Looking good!  The grass is getting green, the gobblers are lookin' for love, and hopefully we'll get enough warm days strung together that soon the morels will be popping up too.  Good luck in May!  I'm hoping to get a shot this coming weekend - three days is all I'll get, but the forecast doesn't look too bad.  Thanks for the pix Jala!

Yup, getting to be that time of the year.  I may have a new place to hunt turkeys, but haven't had a chance to do any scouting, and already starting to get the pre-hunt jitters, if you know what I mean.

I said the above then these two showed up..Mr B and I watched them for 30 mins..they gobbled a few times then moved off...I spooked the hens 1/4 mile away across the road this am...only one cam caught them ..with just one pic...the Moultrie.... 3 cams in that area covering what I thought was everywhere...lol apparently not! the day was today...the time was 11:00 a.m. looks like I need to get closer to where they fly down..they never gobbled until 11:30a.m....hunting closes an 12pm each day...lol

Best of luck to you on both fronts...I just watched those two gobble across the lease property and over the top of the hill....looks like I better get close to fly down or they will be another's prize.So many hens and only these 2 seem to be around. I know they are covering a huge  area every day.
