I had a jake standing in my driveway on my vacant lot today when I went to feed my fish some breakfast. That 3 out the last 4 mornings there were turkeys out there around 8 am in the same spot. Predictable!

Well he has hung around... Went after him today.. Gobbled his head off on the ridge top... At least 40 times... Never heard him again after fly down... Must of went over the hill the other way.. I sat tight, didnt call and hoped Id win the 50/50, but of course he went the other way..

Today was my first morning out... The evening before opening day I was fighting off a sinus infection and my 7 month old was up in the night, so I slept in.. BIG MISTAKE... Saw a big old gobbler right out in front of my blind on the way to school at 8... Was hoping he did the same thing as yesterday but didnt.. I am going to try the other side of the hill and my dad is going to stay put on the nearside.. Hope he walks in front of one of us.. How is it going for you guys so far??

My son got a real nice bird Saturday morning at 7:25. I called this bird in from about 1/2 mile away and he shot him at 15 yards.

I passed on 3 jakes Tuesday morning and never had a tom to work on for 4 days straight. I hope to get out a little this weekend.
