Fuggers done up an moved on me.. Kind of figured the would once they got with hens. In the strutting pics i got for 4 days (4th - 7th) they didn't have hens yet.

I went out Sunday morning to listen but missed flydown. They sounded off once and sounded to be around the same area. But I checked the 3 cams Sunday evening and only had 1 tom since Thursday. (but i had him on all 3 cams)

No big worries.. I'll find their new strut zone.... They tend to be blabbermouths this time of year. :) Well, that, and they're in only about a 60 acres of woods. They can't go too far. :smiley_crocodile:plus, I can call damn near all the way across it.

I'll be out there listening by 5:45 every morning from now on. They're still there. No doubts about it. :)

They've been flying down around 6:35-6:45 in the morning.. If I want to hear them on the roost, i better be there at 6:00..

5:45 gives me plenty of time to park and walk the 400 yards to my listening post where i can hear them roosted on the other side of the woods.

No real scouting from me yet since it's about an hour away. I've had the cam running in a food plot for a couple weeks so hopefully there's something on there by this weekend. I'm planning on heading down and listening Sunday morning, then scouting/shed hunting all day, and hunting Monday mornin. I can't wait!!!

As long as a specific bird I have been watching retains his pattern, I have a short window of oppurtunity to get him opener. I have been watching him since April 1st.

Then Tuesday its off to a half mile up the road to try my luck on 3 others or out to Joe's farm to help him call if he doesnt get one on opener.
