Well I went out on Sat morning very early-- I was walking in at 5:15am-- I was excited to be hunting should a big tract by myself-- I had high hopes-- I got in a good way on the road and stop to listen for gobbling-- 6am came and went NO GOBBLIN' @--0--0128 nothing!! So I walk some more nothing I found a nice spot and set up an called every 15 mins until 7:30-- I move on down the road set up at 8am and called until 9:30 No gobblin no hen talk no nothing- just crows. I am not discouraged I move on come across a fresh plowd food plot set up at 10am call until 11am- start the long walk out stopping to call every 300-400 yds Nothing!! plenty of skeeters coarse I didn't take my therma cell- I will not make that mistake again. So it was a bust as far as killin a turkey but I had fun and learn about the lay of the land- I'm going back Tomorrow morning for 3-4 hours before work maybe they will be there then.

Sorry you had no luck Blue - a day in the woods beats most other things, so along with learning the land and a little nap (maybe?!) - I bet it was a good day

A piece of advice given to me once in the past was try something you never thought of trying before.Take your favorite turkey call to the woods and go to where you have seen them in the past.Cluck twice then wait ten minutes and yelp three to four times and toss the call behind you about twenty yards where you can't see it and be tempted to call again and wait for the turkey to come to you.Or even better take someone in with you and after you have made you yelps hand them the call and tell them to go home.To much calling can have an effect on not killing one as much as killing one.Remember that you are turkey hunting and not turkey calling.

Went this morning. Nothing!!! I didn't have much time so I set up in a small food plot called 1 time and shut up- The owner said he saw 2 different gobblers yesterday in the field by his pond and they each had 3-4 hens with them at 9am. Today starts the hunt all day portion of our season so I'm going to try a late hunt Thursday from 3pm til dark!! Maybe I can change my luck.
