Indiana Youth Season
« on: April 17, 2012, 11:40:02 AM »
Well the Indiana youth season starts this weekend, April  21 & 22. I never hunted turkey until last year when my son asked if I would take him, always wanted to hunt them but just didn’t have any place to go. However last year we got a place to hunt for one bird only and he got a jake the 2nd morning out.

This year I have a farm to hunt all to ourselves, but not many birds. I have only seen six so far from a distance while trying to figure out what they are doing. This morning I moved in for a closer look and what I thought they may be doing.

I think I guessed right because at first light had two gobble their heads off about 75yds in front of me. I am sure they hit the ground and started to gobble more and then I heard a hen about 200uds to my right and farther back in the woods and I think the two that was gobbling must have ran 200mph to the hen by how fast their gobbles left and went to the hen. LOL I never seen them since they were still in the woods so since I now know where they are roosting I just back out.

Went back to set up the ground blind for us, my son and I, to set in Saturday morning at 11:00a.m. today to see two toms out in the field. Hoping for the best and that Saturday morning once they hit the ground and I will give a soft yelp or two, set back, and hope they come in running like they did today to the real hen.
The one tom has at least a ten inch beard. My son already told me that if he gets that one he wants a full body mount of him strutting, but mom said “No way.” So I did like any father would do and told my son if he gets a big one not to tell his mom anything about it until we get the mount back.

Sounds like you've got a good plan. Best of luck to you guys. I've always found it better to seek forgiveness than permission... @--0--0105

Sounds like you have a good plan.  Hope everything goes well.  Looking forward to seeing pics of that full body mount.

opening morning came and went. We got in the blind at 5:15a.m. and was set and ready to go by 5:30a.m., I even took the video camera with us.

Never heard a bird until 7:30a.m. and it was far enough away I could barely hear the gobble. I replied with a few reply call back and in less than a minute he had gobbled four times and each time he was ALOT closer. His last gobble had to be no more than 50yds from us, but inside the woods.

Just at this time my son must of had a tickle in his throat and coughed. Never seen or heard anyone gobble and we sat in the blind till 10:00a.m.

At least that means we get to go again in the morning.

your doing the right thing, find out the roosting area and get close....always get there early and can listen to them when they wake up...it takes them a short time before the jump down and they usually gobble on the roost and you can locate them...years ago I use to use an owl hooter and it worked well before daylight but in NY I think the turks got wise....it hasn't worked well in a few years but I like trying it once in awhile..... @--0--0101  and I hope u score with your son @--0--0118
