Good news is that there seems to be more birds this year than in the past 2 or 3.



Great news! I don't put in for any hunts anymore (except LBL), but I'm glad to hear the birds are coming back.

I see on the map there are lots of fields around SF, are they any good? Sounds like a person will probably need a good GPS device.

There are some fields down there, though they are very accessible and such a obvious spot, that I did not mess with them. I guarantee you that is where 80% of the hunters will head and, even if they don't bump the birds out of the roost setting up, you'll be sharing a field. I'm sure the birds use those fields, but I wouldn't bother with it.

Thinking about driving over in the morning to listen and then do some scouting. Anyone know if they're gobbling in that area yet??

I haven't been out yet, but they should be gobbling some by now.

I don't know if you've gotten your permit in yet Camaro, but I got mine yesterday at it says:

"All hunters are required to register and obtain a free permit at the park headquarters (901) 876-5215"

I assume that you can get this permit anytime before the hunt, so you may want to try and get it while your there.

I am kind of late to the party but my buddy and I were also drawn for the first week hunts at Shelby Forest. This is my first public land hunt of any kind. We have done some scouting and I think we have a good spot in mind. Good luck to yall.
