Unofficially....Live from the woods 2021 turkey hunting thread.

I know my life is pretty busy with spring chores and life opening back up some. But I also know we've lost quite a few members recently including a mod. Place can be pretty hostile, and I'll admit that I can be a part of that, but I do wonder if less of us are hunting woods chickens or if we're just posting less. I can say I'm on pace to have my least amount of sits in and it's mostly just due to being really busy with life. 

I mean. People used to hunt before the internet and social media with no need to post on a forum so they could be just going back to that mentality...

Had a very interesting morning. Snuck into woods early. Looked around and said. That doesn't look like a turkey. Yup, it's a bear. 5 seconds later this bear ran straight at me. I can't post the video

been practicing purs on my mouth call and it's not going so well. I'm pretty good at all the other calls. How long did it take yall?I can get the gargle vibration, but I can't get the pitch.

Belo,I don't  use Diaphragms  myself- but you won't  have time in this season to master those Mouth Purrs.

 I would use a Slate for the rest of this season.

I hunted a new spot in Elma today, I heard more gobbling at first light than I've heard all season. Unfortunately too far away and on another property. So I got close as I could and did some calling hoping they would eventually make it my way. I'm sure I didn't give it enough time but I have things to do so I called it at 9 am. 

And TF , I'm not a live from the woods guy until I shoot one. That's why my posts are always days behind! Sorry

Heard a couple gobbles across the creek on the neighbors property. Chances of me calling one in and making him fly across this creek are slim. During deer season there was a tree that fell across it and I saw a gobbler walk across it but it must have gotten washed down stream. Thought that was gonna be my golden ticket but it's gone. Still just nice to be out!

Heard one gobbling on the next property over. He gobbled ~8x, then shut up when I assume he flew down. Just had no interest in coming over. I sat until 7:00, but packed up and headed out to start working. (OK, working from home, but sitting on my deck AND listening for any gobbling also... :rolleyes:)

Had a big ass coyote at 30 yards looking at me and pacing back and forth in a freshly plowed field at 5:10am. Kind of eerie!

Was on the fence this morning. Got to bed early enough, but a lot going on in life and little restless sleep and a full day ahead so I pulled the plug on the alarm around 1:30. I'm partially bummed at my lack of drive this year. I've had birds all 3 mornings I've been out.

Sunday is the next day I can get out so maybe I'll get it done then. Also need to bring the 2 boys along once so not sure if I wait or take them then. I'm making an effort to drink less and get to bed earlier on non-hunting nights in hopes that helps my energy for the 4am wakeup calls... but the IPA's are just so good in this warm weather haha.

Or we could start the season one month sooner to allow for more time....

I pulled a cam today and had zero birds. Its on a well traveled gas line. My local spot is dunzo. I think nearby fields pulled the birds away

I have a feeling alot of NY Spring Turkey Hunters have packed it in for the Season.

    I personally  think that breeding started much earlier  then usual. The Greenup in my area started much earlier this Spring.
