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

7th Day out and,I  am finally on Board!  Had this Field to myself- ( not Stewart).   23lb Gobbler-- 1"+ Sharp Spurs, + a 10" Beard.  Bobbing Hen Decoy was out. Used a " Flydown Fla

Well Larry- probably  the same young Guy as a few days ago because,I  once again heard a " not too good" Owl Hoot. 

  Same as a few days ago- heard a Man made Owl Hoot - saw a Yellow back Tag and of course backed out as,I  was entering Hardwoods.

 This time,I  had a Decoy out and he was coming down the Field Line and Hooting and saw my Decoy.

 Glad he backed out.

   So it was dry and calm until 6.30am. Then a Light rain turned into a much heavier Rain.

  Biked out and now a Driving Rain all the way out.

  My assessment-- Definitely  no Toms were down on the ground yet before the light rain at 6.30am.

   At 7.17am in a now driving Rain and at my Suv,I heard- Boom---Boom- Boom-Boom. First 2 Shots spaced out and the next 2 Shots super quick as in a Bird now in Flight and gaining Distance.

   My Assessment- A Failed Roost Shooting attempt by 1 Hunter.

  

Could also just be shooting at one in a field...

HA- my Brother in law discussed that as well. A fast rain soaked walk out and surprising a Just flown down Tom.- 4 Misses,I  believe.

 Maybe,I  should try Onion Country for my last try tomorrow..

Don't need a plugged gun for turkey. 

Not sure why I thought they had to be plugged??

Too much waterfowl hunting back in the day I guess.

Thinking about some Open Fields out near Pine Island where,I  took that 23lber on May 3rd. They absolutely  dig up those Onion Seeds.

  Maybe,I  will try there for my last Hail Mary Tomorrow. 

 Been a Tough but enjoyable Turkey Season.

Had a chance for one last try today and killed a nice bird. No gobbling on the roost. This bird came to sporadic clucks and my decoy.

Went to Stewart, trying something different using a blind today and the plus side is I’m nice and dry. Last day no gobbles yet but I’m going to make the best of it and enjoy it.ef3f5b08c9920de3ec5fd9eb5c0a16ed.jpg

This old tired body managed to climb the mountain for the last day of the season. Funny when the season just started this mountain was only a hill!!! I guess I am getting old.

8.45am-- Calling it a Season. Was going to stay longer- but 2 hunters entered the Field area.

   32 Total Days in NY+ NJ.

  I enjoyed every minute of it.

 Feel fortunate  to have killed that 23lber on May 3rd.

  And Cynthia almost scored twice.

Leaving this Field now.
