Not a peep heard. Saw a giant raccoon that looks like it had cellulite. I am thinking it will be a slow morning tomorrow, but at leats I will get you early and fall back asleep in the woods.

Lost a glove too, so at least I can hunt for that tomorrow.

Any tips on hunting after a storm goes thru..... Might try to sneak in a hunt between storms.  It is pouring here now and a bit of lightning.  No fishing so hoping for a couple of hours of turkey hunting.

First gobble at 5:00 on the dot! Earliest I've heard yet! Thunder and lightening in the distance, just a bit south, moving west to east. Hope it stays south!

Crap! Power blinked out overnight and the alarm didn’t go off. I just woke up with the light of the day coming in the windows. I moved my blind yesterday to just across from where they were roosted yesterday. Assuming they’re roosting late like yesterday so no way to get to it without getting busted.

Looks like a later start AFTER I work up a plan B for the morning.

Didn’t even get dressed and there was one gobbling his head off out back change of plain halfass ran out and set up. I could see him up in the tree. After he flew down I yelp a few times, but there was a hen in between us she came in he didn’t. Then the sky opened up he was ripping to every thunder clap. He’s on the other property I don’t hunt but nether do the owners. Drying everything and heading back a little more prepared.

Slept through the 4 am alarm, but out in time to catch the sunrise. Beautiful morning in 3G. Not a gobble heard. Neighbors rooster and crows provided all the background noise.

Got into a war of words with a raspy hen. She finally had enough and came in to kick my ass. Was hoping she brought a Tom along with her but no luck. She hung around for a bit till she realized there was no hen and putted off.

On to soccer games. Best of luck to all out there.

Bingo !!   Tagged out on Canuck gobbler #2 this morning....Vital stats, 21 pounds, TWIN 9 1/2 inch beards and spurs 1" and 1 1/8 "...

He was with two  hens and a BIGGER ( body size) gobbler..The dominant bird stayed glued to the hens, but this guy came in to check me out...After I shot him, the big bird and one of the hens came over to check him out as he was flopping,..They stood forty yards from me ..That gobbler has HUGE..Big body, big head..Beard looked average, but it may have just looked that way because his body was so  big..

Well they'll shock gobble to thunder 100% of the time so at least you'll know if there's a Tom around and a general idea of where you may be able to setup on him

Congratulations!!!  Sounds like another awesome gobbler! Can't wait to hear the stories and see the pics from this trip. Safe travels my friend!

Congrats Dan   You're putting the smack down on birds and making it look easy !

Thanks, Jay...Now and then even a blind hog finds an acorn...This is only the second timed since I have been hunting Canada ( about 20 years) that I have tagged out there and in NY the same year..  Now I gotta go home and cut grass...<<sigh>>...

Nothing today went on 2 pieces of stateland and nothing.   So we drove around to see if we could see one next to stateland and call in out of the fields saw alot of birds but none next to stateland.

Did see any more birds until I walked there was the usual hen in my yard. Now I’m not sure what to do tomorrow. Hunt here or head to the state land. On a good note I found my double glass call I left it in a stick blind last year needs a cleaning and maybe some glue around the edges. Hopefully it still sings.
