I saw a group of 6 gobblers and hens lay down in the middle of a huge field today after they noticed me coming on my side x side. Once I passed they stood up and took off running toward the woods. That was pretty neat. Maybe their brain is a little bigger than a pea after all. 😁

Think about ... how much data they store on a 1 terabyte Micro-SD card in your phone. Gives a better appreciation of how much data a turkey can store with a pea size brain that probably has the storage capacity of 3 micro-SD cards. :rolleyes::oops: Actually, I'm not surprised they're outwitting all you guys at all.:p😂;)

We're tryin. In this same spot on youth day we had a tom and three Jake's battling. My daughter had gobbler fever and emptied her quiver, hitting nothing but brush. In practice she never misses. The longbeard she saw opened her grouping considerably.😂🤣😆

Had the perfect setup this morning. I had 4 gobblers on the inside corner hillside on the Roost. I had a strutter decoy out and hen decoy in the feild about 20yds. In front of me. All of these birds were above me with a perfect view of my decoys probably 100yds. from them on the roost. I'd say 2 of them went up the hill, 2 of the Other ones came to the fields edge. Put it this way they had little interest in my decoys, and walked 300yds. To the bottom of the field where i watched that gobbler yesterday. Only gobbling to a woodpecker hammering a hollow tree right behind me at times. By 9am. I was soaked from blowing rain. I had fun anyways, Maybe tommorow....i got a text from a fellow hunter friend of mine he missed 2 today with his Shotgun he's looking for answers....lol.

It was raining here all morning and it's still raining...we called it off until tomorrow morning....hopefully it won't be raining. If it is. I won't be able to make it out again until next week.

They will respond to a lot of noise but if you respect their ability to see even the smallest of movement, you’ll do well.

Hunted a section of Delaware State Forest this morning....only one other vehicle parked across the road..got aways back and forgot to put ammo in my vest! 😧
Hustled back to the truck then back out..
Heard two quick shots early but distant.
Heard one bird light up around 645-7..just once and he was a good ways off.
Heard two more quick shots around 830, again way in the distance. I sat and called sporadically till about 10..then the 2 hour drive home as I had a foot therapy appointment..just started to drizzle as I was leaving.
Saw a few vehicles driving very s-l-o-w-l-y.. figured they were probably road hunters..
Back at it again tomorrow!!

Sounds like you're day started like mine, as I was taking my charger ccd off when I grabbed the knob it fell to the ground, I thought Wth. So then I had to grab it by the threads to get it off. Well when I got it off and let go of it the pin and spring went flying, I found the knob and spring right away but didn't find the pin till about 8 am. So yes Duke we do have lots of excuses....... I would say that's why i didn't get a shot today....lol.

Not dealing with natts yet here, but it started to rain prety steady right at daylight here thismorning. I didn't hunt in any of my blinds thismorning even though i knew rain was comming. I wanted to be closer to them on the roost this morning. Maybe get in a blind tommorow, supposed to rain again here tommorow.
