Plan A was a bust, plan B was busted by a trespasser, plan C bed or another spot?

I'd do plan b if they're still making noise. Otherwise I'm already partaking in plan c myself. Tomorrow morning will be plan B

Rain for past 15 mins. All is quiet and nothing's moving ..."Should I stay or should I go now."

Thought I would try something I've never done before. I've always wanted to take one with the bow! Somehow set up my blind within ~125 of what sounded like 3 different gobblers. I could see one on the roost. I thought I was in the money! For whatever reason, they flew down in the opposite direction and wandered off. They must have gobbled 500x, from 5:30-7:30! It sounded like they went in different directions. Never heard any hens calling. I'm sure the one could see my decoys from his roost.82adacb98101dd96e34179495c7172d8.jpg

Just had a Jake come in silent at 50 yards.  No shot.  Was in my little shot hole but too far.  Changed fields.  Gonna make one more move then call it.

Calling it. Gobblers I had roosted flew down and headed over the ridge opposite my direction on private. Heard one shot in distance.

Slow walk back to the house to see if I can locate a roaming tom and then off to the stadium. Paxton sounds like he will hit DL today. Joy.

Had two hens and two jakes in the field. Closest they got was 75yrds.  I was impressed, my grandnephew didn't fall asleep this time.

Bumped a Jake on the way out.  A big Tom in the field across the Rd that I don't have permission for, but maybe next time he will be on this side. 

But.....best of all my Buddy Ed dropped one.  He tags one or two every year.  He's a stone cold turkey killer and is retired and relentless!

Nothing for us.  Really thick fog dont know if that kept them quite.  Kiddo was cold by 8 so we headed out and got some food.  Stopped at parents to see if they heard gobbling in stateland next to them(same one we were in but 1/2 mile away from where we were hunting)  brother said they were going nuts from 530-7. So im going to try there in am before my daughters hunting course.

Sorry for the late post, today is the first chance I get on a computer. 

I called this 1 in on Wednesday morning, took a good friend for his first turkey hunt. 8.5" beard, 7/8" Spurs. He was alone, came in strutting and gobbling. Almost too easy.

The next morning I called in a gobbler with 3 hens, got him to check out my decoys, 35 yds I knocked him down only to watch him get up and run off! I think my shot was low and because I was shooting up hill and he was over a slight crown, I think I shot through the tall grass? This scope/ no scope  decision is going to drive me nuts! Yesterday heard 1 gobble at first light and nothing until around 10 am. Only gave me courtesy gobbles. Great 3 days even though the weather man called for rain, most if the rain came over night or after noon near Little Valley. Taking today off to recharge, going out tomorrow in 9f.

This morning, I walked in at 4.20am. I walked out at my 3rd area around 11.15am.  I managed to sit in the Pre-Dawn-- for 30 minutes on a ridge. I had a Tom 80 yards out Gobbling . Another was 100 yards to my East. Still another was a 1/4 mile away. Raspy Boss Hen flew out 30 yards behind me to the North. I hit some Clucks on my Yelper. The Tom Flew out and landed 60- 65 yards away. Too far for a Shot. I use Longbeard XR. Not comfortable with such a Long shot though. He walked to the Boss Hen. 2nd area was a 1 1/2 mile hike. No Gobbling here. And the 3rd area- also on public land was just 40 minutes. 0 for 10 days now.. Watch  Matt Dale's Video, I uploaded yesterday in the Turkey Forum--- What's Going On Right Now Out There? Matt is having a hard time like me in getting the Trigger pulled. Walked around 7 miles today.
