Second trip to the Idaho turkey woods

Friday evening we watched the buggers roost only 50 yards from my prefered blind location so I chose another spot to set up bout 100 yards downhill. They and several others gobbled in the roost Saturday morning starting at 4:45 pst, hit the ground and continued gobbling their butts off. They drifted off but I knew they had heard me and would likely return. I kept after it and and 30 minutes after flydown I got a closing gobble, then multiple gobbles. I thought it might be the bachelors. They gobbled several times within 50 yards behind us, but we couldn't see them. A hen chimed in from the other side of our setup and the boys went nuts. I had them going, the hen had them going......then they cleared the end of the trees and came strutting in. Once again I had the video camera but chose to grab the smokepole instead. They danced around the jake decoy at 15 yards. I told my daughters boyfriend (that I had in tow) to just watch and see if they'd kick the jakes butt. They didn't, just strutted and gobbled in unison twice at 15 yards! Countdown time, 1-2-3, only one of trio remain!

Kurtis's bird is a nice 3 yr old, mine a decent 2 yr old. Mine eastern marked and the other another Idaho Mutt.

Cool photos of the setup; very realistic....maybe I'd carry dekes if I knew how to arrange them properly smile.gif Foggy hunts are excellent, makes it seem even more magical.

      Thanks for the up dates, we were going to come up today to find a different spot to park but have to work. Weather is supposed to be good. Hope to get on the board too.

      I don't know, not getting your mail delivered to your door is a very egregious situation.  He also has a great sense of history indicating he has vision.  Letting us know he erected his sign in 2008 provides a vivid example of his powers.  He sees the future well...he gonna be pissed at somethin!  A bit of a Nostradamus.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.
