Live From The Woods 2022 Turkey Edition

Recommended Posts

Over a period of more than 50 years, I have hunted turkeys in six states and one Canadian Province...
I have hunted private land, state land, Crown land, National Forest Land, and State Park Land....
Turkeys are turkeys wherever you hunt them...A few come easy, but you have to work for most of them, public or private..
All  I can say to the people who  claim that private land gobblers are easy, is come up to where I hunt and see how well you do  on these poor ignorant turkeys...

Anyone who claims that are ignorant and hasn’t done it. Anyone who has done it knows that!

Had one sound off at 8, at least a few hundred yards away, answered, been quiet for at least 10 now.  I was just taking a break in the blind after a long walk.  Unfortunately I have to GTFO by 9 to go home and take the kids to a parade.  Only heard 1 Gobbling, so maybe it's not those Jakes.  I'll give it 20 then I gotta start walking.

Took my son on a 1 day run and gun mission in PA yesterday. Saw an absolute pile of turkeys but they just wouldn't cooperate. Son stuck it out and put in the time and the miles, but we couldn't make it happen. Out of the 50 birds we saw we heard only a few gobbles and only 1 bird strutted. Great times, memories made ! I'm certain we will be back there again.

I will say this, I had one of the best turkey hunters I know leading us around AND we had access to almost 10,000 acres of PRIVATE land and no success. Careful when you say private birds are easy......

Came close today on Public! One more day to go. Home- Boxing + martial Arts now with full body weight training before it gets too hot.
Imagine you had access to some private land ! You would be tagged out !!!

I ended up passing a shot on the longbeard that I've been after this morning. Sat out in the front field until just before 8:00 when I got up and walked out to a hayfield that was just mowed. Got right to the corner and see a big full fan out the field about 75 yds from me. So I snuck up on him and he was just out there fanning looking around gobbling. I crawled up to about 55-60. Had a solid rest and he was just standing there in the wide open. The 835/TSS combo wanted to bark but just too iffy. One last try there tomorrow morning

     Got to my Public area and kind of Snoozed in my SUV. Heard a Gobble at 5.12am that brought me to Life.

   I hunt 2 Huge areas and 2 Smaller chunks  of Public. 

   Out  like a Cat- Fast still.

 Got within 80 yards of a Roosted Gobbler. Waited for him to fly down. He loved that Red Cedar Box and,I laid it on him.

  Damn Hen close to him called him down and away she took him- far from her competition.  His Trailing Gobbles confirmed what,I knew.

   Plenty of Hens this Spring in Orange. Maybe too many. They are still very active .

  Cynthia will be with me tomorrow.  Knowledge  gathered today might help her to Bag that Gobbler tomorrow.  

 Heard close and far- a good 8 Gobblers.

Private land gobblers don't even like staying with hens.
