How is your turkey season going?

Alabama turkey season is about to wind down and I am OFER! (that means Zero turkeys killed for all of my attempts). Weather and a lot of bad luck... I still have one week left though   ;)

WOW, Nice new sight.. Heard about this from a buddy.... My Bama season was pretty dang good. Birds gobbled from opening day through the season. Killed 4 out of 5... Called in the most I ever have.. 11 birds most of them 2 years olds... Hope next season goes as well, but we all know that is never the case..

I'm behind the power ball on this one.  First time out, first bird down.  Went several times after that.  Both Myself and my friend Brandon are serious beginners.  I felt very confident with my yelps, but unsure on doing the purrs.  But on a good note, I have between now and next March to practice.  I've downloaded several .wav files of turkey calls and have been trying to mimic them.  Funny thing, my wife seems to be a natural on the call.  I'm am still trying to convince her to come to the woods with me.  I know she won't shoot one with a shotgun, but hey I can always get her to video it!

Clucks are big here. It seems as our birds get a little tired of hearing hunters yelp at them so some soft clucking seems to work well. I know some hunters who never make any other call than a cluck.

Alabama was ok.  Texas was great even though I did not get a bird.  I did see some monsters killed though. I did get my Osceola this season in a great hunt that I called up 3 long beards and put the smack down on the one of them.  I just need to get that Meriam and one slam down and many more to go.

Thanks for the input on clucks.  I can relate to what you are saying.  The morning I got my first, we spent the next 4 + hours chasing back and forth.  I don't remember doing anything but yelps, purrs and an occasional gobble.

What I need to learn is when to do what call.

I was told by a very wise turkey hunter that when in doubt, do a single cluck evey 20 minutes. I have seen that work a lot.

mine starts on monday 10/6 and runs through 11/8.  good numbers of birds on my property this year and i assume if the coyotes and raccoons haven't wiped out the nests earlier etc. should be a good fall.
