I didn’t hear any gobbles today in South Florida. Put my eyes on a big gobbler but unfortunately he caught a glimpse of me. Gonna be back after him in the morning. Based on sign there’s 3-4 I can chase. I’ll keep y’all posted!

I’m so blessed to have been able to kill my first Osceola at 12:30 today in Big Cypress. He’s a Jake, so I won’t be posting a score for him, but I’m more proud of this turkey than any I’ve shot.

After not hearing any gobbles all day, and walking in some of the thickest stuff you could imagine, I decided to gear down and methodically hunt over sign I found. After 45 minutes or so, I was ready to move to the next spot, but peaked down the trail before I stood up and there stood a hen.

One yelp and she sprinted dead at me, stopping at 5 feet. After this encounter, I decided to stay put and really stepped on my call. 10 minutes later this guy and his buddy come over my right shoulder at 8 feet, clucking and causing a racket I let him walk to 30 yards before I shot.

Thanks guys! All morning I was really starting to feel in way over my head. Turkey hunting sure is a humbling sport, but it can go from bad to good in a split second

Folks who have never hunted turkeys don’t understand. What works one day may not work the next. Or it may work 10 times in a row and then you get shut out the next 20. If a turkey could smell I don’t think I’d ever kill one!

The good Lord ain't made a gobbler I can't kill.  I just gotta be there at the right time on the day he wants to die.

Alright Delmar!!!! Congratulations on your first Osceola!

You’ve killed far more turkeys than me but I think that’s a great lesson for all of us. We all know how to kill turkeys, we just need to trust ourselves to reassess, take a step back, and make the right moves. I know for me, sometimes I go on tilt and start going too fast thinking “well let’s go check here...and way over there...and maybe there’s some this way.” All of the sudden 2 days have passed and I did nothing but nervously and quickly see the sites.
