Tough season but not a total loss.

Recommended Posts

Still have an hour plus today and tomorrow so not completely over.  Been a odd season, know there's 3 toms and 2 jakes on the farm im hunting but tjeyve been henned up everytime I've seen them and can't pull them away.  Had a shot once on one of them last week but passed it as i thought he was going to set up on the strutting deke and put on show just to see him skip on by and lock up at 40 yds without a shot window and gobble his head off trying to pull the hen deke to him.  Tried belly crawling and fanning birds, which ive had good results witj in the past, in the field but again they wouldn't pull off the hens. Also I've heard very little gobbling, little bit here and there but not like usual.

Not complaining as I did get the opportunity to help out the farmer and deer and turkey population by taking out a sneaky yote that belly crawled up to my hen deke and was met with a load of 3inch #5's.

Healthier than he looked. He'd been eating well, think it was just that he'd shed his winter coat.  Farmer has appreciated the 3 I've taken out since last fall as they been tormenting his cattle and there's been more than one calf lost to the yotes which is why I don't passing on a turkey or deer to pop a yote ;).
