Good luck Turkey Harvestor, sounds like you have some good areas to hunt.

Update on my hunt Wednesday. I didn’t strike a gobble til around 11:30. Set on him 4 different times, he came to about 75 yards and hung up each time, in plain view. One time he was at 50, but it was so thick I just didn’t wanna chance a shot. After the last set, he shutdown, so I eased out. I will be back after him if the weather cooperates this weekend. 1 week til I go chase some Rios.  ????

I am out hunting again on public land, might be my last chance.
Yesterday I had a guy walk into my set up twice: I think he was trespassing from another wma next door. He looked real sketchy and put his face mask on as soon as he saw me. Also had a hound dog run thru my set up at 1st light.
Today the winds are gusting 20-30 mph, I hunted till 10:00am and that was all I could take.


I have 2 more days to hunt.  I feel like I would have a chance if it was just me and the turkeys.
Anybody else hunting?

talk about getting your butt handed to ya. Monday morning was probably the coldest opening morning I can remember. It was 27 degrees with wind chill of 16. 25-30 mph winds. Heard 3 birds they gobbled 2 times each and never heard another peep. Saw 2 hens across a field, but no gobbler. We stuck it out till noon, saw 2 more hens and that's it. Buddies I talked too said pretty much same thing. I'm off Friday and next Friday so I'll have 2, 3 day weekends to find a working bird hopefully.
