Due to the birds still being flocked up, I think Iím goin to go with the full strut jake and a handful of hens.

Iíd expect the group of 9 gobblers wonít tolerate a newbie.

Not sure if Iíll have service in that specific spot but Iíll update as much as I can!

Setup and ready to go

If birds hold routine, we should have them in the field about 8:00

Logan has baseball practice this afternoon so this will wrap up our youth hunt
