Dropped off daughter. Back in. 112 minutes to get er done. 82 degrees out. Thermacell , shotgun and vest on and headed in. 

man I haven't had bad bugs all season but i grabbed my thermacell last minute sunday morning and it saved our ass. We were getting destroyed before we even set up even sprayed down with permethrin. That thing was god's gift to turkey hunters and stream fishermen.

Best turkey hunt of 2022, even without a shot fired. 

Had a trio of Toms come within 60 yards of me and would not commit to my two hen decoys.  Another 20 yards and I would have swung on them.  There were in the field for a good 45 minutes before they got that close, so they were not spooked.  They stayed on the far side of the field and eventually met up with 2 more hens.  They all fed for half an hour or so, and then went back into the woods.  I circled around and found them in an uncut alfalfa field with just their heads barely above the grass.  I snuck in within 50 yards but had no shot on them.  They again wandered off and I never saw them again.  

I did see a young buck with horns sprouting up above his ears, so already looking forward to the next season. 

 

Congrats to @WNY Bowhunter - way to make it happen!!
