Live From The Woods 2020 Turkey Edition

I ended my day without a gobble heard. The hen came in to the decoys at 30 yards. stretched her neck for what seemed like ages, and no matter how hard I tried, I couldn't get Kaitlin to turn back into Bruce. 

She ate bugs in the freshly tilled field all the way till around 9:30 when I had to leave. She was about 150 yards away and spooked but I had no choice. Not a peep from her or horny tom or jake to be had.

Great job Cynthia and Bill!  Your persistence has been rewarded.  I learned a much better way to clean turkeys by watching this video years ago:

You can easily get the thigh and leg meat without getting into turkey guts.  It's an easy 10 minute process, no more plucking for me.  As with other critters, the sooner you get to it, the easier to remove the skin.  It's better for the end quality also of course.

Out of Likes Today.  This is the 1st day out that, I did not see or hear any Turkey Hens.   Tom's are going to be alone + Gobbling.      Now this Tom was responding most to an old fashioned Double Slate.     After that Tom moved away from me a few Times- Cynthia correctly said-- He is heading for that Hill!  He got to the Trail first and he Gobbled. Right on time. Cynthia went forward and set up off that Trail and , I stayed where, I was.  I knew if, I Cutt-- he would drift to Cynthia. That is what happened! I saw him stop at 80 yards and look in my direction and he marched straight ahead to Cynthia. I was yelling in my head-- Go To Cynthia!  She made a perfect shot!    That was her 10th time out.

That's what we call around here a " victory Lap"

 

Nice work on your first LB !!!

 

But, we all knew when hunting with the white ninja, billy the turkey Slayer, you were guaranteed a bird.

HA- No more name changing for me ( for awhile). I think, I have the record followed by Rob/ Dirttime.   By the way-- where is Dirttime?         No TurkeyMaster here. That goes to the Ol TurkeyMaster of the NC Smokey MTS.

Excellent job Cynthia! Way to go Bill. I went out yesterday with my youngest son . Beautiful weather but no bird wanted to talk , very quiet covered a lot of ground so I got some exercise and fresh air. My nephew stopped over so the three of us did some work on some deer stands. On his drive home he hit a buck with his brand new 2500 Silverado. Quite a bit of damage . Sucks
Good luck to all.

Concrats Cynthiafu ! and great job Bill! 

I had 1 going yesterday at first light, gobbled 20+ times and walked away from me. I never got as close as I wanted because i was pretty sure he was roosted on the side of a ridge opposite me and i would bump him if i tried to get any closer. I went to my blind on a field edge as they frequent this field. Stayed till 9, had 1 lone hen come out and feed for 20 minutes. I think Bill is correct,  the hens are starting to hit the nests. At 10:30 I started to head back to the roost site and I got a gobble, he was already there! I called him close, not "IN" as he went 80yds below me. He gobbled 2 more times there so i scratched leaves and waited, next time he gobbled he was heading back to the roost site. So i moved in that direction, he gobbled again ahead of me so I set up and did some soft calls and waited till 12, he never gobbled again? Oh well, best action I've had in days! I couldn't believe it was noon already!

Going to visit my daughter in Baltimore so i don't expect to hunt again till next Wednesday. I''ll get my fix by reading this blog each morning. Good luck people and keep the stories coming!
