Went out to see where the birds I saw in field the other day were roosting. Well, I found out.  Right next to where they were in the field!


Treeline next to field where birds spotted earlier this week. Roosted gobblers replied to owl hoot, but nothing on ground

Birds flew down ~200 yds right in front of me. Brought zoom lens w me this morning

Was sighting in my turkey gun in the upper Shenandoah Valley yesterday at high noon.   Heard a bird gobble several times.  He was no doubt lonely and looking for love.

Tuesday morning was met with good gobbling beginning at 6:53, stayed put until 7:24 and watched the flock fly down.  Heard a couple of other birds across the creek on another property that gobbled good too.

Went yesterday morning and heard two gobbling pretty good on the roost. It was my third time going out but first time hearing gobbles. Really sounded good to hear gobbles again

Drove around the roads here in Bluemont area yesterday morning. Stopping at likely spots to owl hoot and hit the long box. Got six separate birds reply and saw three w binos in far off fields strutting. I stopped at the top of a hill to scan down into a large cut cornfield and just happened to look over to opposite side of the road in the farmer’s front yard.
40 yds away was a big Tom. He was getting a little nervous w my truck stopped there an walking off. Remembered I had my camera and got this pic of him thought it was pretty neat, except I rushed it and he isn’t in focus

It is neat. Did you get permission to hunt?

No.  Need to research who owns it and now w the Corona virus folks don’t like you walking up to their door unannounced
