Not really from the woods, but head my first gobble from the new house this morning.  Had 8 jakes coming in to the bird feeder past week. Now there's only 6.  Something or someone got 2 of them.

Possibly that Jake Flock was scattered big time by Coyotes. There could be one Lonely Jake out there Looking for his Brothers Tomorrow.:yes:

Started with 8.  3 days later, yesterday, 6. Today, 5....

Keep looking. I don't think Coyotes could take out 3 Jake's in the open + Leafless hardwoods. 

I agree. They might be in someone's freezer.  Fisher cat possibly.  

3 gone in 4 days seems odd.  

Jake's don't like to be alone. They stick together like glue.

Getting close to May 1.  Tree guy has been working diligently on my 1187 , cleaning (it was a mess I learned , mounting my Burris fastfire 3   Tightened Samanatha’s saddle mount which was a chore as one pin/ screw stripped and optics wouldn’t lock tight as mount loose. I had camo tape taping front of rail down   He’s been working hard on getting us back on track  Thank you Andrew ! Now we have to sight it my Burris , her new Trulock tube designed for tss 7’s and wait til opener. 

Just spray dyed these clearance pants and light jacket I got few years ago from bargain cave on Cabelas site for about $25 combined.  They were way to light and tan. Daughter skipping school opening morning. Just hope I can finally get her a bird under her gun.  I’ll be listening a few times on dirt we acquired last year to see what I hear.  Can’t wait. Turkey woods is my happy place

Good luck out there! I am already thinking it will be too buggy and leafy and that I am a poor excuse at turkey hunting and will enjoy my one morning I may get out in poor turkey habitat lol!!

 

Pulled a tick out of my arm yesterday after taking down a tree stand. And was fighting off mosquitoes while grilling last night. Its been warm one day wth!

Sightings through the roof today, I’d guess I saw at least 200 on my delivery route. 

Saw these on my way in this morning.

In my happy place ! Scouting mission this morning.  Pretty breezy out here so took the higher ground in thinking birds will be death gripping lower land trees.  Almost full moon so we’ll see how that effects them.  Deer it doesn’t but turkeyss May roost a bit longer. I’ve had them stay up til almost 10 when the moon shining bright like this.

None of these got any gobbles. Gibson crow call sure does sound purty too. Hung a cam up over fox den kid and I found last year. Saw one bird on the way out. 65b358096b7da468c4f2f6e52750d22e.jpgcdb4cb4660002ace4fa386b2148acbf5.jpg1a8b2db207fb45064286313bfc7ff874.jpg
Leeks are popping. Few more weeks on them. 74b7adae350647cb4a7487e74759b710.jpg

No gobbles yesterday but set two blinds for the opener .......leaks popping all over the property as well.
Through out a few cams and put boots to some new adjacent property we gained permission to hunt.
Clear Creek which cuts through our lease was ranging but did find a few spots that should be holding fish.d4b9609403e404d420262673793e1c01.jpg

Parked the truck ,these hens walked up , later carrying a 17 foot ladder stand walked to within 35 , 40 yards of this Tom and hens in a wide open field . That’s why I don’t hunt them , no challenge.
