Got a hunter coming in the morning. I may try and get him a bird or two if we are lucky and hunt for myself Saturday evening. Sunday morning probably will try them again for myself, then Sunday afternoon will try and get the wifey on a bird. Monday and Tuesday I'll try them again depending on what kind of luck I have this weekend..... good luck to all the hunters headed out!

Pretty quiet this evening. Heard one gobble a couple of times from the roost a half mile into neighboring property. I’m hoping something fires up closer in the morning. It’s gunna be a Hail Mary if there isn’t a closer bird come daybreak tomorrow.

Just got done talkin to PoPo and we have our plan for the mornin hunt.

Weíre goin to try and get the loner Gobbler that we have been seeing. He is the first to hit the field but also the first to leave. After last Sundayís hunt, Iím pretty sure he is an older bird that has been pushed out of the flock.

Weíll setup in the same spot but Iím goin with 2 feeder hens at about 5 yards. Iím hoping this setup will get him within 15 yards for a body shot.

If we donít see the loner by 8:10 or so, Iíll crawl out, add the Jake and get ready to hunt the entire flock.

Sounds perfect, right?

Beautiful morning to be out

They fired up a good 10 minutes earlier than last Sunday. They seem to be roosted in the same spot.

Hopefully our loner makes an appearance here in the next 30ish minutes
