Well I was able to add another bird to our total today. I posted the stats on the sub thread. 21 pounds, 9.75in beard, short spurs but overall a pretty solid bird. Happy to break my dry spell for the last couple years. Hopefully I can pull a double and bag one in WI next week... Good luck to the rest!

Hunter had lots of action on his first morning. The two toms we watched go to roost last night gobbled a ton at day break. They came into the field with three hens and followed them for awhile. Then they decided to come to the decoys.Pretty much nonstop gobbling as they strutted their way in.They went right for the jake deke and proceeded to smack it around and jump on it.The whole time my brother and I are trying to calm Hunter as he has come down with tom fever.They separated enough for a shot,Hunter shoots and gets a few chest feathers as the birds run away,so close so we move to second spot and see a tom in a pasture. We get setup in the field and call he gobbles and a hen starts to yelp.This goes on back and fourth for an hour when finally the hen comes into the field followed by six more hens and four longbeards. One tom walks up to the jake deke and Hunter couldn't get comfortable for a shot and the tom walks off. The other three toms get to about 30 yds. but are too tight together no shots.Lots of gobbling and action today all on Hunter's 8th birthday.

Well after coming close a few mornings Hunter connected with his tom saturday morning.The morning started out with two toms gobbling in the woods behind us.They flew down and came out to the field,they skirted our setup at about 30 to 35 yards.They were a little out of Hunters range.In the woods 400 yards to our east some hens,toms and jakes were starting to filter out to the fields.They were all feeding our way.They got behind a hill and we lost sight.After twenty minutes of staring at the hill we spot all of the turkeys running back into the woods they came out of.We spotted two hunters walking back to their truck.Once the truck left two turkeys come out of the woods and are heading our way.They both start to run to our setup closing in fast.We get Hunter ready and wait. We lose sight because the blind window is up on that side.We don't have to wait long for them to arrive.One runs right up to the jake strutter deke and puts his head right between the decoys fan.My brother and I are trying to calm Hunter.The turkey spins my decoy round and round.Hunter is worried about my decoy I assure him its fine if he hits it.Hunter pulls the trigger and his first tom is on the ground.Last year his jake came 2 days before his b-day,this year his tom came 2 day after.Took it to the taxidermist and he was not sure if it was double bearded,looked like main beard got hit and split but he was not sure.The sporting good store were we registered it thought it was.Hunter will register it for the contest as a single beard.We had a lot of action on every hunt a great way to start the season.My brother was able to make it on every hunt and was able to get it on film. P.S. I need a new fan for my decoy :grinhuntersturkey-1.jpg

Congrats Hunter, Ok so here is my story... Me and my dad who doesn't hunt went out on opening morning we left the house at 5am. We get out to where i have scouted turkeys for the last two months routinely. We planned on not hunting out of a blind so we bought a ghillie suit and other good camo the previous week. Anyways we get there and we walk down a fence line to set up about 50 yards away from the roost. We finally get to our spot and i notice another blind right on the other side of the fence and so i talk to the guy to make sure he knows i will be close so he doesn't shoot me on accident. Then we sit back down and wait..... around 550 am we start hearing gobbling because it was windy so it kept them quiet a little longer. They then fly down roughly around 615 and go out of sight to our right but not far away. Then my dad spots a hen about 5 yards to our left and it goes directly in front of us without noticing us, that was really cool. Then 5 minutes later my dad spots 3 gobblers to my left about 25 yards away so i move my gun slowly and line up and fire. The bird drops, i unload my gun and walk toward it and it runs away!! I was not a happy camper after that, we spent a few minutes looking for it but couldn't find it. So i go and talk to the guy who was right next to us and he was really nice and open to ideas, but anyways we were talking and had barely introduced ourselves when we saw two huge toms working our way about 150 yards away. We both drop down and army crawl to his blind and my dad was still on the other side of the fence so he was concealed. The guys friend was filming and so he gave one yelp and these birds came in on a line. I couldn't see them until they got 8 yards away because of the way i was laying behind their blind. He was using a bow so he shot first and smoked his, then mine put its head up curiously then i blasted it!!!! it was awesome the guy sent us the video that he had edited and it is sweet. Good luck Tomboys!!!!

Congrats Hunter and PikeFisher! It's great to see people taking the time to get kids out hunting and getting them hooked early.

