    What area of NY is this?
  2. Turkey's Killed on Decline

    Hey everyone- Just seeing everyone's opinion on this. I started hunting NY in 1996. My dad and I noticed it was loaded with birds. As the years went on, it was harder and harder to find birds. Now they are starting to be around more like they were 20 years ago. I recently saw I report from the state about the decline in hunters and decline in turkey kills. Has anyone noticed this? I still hunt the same area year after year. Some years I see a lot of birds, other years not so much. Last year I saw more birds than ever. Let me know what your observations have been over the past. Here is the link to the report....https://www.dec.ny.gov/outdoor/30420.html
  3. Might be a tuff youth season...

    This should most certainly play in our favor. As soon as we get that first warm up, the birds should be hot and ready to play

    What kind of dekes are you using? One suggestion would be just try the hen next time...there might be a boss gobbler in the area and they all got the crap kicked out of each other and they dont want to get beat up again
  5. My Buddy 1st ever turkey hunt & bird down

    Excellent! Congrats to the both of you! Sounds like a great 2 days in the woods!
  6. Team effort! Big Longbeard down!

    Pop and I got it done Saturday morning....hunted a new property had know idea what we were in for...did a little scouting the afternoon before and found some area where they looked like they would be...We were right!!! I did the calling Pop did the killing! Struted across a 300 yard field all the way into the decoys! Coolest hunt we were ever on! Nothing better than a father son team! 22 pounds, 9.5" beard, 1.25" spurs. Awesome 3 year old bird!
  7. Go to call

    My homemade mouth calls....always my go to

    Thats great RangerClay!! Very glad to hear it was just adrenaline rather than her getting really sick...never want to hear those words come out of your childs mouth...you can tell her thats a good kind of sick and thats the only kind of sickness i look forward to getting every year!!! Nothing like it! I will be in 7M this weekend as well, but I will be down near Norwich. Good Luck to you!

    Sounds like they are really gobbling on the roost, but they shut up once they hit the ground.

    Not seeing as many birds a s last year.....but i am hoping things change...weather will be rainy the first few days...we will see how the affects the birds behavior
  11. Nates first bird,

    ASAV....were you hunting near Waterville? Sounds like the birds we actually talkative
  12. Nates first bird,

    Nothing wrong with that at all!!! CONGRATS!! Any turkey is a trophy, even to us guys who have been doing it for 20+ years. I get pumped over any bird on the ground. The size of the turkey doesnt matter, its all about the experience!

    Hey Everyone! With the youth season starting up this weekend and the main season to follow a few days later, I wanted to start this topic. Report should include the following; -What county, WMU, or region you are in (doesnt need to be exact we dont want to give our spots away!) -What you're seeing, hearing, etc. -I like to include when and how often they are gobbling, also like to know if they are henned up or you are seeing big flocks, bachelor groups, or lonely birds. This can be a great tool for everyone, something that is nice to hear reports so us hunters dont get discouraged. We are all brothers and sisters of the turkey woods and we want to always help everyone be postive, because we all know that turkey hunting can be the greatest sport ever or the one that can make you so depressed you are ready to give up....all it take is 2 seconds to change an entire season! Good luck all and be safe out there! -Z
  14. Setup Time

    Every situation is different. I am usually standing in a field or ridge top listening at about 45 mins before sunrise. I will listen, find the birds location and then setup from there. Everyday is different
  15. Hows this pattern?

    That's an awesome pattern at 50 yards! Keep that setup! Good luck Wednesday!
