DPD 2016 Hunting Journal
« on: May 03, 2016, 01:12:50 PM »
Went turk hunting yesterday and today. Yesterday was a wet day with pouring rain and we needed to be in my partners 2 man blind.  We heard 3 and possibly 4 gobblers on the roost before daylight when it was just misting and my partner saw a gobbler when the rain let up for just a few minutes in an old corn lot. They all shut up just at dawn or with the one in the field that didn't want anything to do with us. A coyote tore into our decoy setup unexpectedly and by surprise. He didn't like the taste of the decoy and tore out of there .  Today we heard nothing all day it was extremely Foggy and it didn't lift till 9 to 9:30 but as we were leaving at the end of the hunt we saw a big gobbler at the end of the cornfield we were parked in but legal hunting time was just over and as we were pulling onto the main road the field across from our place there was a lone hen in it.  So at least we did see something.  I won't be hunting for 1 1/2 weeks due to a trip to Baltimore to my son's house but I'll get back at them when I get back

That happens once in a while.  Of course, that can all change very quickly!

Been crossbow hunting and no deer so far but the turkeys are still roosting on top. It's a beautiful bluebird morning

Crossbow hunted again today and saw nothing but really a not so nice day, a lot of wind, but, put up 2 ladder stands for the opener in a week from tomorrow, so tomorrow I'll try it again .  a cold front is coming thru and the rut is just starting here so hopefully a cold brisk morning hunt @--0--0118

No reports since rifle season opened, guess that's not a good sign!

been real busy and kind of slacked off on my journal but the rifle season has been going along roughly ;D crossbow went with nice warm fall weather and then rifle came in with rain, severe snow storm and more rain.  My son and I persevered  and he was successful last Friday with a nice eating buck ( 6 point) I haven't had any luck getting them close or seeing them.  Lots of deer left and I still have some time, the weather has been rain , rain and more rain.  very muddy and cold, damp and really not nice.  I am waiting for some freezing weather so I can get back to where I need to go and not be in a mud slide --7-8-9   I will update this if I get out again.  Thanks Viking 1204 for reminding me to keep up the information line that all of us here a TH have. @--0--0118
