This morning only had two gobbling on roost. Unfortunately I dont have access to the property they were on, so I have to try to call them too me. At 715 I swear one was coming. Then for some reason he did an about face and was gone. Had one other randomly gobble by my house, but he never came out either. Occasional gobbles until 9am from other directions.

I was hoping be able to pull one over since the hens just seem to be breaking up, but it looks like its going to be another long spring off playing chess with them

Hunting turkeys is like playing chess....
.... But it's 3D chess... And you're blindfolded... And the other player has all queens

I hit my blind at 5:40 to gobbling birds, watched them hit the field about 6:30 at 300 yards away gobbling but going the other direction. I get out of my blind and do a huge stalk around to get a few hundred yards in front and I get setup and they're calling and coming and they turn and start walking back. I walk up the hill to see them as they're heading back where they came. I walk down to see what spooked them, other than probably me walking up, find a couple guys 20ft off our fence on watershed property. Better luck next time for both parties

Beautiful morning , warm very slight breeze . Not much gobbling at all . Around 730 heard a bird and pulled him to me then he just stopped . He was close , guess he was waiting for hen to come to him. We talked for about an hour before he left . Was a good time though . Other than that heard 1 other gobble and heard only one shot today. Nice day though, back to work tomorrow ughhh

Scared a hen walking through the woods this morning, and we decided to put out our decoys and sit still for a few. Had three jakes come in about 10 minutes after. Two flew out. That's my first turkey, on my third hunt.

I was out until about 8:30, had multiple gobblers going early but not real close. They stopped making noise about 7:00 and I didn't see or hear any after that. Had a nice red fox come walking up about 10 yards away and he was wandering the woods around there for a while. I suppose that didn't help my chances for a bird with the fox in the area.

Went to the shore today. Never heard a gobble, but had 5 hens come in around 0630. Sadly that was all I saw. When I was leaving this evening, they were all over the place. Probably going to regret not sticking out the weather tonight and hunting tomorrow.
