from the same blind four days apart in a grove of pin oak trees. Both birds craws were full of pin oak acorns, dogwood berries and grass seeds.

yup I just decided to hunt some oaks after I found lots of fresh scratch all around oak trees on friday. Next time I hit that particular section of WMA, I will just sit by the fresh sign and wait. I was unsuccessful in finding where they roosted. The sign was very fresh and went throughout the whole stretch of woods. Good deer woods too. Once fall turkey season closes I'm taking the bow and then ML straight back in there.

Hope I can get a gobbler this fall! only a few days left. Hens and poults are great for meat but I want a longbeard in the fall since they are so much more elusive than in the spring.

Cat,our scouting clued us that these gobblers were likely to show up in that area from late morning to mid-afternoon. I bagged my bird at 2:30 and my son his at 3:30. Neither of us were in the blind over an hour and a half. Its a big leg up when you know their pattern. And, hunting on private land doesn't hurt either. lol

yeah I will be on private land in the morning and also most likely all day thursday. the birds have been coming up and picking out the germinating wheat in the food plots. So far only hens and poults, I haven't killed any yet on that property this year, but hope that will change in the A.M.
