Turkey Update

Monday, Apr, 29 2013

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.

Is Spring ever going to get here

Saturday, Apr, 13 2013

Well it's April 13 and winter is still wielding it's ugly head. As for turkey hunting the birds are still flocked up and searching for food. I have seen several birds that were harvested this last week and they are skinny. The birds are reacting to the call but having a decoy that you can give some movement to is a key. Maybe you hook up a string and give the decoy a pull just to move it a little. There is still plenty of snow where I hunt in Iola I hope I can get to my spot. I haven't even set out my blind yet oh well. I wish you all good luck if you head out to turkey hunt next week I will be out to check it out.
