Gobble Gobble, Turkey Time
 
On Easter we went to my parents house in the afternoon. While watching the boys playing outside I heard a turkey gobble a couple times. So, I ran inside and told my dad, changed clothes, and off we went. I had brought my stuff along just in case, but this was my first time turkey hunting so I enlisted my dad as my caller. We made our way down near it, and called for nearly an hour with limited response. We finally decided that it wasn't going to move, and walked up the logging road to see if we could find any activity. Shortly thereafter we walked up on 5 birds, 4 of which spooked when they saw us. Unfortunately for the brave one, he is now going to be dinner. I know that had it not been opening weekend I probably never would have walked in on this bird as closely as I did.

Nice birds guys,

My blind blew down in the storm today. I'll walk down to it in a few minutes and hopefully get it back in shape. I may go early in the morning before work. Going to Kentucky next week to hunt too. There are lots of turkeys this year, more than I can remember.

Byron,

I agree. I have seen more birds this year than ever before. I even saw a couple jakes and a gobbler yesterday evening while on the Clinch. They walked to within probably 30 yards of me, and never spooked.

Travis, was that around the area where you was taking pictures the other day when we floated past in the drift boat? The farm right below where that camper is, is a farm thats been in the family for years. It loaded with birds, we woke up to a flock of 10 right next to our camp site when we was camping there last spring. I'm talking hens 10 yards from our tent. LOL
