Turkey Update

I spent 3 days last week in the turkey blind. It seemed that the Gobblers were pretty HENNED up. What I mean by that is they roost with the hens, they feed with the hens and they follow them all day long. The challenge this presents is trying to call them in. They just won't leave their flock of hens. Since I was hunting with a bow I had to try to get them to come to me. I focused on calling to the hens in hoping that a Gobblre would be in tow, which doesn't always happen. I feel that the weather has delayed the nesting by a couple weeks. Due to snow still on the ground the hens don't seem to want to build a nest. The next couple of weeks could be very productive as the hens leave the Gobblers to lay their eggs. This leaves them lonesome and easier to call in. I plan to get out over the next couple of weeks to get a shot at a Gobbler.

HUNT SAFE HUNT HARD AND RESPECT THE OUTDOORS.
