I’m more curious about the flavor of the shake then the brass or Tri-pod!!!!!!

Tim Horton’s iced cappuccino. A definite drive thru stop condition for her to get up at 3. Apparently the caffeine does not keep her awake

Been raining on and off all day.   More light rain for tomorrow.  Hopefully, I can call that Gobbler all the way in before that hen arrives. About 6-7 Jake's were running after each other fairly close to Gobbler and Hen. That made those 2 leave faster! If one of those Jake's gets close enough, I might take one .

Had birds gobbling on the roost from 5:15 to 5:50 and one lone gobble at 6, but now nothing. I think they answered my tree yelps once, but won’t answer now. This is getting frustrating now. Hoping those gobblers will swing by later the morning

Me and a different buddy are hunting this morning. Just had three jake's in tight. A long beard is out there answering but hasn't come our way

Gotta beat the feeling to overcall and keep the volume down.  He may come silent   Id run some soft sweet loving purrs every 20 minutes with a simple cluck or two now and then.

Couldn't go to.favorite spot this morn.   My ex BIL is hunting there .  That's ok. Went to close spot on land lease .so far had to move from first spot cause 2 coyotes been flanking me all morn.. Saw a deer in this spot at 15 yards. But no gobbles even.   Give it an hour or so and might have some breakfast and see what the lake has to offer.

If it sounded good it was a hunter. The worst calling is usually hens. But can usually tell the weekend warrior hammering the box call at 120 decibels every 3 minutes. 

Think your right.  Heard it twice now a ways over. Not on our land.

And hey I resemble that remark!  Lol.  Except i wait at least 4 minutes.  Well the coyotes liked it.

Wife informed me I have to take her to breakfast. Then she's heading to her mom's.  I'm thinking I should go look for some morells and leeks.  And while I'm at it I might as well bring the shotgun and a couple mouth calls.  Might catch a long beard looking for love.

Tagged out. I know where these birds roost. The last three hunts I was I tight to them but still flew down and walked off with the hen. I heard these birds fly up last night do I knew pretty well where they were. I snuck in this morning closer and had birds on three sides of me. I Yelp, they would gobble. The hen would Yelp, they would gobble. But when this tonight flew down he came straight to my calling. Then he spotted my Jake and hen and that sealed the deal. 21lbs. 1" spurs and a 8 3/4" beard. You never know what's going to happen. Now it's walleye time. Good luck to you guys. Keep hunting.

Went looking for morells and dig up some leeks late in the morning. The leek patch is near a field the birds like to hang out in.  Few soft clucks, and a tom double gobbled only 100 yrds away. I clucked and purred softly one more time and shut up.   Next time he gobbled, he was on the other side of the field.  Snuck a peek to see him walking slowly away.  Think he's the same tom my cousin missed twice in the same field.  Might have to ambush him as I don't think he's going to come to any calls.

Fields today as it is overcast. Hens flew down and moved away from my decoy. I heard a raspy hen start to yelp- then pops,whistles,other sounds of a bad nature for about 5 minutes . I think that hen got attacked. I have heard coyotes plenty of times and this was different. 1 gobble during this. I am thinking  Fox or Great Horned Owl. I think other turkeys were with the one yelping.

I heard the oddest spine chilling sounds last week as it was just getting light. Thought I heard a fly down , then shrills , woop woop   Lasted a minute. Little while later 3 birds came running fast from that area My only guess was bobcat but likely a fisher on a bird. I’ll never know and really want to know what I heard.

A very dedicated turkey hunter arrived just after me at 3.42am. This hunter bikes in with a huge Blind. Room for 3 men. I have seen him in different Springs. Glad he picked a different huge field. I checked this field on my way out and his blind was set up in a favored back area of a number of Spring hunters-- myself included. I backed out. I give him credit for biking in 1 mile,then walking almost a 1/2 mile to this corner of this huge field.

Most of the time when I hear that type of calls  and then see the  source, it is a red fox...They make some pretty eerie sounds
