WI day 2
« on: April 16, 2015, 05:45:26 PM »
it was real slow today. I just don't think there are a lot of birds down there. bird flu? I did find 1 dead and eaten so who knows

the day started off great. remember those woodcock? well they weren't moving today so I put down the gun  for a second and shined the light on one and caught it(I was ahead of schedule so why not) he got the last laugh and pooped on my. once he calmed down and I didn't notice and tags I ate him. just kidding, I let him go.

as for turkeys. one hen early. gobbling only until 7 AM. they were closer today though. at 11:30 I had a raspy hen squacking in the next valley and a tom answered once w/ her. I let out a call to try to bring her over and got cut off very close. no idea where he came from. I purr and he cuts me again. he comes charging. JAKE. for 5 minutes he pummeled my jake decoy. I was hoping the commotion would draw the others plus I wasn't sure it was him that gobbled. he sounded bigger. after that he went to the hen decoy. for 10 minutes he was doing unmentionable things to her. finally I figured he would ruin it so I tried to scare him off. I had to get out of the blind and walked within 10 yards before he left. all I can say is he was exhausted. very funny

tomorrow is another day.

Keep at it! You know the routine, just when you think nothing will happen, all of a sudden he gobbles so close the hair on the back of your neck stands up!
