Is he learning to call them up now Bigfoot or is he just setting up in your fields where they normally feed at?

Calling. Use decoys sometimes. Run and gun proves to be a waste. I think it's how I run is the problem.

Got this one this morning. 18lbs, 11" beard. Probably the smallest one I've shot yet.

Anyone else having any luck this season?

The Turkeys reappear here in full force before april and fizzel out after breeding through the end of May. Heard some gobble in the creek this morning. I will see some in the fall when bow hunting in big flocks and once in a while throughout the rest of the year I might get 1 or 2 on my camera at the deer feeder. I figure they go nest and hide out, hard being a ground bird with hogs, coyotes, bobcats and everything else... Even though they roost in the trees. I dont hunt them anymore, they are too easy, I road up on one this year on my 4 wheeler with my daughter. We stared at it for a minute, 20 yards away. Biggest on I have ever seen. He just looked at us for a while and shuffled off. The sport in Turkey hunting has been lost for me.

These are some of the turkeys of years past. Thought about selling guided hunts this year.
