    Got laid off for a week at work so I jumped in the truck and headed north this morning. Raining at home and my yard is under water but not up here in Alcona county, sunny and 74°, nice and dry. Just hit the woods for a little midday action, will see how it pans out !

    Good luck!

    Are you toting the vertical bow?

    Ever had one hang up and refuse to cross the fence?

    Nope, I have the 12 gauge, it’s really quiet, working my way back to where I’m going to sit for awhile, the owner next to me is cutting pines on the property line, not for sure how it’s going to be but he is 300 or so yards away.

    Well that shouldn't bother them. Last week I took the boy out to plant a food plot. We scattered a bunch of turkeys on the drive to the back of the property (they were in an Ag field). They were a few hundred yards from where we worked. When we finished up an hour or so later, the goof balls were at full strut on the opposite side of the property as we drove out! (Not that far away)

    Turkeys, man! Some days all too tolerant and some days spooky as all get-out. You got this! :)

    image.jpg Out again this morning, light rain so I drug the old double chair blind out, the double bull is just to much for one person, therma cell is cranking but it’s all quiet this morning. Forgot my boots back at the house so I’m really limited to where I can hunt this morning, good luck to anyone else out this morning.

    I had a chance at a pretty good two year old, he was strutting and gobbling his head off in a open field , used the trees and the ridge to close ground on him, just got a little to aggressive and got spotted at 80 yards, guess I will hang in there until tomorrow morning and give it another go.

    Sitting on the edge of a field for the afternoon it’s fairly secluded, I have hens feeding all around me, just being patient, haven’t used the call a whole lot

    Got a bird hung up on the other side of some pines, haven’t laid eyes on him yet but it sounds like he has moved to the property next door, I moved in and cut the distance but he has went quiet now.

    I guess the saga ended. For now. Thanks for the entertainment!

    Good luck if you get back out.
