Live From The Woods 2022 Turkey Edition

All of you fellas that don’t like to or want to get up early the 9-12 shift is when I’ve killed probably 3/4’s of my turkeys. After the first week or so I rarely can get myself up before daylight.

The guy that lives behind my spot kills a Tom every year ( including opening day this year ) , he hits the woods around 9:00 . Well the coffees down I’m hitting the hot tub with a Yeti full, you guys have fun out there !

Every day is better and better, another morning if multiple gobblers all around me, I almost wish I didn't punch my second tag...... almost.

Things I learned, be aggressive, don't be afraid of public land, always have fun and be aware of your beautiful surroundings!

If I can make a few days near the weekend I am Pennsylvania bound. Hope I never forget these days in the woods or take them for granted.

I’m not really feeling it this year. I only lasted two hours this morning. I’m going to wrap it up for this season.
Good luck to everyone still hunting.

Hearing birds ? Not hearing them brings ambition down fast. I get it

Not a peep and I see them in my travels. I spent a lot(to much) time on two birds that where roosting on my property. They did make a sound except while roosting. On the state land not one gobble. The thing that gets me is there’s no pressure up here from other hunter’s

Some times smart birds don't gobble much. Gotta hunt sign and historical movement. It's a different type of hunting but it kills big birds.

Disagree. Alot like myself like to show what we have taken with a full picture of the Hunter next to the Gobbler.

  As time goes on- the picture of the Gobbler becomes less important and the person or person in the pic becomes the focal point.

  I understand  that many are very Bashful at revealing their Face.

 In that case- I dont think the Game- Deer,Gobbler,etc should be showed at all. 

 Just cheapens the picture to see " a Hand"-- " cut off Face",etc next to the Game.

  

I disagree. A mug as handsome as yours would take way from the glory of the animal. What's most important is to show what you'll do with the harvest. A picture of the field dressed animal or of the meal you're making is what matters most as it demonstrates the ultimate goal of the hunt.

The ultimate goal of your turkey hunt was to eat it? Cut it out.

Not a deflection. A minor disagreement. I will post what I want and Bill will post what he wants. We can get into the nitty gritty of the identity politics (or conspiracy theories) once we're out of tags to fill or on June 1, whichever comes first.

I would not wake up at 4am and walk into the woods in camo and a turkey vest without a shotgun (although I have a funny story about that which I'll share if we ever grab a beer). There are so many aspects that I enjoy about it, but yes, the meal at the end is what brings it all together to make it hunting.

Of course you disagree- LOL!

I am such a baby sometimes with the drama, I'm too sensitive to you guys picking all the time. Apon reflection you guys are a bunch of funny genuine bastards. We can agree to disagree and that's ok too. 

P.s. I wouldn't want to shame you all with such a handsome guy holding all of these killer trophies, it would really bring down the mood, and as it is you turkey hunters are dropping like flies in end of week 2 beginning of week 3.

I don't think it has anything to do with one being bashful.  Some do like their privacy, especially on social media.  

If someone wants to only show the game they harvested, then all the glory is on the game, not shared with the one who harvested the game. Nothing wrong with that. 

If you don't like those type of  pics, don't post them. But don't knock those that do. 

Looking forward to seeing a pick of your big tom with your face chopped off...:drinks:
