Came back this morning after a productive morning, but no bird in the bag.

Tons of gobbles from the NE and SW had 2 gobblers moving in on me but at 7:45 someone started up an ugly sounding diesel tractor that didnt start on its first go. All was silent after that moment. I got up after another 30 minutes to check the SW field with the binoculars, not a bird in sight.
congrats apps. was out in the mini hurricane thurs morn. lasted the first downpour, saw the ugly sky to the west took out the shells and packed up the firearm in the case just as I was about to get up a hen landed in the coys and the biggest tom I have ever seen landed no 20 ft from me. I swear his neck was a big as my forearm and a very large beard to boot. waited about 5 min to watch both go over the bank to the vally floor below. friday not a gobble to be heard anywhere. oh well better luck tomorrow.

Well binkley........ I assure you it's nothing I am doing , but it's all about the spot and Mrs.apps still has a tag left and I am grounded with out her. She said I only married her for her tag but she will not let me help her out with this one , but as it stand not to brag 4 time out and 3 long beard down (all in the location ).Keep in mind I work straight weekends so if you have a day during the week you want to do some fishing and you are not chasing that HUGE bird around (LOL, you'll get him , good things come to those who wait) I never turn down a day in the great outdoors .............apps
well as for the fishing/ hunting, I work straight days and the weekends are split between the missses and the kids. if you get holidays or ect. let me know and I would love to meet you and your wife to get out on the bay or lake for some fish. as for the bird will have to wait till the weekend and we will see. damn things anyway oh well thats life I still have a few weeks to get the little bugger. let me know if you get some time off and we can meet up for some pike ect. long weekend I am home if the monday is good that could work???

Well ....2 weeks of frustration due to weather! Birds started to gobble once the sun started coming out near the end but they wouldn't come out of the woods.Working the woods didn't pan out as they were pretty wet with all the rain we had and it looks like a lot more rain coming for this weekend ??? Glad we have until the end of May to bag one ! I heard someone shot a 29 pounder ! 26 and 27 pounders were being registered too !

I heard someone in Aylmer shot a 29 pounder , is that the same person ?? That a Big bird !! you still have a couple of weeks to get that long berd , good luck..................apps
I found it a tough year as well especially the early part. I was out seven or eight times with very little activity. Then I got two in back to back hunts. Both nearly identical birds, I assume two year olds, both 22lbs 12 oz, with 10" beards and slightly over 1" spurs. The only difference was the first one was 15 minutes from flydown to dead. The other took over two hours to work his way in. Neither of my boys got one this year.
