Great year for your family Spellnj3, lot of memories, glad your father got to enjoy the hunt even if he didnt pull the trigger.

Never made it out yesterday, wind woke me up at 2am, rocking the house. Will be running back over there Friday and Saturday, looking at 80 degrees, should have birds looking for new girlfriends after this weekend's 2 inches of rain and 40+ mph winds.

Only heard 1 Tom this morning, made my way to area, He dropped into a private field, gobbled at everything I threw at him. Waited till after 9 before giving up on him. Even had his hens talking, but I had a swamp between us, sure he gets messed with every day, he's easily seen in field from road. Back at it again tomorrow. 2 weeks left...

Didn't happen again, yesterday spotted 3 red heads in a field thats public, 1 was in full strut, full fan. There was no way I could get to him yesterday. Went in this morning after them. Small area 1 house in middle it. Went to rear of property next to marsh, 1st gobble didnt happen till 645, and only heard 1 time, and of course on private. Was a very foggy damp morning, didnt start calling till 7, instant response close, hit it a 2nd time and he is now within 30 yds, but gobble sounded like a jake, set up behind 2 tree stumps, here they come, 2 jakes, safety was off, watched as they walked down wood line and right into woods too me, 5' from end of barrel. Let them walk behind me, took some pictures as they walked off, then called them back 2 more times, hoping all the gobbling he was doing would bring out the Tom, no luck. 2 tags left...

They must’ve liked what they were hearing to have them come back to you like that.

Day 5 of my late season hunt. They're gobbling like mad about 150 yards to my south, just up the  hillside and across the Root River. Per usual. Problem is, they've been flying down on the wrong side of the river more often than not. Maybe today's the day.

Thanks lacire. Now going on well over two hours. They've managed to cut the distance (they're behind thick brush, can't tell how close), but they still haven't crossed the river.

They finally crossed the river, 100 yards from my setup. Maybe tomorrow.

Sounds like your gaining ground on them notsure, keep after them, good luck. I am headed back over Wed. Try another area, hopefully less pressure on birds now, fishing is starting to pick up in Bay, more guys fishing than hunting.
