Got out yesterday and put out the Ole strutting Tom deke w 2 hens..the birds gobbled off the roost for an hour then all came running out of the woods onto my dekes at once...I had 6 hens and 3 toms at point blank range and I'm sitting in a folding chair right off to the side.  Talk about intense...my breathing was hard and fast.  I shot the strutter through the neck and into the body...he ran about a 100 yards...shot w xbow...26lbs 10.25 inch beard 1.5 inch daggers...it's like ground hog day...it just keeps happening day after day year after year...now onto week 4

My season starts tomorrow, don't expect much as both grandson's struck out on same land, last couple of weeks. On the bright side my brother found mushrooms this past Sunday.

Saw the bird in the middle of an alfalfa field. Crawled within 25 yards of the bird and that was that.

Was able to fill my tag Thursday 5/7

Shot him about 745 in the morning. Came in with 3 hens and another Tom. Both full strut right into the decoys. Had roughly 6-8 different birds gobbling all morning. Finally got these two to commit. Very cool watching these bird work in!

10 yard shot

9.5 inch beard

19lbs


Attached a picture of the birds toe on one side. I like turkey hunting but it's bass fishing season now!

Nice job with the turkeys guys, nice to see some old timers and new hunters with success!

I always get 1st time period but drew 3rd this year. Filled my tag 5/5/21 at 6:50am. I had turkeys all around from 4:30am on until I shot. This one came into the decoys @ 20 yards with a bigger one about 30 yards. I took the sure thing and I hope to get the big boy in 2 weeks when my 2nd tag comes up. The big guy attacked the one on the ground and then my decoys after the shot. I could see 4 different Toms fanned out when I shot. I sit in a cattail marsh on the edge of an overgrown field that the turkeys love. Perfect natural blind but wet enough to keep most of the other public land guys away. 21.8# and a 10.5" scraggly beard, not much for spurs one at 1" and one 7/8".

Last year it took me 7 days of the first season and 3 days of the 3rd season to connect ( about 50 hours).  This year done in less than two hours, that's turkey hunting I guess.............

Also had a big mink stalk the decoys and stand up on it's back legs trying to sort things out.

 To the guys with tags left don't give up, I shot my biggest bird on the last morning of the season 21 years ago on a cold rainy morning when I should have stayed in bed. It had been a terrible season up until that point..........Good luck all!
