Got a shot at one Friday morning with my bow.   It was a Jake with a small beard. I misjudged the yardage and shot underneath him.

I saw 3 more turkeys over the course of the day, but none would come in close enough to get a good look.

I actually think I like turkey hunting more than I like deer hunting.  As far a seeing birds, this has been my best year to date.

I'll be back out tomorrow (Sunday) for my last attempt of the season.

I finished my season up last night.    I rained in the morning but turned nice and I actually stripped down to just a t-shirt and jeans in the pop up blind by late afternoon.    Despite the good weather I only saw one hen the entire day.

Despite the fact that it rained every day I hunted, I still had fun. I saw turkeys every day I hunted.

I feel bad for those that have the early May season.    There is a lot of standing water in the woods right now, and I saw my first few mosquito's of the year yesterday.    Don't forget those Thermocells!!!

All in all it was an awesome season.

Tell that to Hunt Master and he'll smile like a madman!  ;D I think he's of the same mind and would choose turkeys over deer if he had to. I'm just thankful I don't have to make that choice!  @--0--0123
