Can't get them all Chad... I just took a walk to check out a spot in Jersey by my house... Remember hunting is done at 12, so I'm only scouting... Got in the woodd and hit the mouth call.. GOBBLE GOBBLE about 200 yds out the ridge.. Took a piss and hit the call again.. GOBBLE GOBBLE about 75 yds out behind some cedars... Fugger is comming quick... I got out of there fast and left him gobbling... Probably thinking,,, OK I know there's a horny hen here somewhere.... What she have a headache now?? Yesterday I couldn't buy a gooble....

Well. Let's go get embarrassed by some ridiculous bird with the brain the size of a pea. I bought my license and tag. Hopefully I can at least hear some birds and enjoy God's creation this morning. Shooting a bird? That would be cool too. Given my luck with turkeys. . . .I fully expect the unexpected. haha

Gobbled on roost like mad. Stopped counting at 60. Probably 80-100 gobbles on roost. Only 2-3 on ground. 5 hens. 2 Tom's. One was real vocal with the other chiming in on occasion while on roost. I'm guessing the mouthy one was the one in and out of full strut all morning. Other just hung back and watched. At 200yds out, I pretty much only got to watch as well. Oh well. Good to be in the woods.

Neighbor kid put his blind in there field today so he must be seeing them again. I usually cut him off since they roost where I hunt. He's got the jump on me I won't be out til Saturday. Still haven't been hearing them over there.
