Got out to a new property for a turkey hunt this morning. We recently gained access from the owners for turkey hunting on the property, although we previously had access for deer. With the amount of turkeys seen during deer season, we knew there had to be birds and are glad to have access. Gotta say the property owners we deal with are generous folks allowing us to access such a paradise for hunting. We greatly appreciate their generosity.
We began once again at 5 am, and sat along the edge of a corn field which we knew to be a throughway. After the first few calls we had a couple gobblers respond but nothing seemed to be moving towards us. We repositioned within a row of pines next to another field to the north near a gobbler we heard. Unfortunately the only takers we had were a hen and a curious one eyed racoon. Pretty neat to see the racoon get right up close to our decoys to inspect them.
Its amazing the things you see in the blind.
Cheers from the wild,
