I'd be happy to remove them for you. I won't even charge you for this valuable service.

I haven't hunted in two years. Basically because the population has been down on my property. I've seen five and six bird groups during deer season so I figure I'd let them grow in numbers for a while. I did see a sizable flock this spring but I think I'll give them one more year.

 

Still I might chalk up the box and see if we can't carry on some conversations, just for grins.

If I do call one in I'll have my story and a bigger grin. Now I'm thinking - take a camera.

 

 

Wish you all luck though.

No reason not to, many different ways to hunt.. don't like getting up sleep in and then go,or get up early and try, or roost the night before.get in close and try early am then go home and back to bed.. much more interactive than deer hunting.. just do as much as you want, but when you hear a bird spit and drum so close to you your whe head vibrates ...you'll be hooked

Looking forward to May 1st this year. Last year I went to grab my bow to check it over and start shooting and it was dust. This year, I have my 12ga and I am ready! Already did a pattern check this morning and all is good. If my calling is right and I get one inside 30 yards, going to have a real turkey for next Thanksgiving!

Good luck to all this Spring!

Everything has been quiet in my area of 9h so far.

Starting to see a little more sign lately, but nothing willing to communicate yet.

I'm just getting started hunting them with the camera now.

Im excited for this year as well! I got pictures of big toms during deer season and seeing turkey was pretty much a daily thing. I even heard gobbling opening day of gun season for 2 hours. Hopefully they stick around till May.

Saw about 40 in back yards tonight . Not much of a turkey Hunter myself , I've killed a few Toms , but i average less then a couple hunts a year .

I will say though , one of my buddies gets up his normal time eats breakfast and heads out , he kills Toms every year . I tend to do the same when I do go ,I hate getting getting up so early to beat them flying down .

I have been seeing a decent flock ( a dozen or so) in the fields I hunt. I haven't been to the back of the property since deer season, but Im sure that they're there too….

I'm afraid to miss listening to the woods wake up. So alarm gets set for 3 a.m. Tim Hortons on the fly. Listening to the robins , the cardinals , wood thrush, crows and then gobbles as the sun starts to peek out. That's half the fun IMO. I'm a morning person. Love the fact my now 13 year old daughter will be dressed 2 minutes after I wake her too. Timbits make a good incentive lol

Going tomorrow to throw a few down range to check my gun. Love my Heavi mag blends but going to test Federal blends and Winny XR loads for fun. Already checked daughters gun for youth hunt. She's good to go

I just bought the XR's. Outstanding patterns! At 45 yards, I had 27 and 36 head / neck pellets in the 2 shots I took. I got the #5 shot.

My boy and I are super excited about the youth hunt. This year will be the year of redemption!!!!! (I really hope)

Well, I was planning on heading out this morning, but other plans got in the way. Tomorrow "WILL" be the last time out for this guy. Just hope I can get a gobbler interested in playing the game!!!