Pike - I was surprised at how cooperative you and the other hunter were with each other, that was a pretty cool story. I'm pretty sure if I saw someone setup that close to a spot I wanted to hunt I'd back out because I'd figure we'd be in each others way but you two seemed to work it out just fine.

wow great job you 3 with your birds. 3 birds in season A is a pretty good start! Kind of adds alot of pressure to the rest of the team doesn't it...lol

I didn't get to get out over the weekend with my buddies kid but they heard some birds and had some close but couldn't close the deal...always next year. I leave for the DAV hunt in the morning...that is always a fun one. Good luck DrJ on your hunt!

I just returned from my hunt. Hunted from 5am to 6pm through wind and rain and a few nice days. We were down by Caledonia and the birds didn't like us this year. I think they are already bred down there and the toms didn't show any interest in my decoys or calling. Very little gobbling with none on 2 of the days.I had some birds pretty close but they didn't strut and just went on there way. GREAT to be out again and enjoying mother nature. Good Luck to all. The TOMBOYS still need 1 more bird to get to 4. Sorry I couldn't get the job done this year.... DrJ.....

Pikefisher and Hunter it's time to get your submissions in for our team. We still have a shot although no help from me. The Tomboys don't want to be buried on page 3. DrJ....

Nbadger23 how was the hunt? I can start on Wed but I won't be going till possibly Friday morning. My new bow won't be ready till Thursday and I don't think I can get it all set and sighted in on Thursday night so we will see.

Pike I didn't see your submission yet on the list?

      Sure was. And those 2 treated about everyone there that way!!😂   Oh yea them outdoor movie theaters, UFFDA. Kimball ballroom as well as me Jim's in Foley where good for a change of scenery. Seen head east there. That was awesome.

      Although I suspect I'm younger than a few of you. I used to remember as a kid going to the cabin with my dad and his buddy, I sat in the middle of a normal cab pickup, they both smoked, windows cracked about an 1/8 of an inch if I was lucky. Friday night we had hot dogs and canned vegetables, we'd catch walleye and 14-15 inch crappies off the dock and they were filleted without a second thought. Saturday nights was round steak and more canned veggies and Sunday we would head home with a cooler of fish. Not that I condone it in the least but there was always a six pack playmate cooler between my feet with high life and I would normally stuff a caprisun in there.

      Angling Buzz or lindners they are on there own website as well as You Tube. I enjoy them they are straight forward and a variety of species. Otherwise I do not watch much on you tube I would rather fish myself then watch someone else fish😃!. You are correct though you can learn a lot of techniques quick on line.
    • IceHawk
      Smurf I hung out in there so much Ma Pa Shulte treated me like one of there own sons 😀 That was a fun one! always a good mixed crowd. 
    • smurfy
      Well for all intensive purposes, the first post was related to resorts, opening if fishing in relation to the current situation. Just saying.
    • smurfy
      Yea no kidding  both you forgot the river roost and there bands. The pedistrians where awesome.   That is unless you 2 where to wet behind the ears yet!!;😂🤔
    • IceHawk
      Yes a big Thanks to all the insight everyone added to this subject I learned a bunch myself As a Moderator it did get a little tricky at times but discussions like this and fear uncertainty and  anxiety will bring that out with anyone at times . The thread can keep going on if some want to participate.  Its not locked I just felt it was time for myself  to take a break from it.  I guess if I'm allowed to fish somewhere all be allowed to fish somewhere. If not  Ill accept it and Ill fish another day just another stepping stone in life. 
    • Wanderer
      I can be done too.  Just trying to calm some nerves if possible.  Not looking to argue anything, but share some of what I’ve learned with my FM family.     I’ve learned more from participating in this thread, so thanks to y’all for adding what you have. 😎  Nobody knows everything about this deal.
    • IceHawk
      Dash looks like you hung out in some of my backyard haunts also. Sure you remember Slave Raider in New Munich ballroom 😀 Rock N Roll Buck  Zumhoff use to own the Richmond Collesium! He was quite the character 😂
    • IceHawk
      Who are some of your Favorite Fishing Hunting celebrity's you watch or Subscribe to on YouTube? For fishing hands down I love watching Tom Boley the man is real detailed and informative especially with his electronics and techniques. For hunting I really enjoy The Hunting Public. Just your basic average guys busting tail and getting it done in numerous states all on public land.
