Too dang windy to even bother roosting the birds this evening.

I don’t need to put em to bed but I wanted to take Kayden so she could get the whole experience.

I’ll double check one more time but I think we need to be setting and ready at 6:15. 5am wake up is gonna come early for princess

After further discussion, plan is to be set and ready by 6

Birds should be on the ground a little before 6:30 and hopefully we’re playing ball by 6:45

Cameras show these birds flocked up to the tune of 29 hens, 5 jakes, and 4 longbeards.

Decoys will be a feeder hen and the mating pair...I’m hoping the jerk cord and motion is enough to get the toms to break off from the flock.

Decoys will be set at 15 but I’ll let Kayden shoot to 20

Does the mating pair tom have a slot for a fan on it?

Didn’t need an alarm

Kayden’s been up since 3:30. I asked her why she can’t sleep and she said “I don’t know...my brain is just telling me not to sleep”

She’s a little excited

Good luck Kayden!

Work weekend at the lease in the hill country this weekend. Cameras show some of our birds survived the snowpocalypse at least. Got a couple mouthy hens talking I can hear from camp. Only heard two gobbles songs far. We’re North zone so we’ve got a couple weeks before we get to start playing with these birds.

Tough break for Kayden this morning

2 gobblers rushed the decoys at about 9:15 but she couldn’t get a steady shot. Then they slowly walked off but she “couldn’t see the waddles”.

They were fired up and prime for killin but we just couldn’t close the deal.

It didn’t phase her one bit but Dangit I felt bad for her.

We’re back home for a little break but need to be back in the blind by 3:00

Crazy windy after the hunt...poor Kayden couldn’t hold the fan open for the standard LDP

Utilized the old deer blind instead and I think they turned out pretty well
