Default Karla goes after her 1st turkey - LIVE

We rolled into camp yesterday afternoon in Menard County and jumped on the Can Am to try to spot some birds.



The lease looks great with all the new growth green grass and tons of deer running around. I snuck up on my feeder to find 4 big boars there and popped one. He dropped but was kicking so I put another one in him and to my surprise he jumped up and ran off. I went back and grabbed the Can Am and went looking for him, expecting to find him 20-30 yards past where I shot him. Well, I come around some brush and he charges me so I side step as he runs right past me. He stops at 15 yards and turns back toward me, so I put another in him to finish him. It was wild.




This is my first spring on this lease so we are going in pretty blind on where the birds are going to be. I moved a popup in an area I think there should be birds for us to start in the morning. The plan is to run and gun and see where the birds take us.

Let’s go!

The MoultrieMobile is picking up some birds coming into a blind we call Money Maker. We may make our way over there later this morning.

Please get this done quickly so you can start posting pics of the real food you two will be enjoying. Pop tarts and diet dp are not the norm!


Good luck to you both! Shoot one in the face

Just had a lone hen come through the setup, but no gobblers in tow. There’s a light rain falling now so hopefully that has the birds lock jawed.

Other lease mate is covered up in birds but can’t get them to commit so far. We moved up north as well. First call session about to happen.

You caught us. A lack of gobbles and bacon in the fridge has us back at camp eating breakfast sandwiches.

You ain’t kidding. I like to ride around and drink beer to much.

We worked the South pasture but all his quiet. We are going to try to work the birds up north after while after some rest. My lease mate worked several groups up North and had a misfire on a big bird.

It’s cold and drizzling so hopefully it clears up.

I have my decoys in “bad weather” position tucked close to some cover. If the turkeys come from where I think they will, they will cross our face to get over to them.

Thanks to google for “hunting turkeys in the rain tips.”
