Well today will be my final day of the 2017 spring season. It's May 29th it's rain pretty good here in Northeast Pa and it's my Birthday.

It's gotten pretty dark and the rain is really coming down. So far my double bull blind has been keeping me dry. It's so dark 6:45am that it will not take a pic of the inside of my blind. I wanted to post a pic of the floor of my blind with my bow.

I had one bird gobble right after day break and all's been quite since.

Sorry about the miss spelled title. I guess I had fan on my mind when I was typing it out.

Rains still coming down pretty good, but it's brighten up some.

I decided with this heavy rain I'm taking the first legal bird be it a big Tom or jake. I past a few jake up earlier in the season.

For the first time in many years I'm not using my trusted rocket hammerhead. As for the life of me could not find them, I had what I thought was 6 left. So I'm using a head that my friend gAve me. I'm not even sure of the name. They shoot good and I took a bird earlier this season with them. Here are a few pic of the head I'm using.

The rain has let up some, so I gave a few soft clucks and then a minute later a few yelps and bam I got a gobble out about 150 I guess. With rain it's hard to tell how far he really is.

From: Jethro

You still in the blind? Radar looks like you're getting dumped on?

From: Teeton
29-May-17
I sure am still in. Rain let up some, but still coming down. I was a little windy earlier but that calmed down.

Had what I think is two birds gobble down below me. Heard one and then 30 seconds later anothet one below,, but to the west.

Well this guy came in, but stayed out at 37 yds. I only saw himI at first but then saw a hen above him. The hen moved up into the field above me. Towing the gobbler right behind her. He pay little attention to my decoys.. He may of fanned out for them. He only fanned for 30 seconds then followed the hen.

Here's a photo I took at the beginning of turkey season. One,, I'm to the right about 50 yds of that yellowish Round Tree and in about 60 yds. Two, that field i took the pic from is where the hen and gobbler just went to.

From: Jethro

Leaving work now. Hope tomorrow I get to find out, you got one. Good luck. Looks like rain is about done for north of 84

From: Teeton
29-May-17
Yes Jethro, rain seems to be letting up.

I'm going to get a little more aggressive with my calling. Hopping the hen dumps that gobble from earlier.

Hopping his mine set is more like " one in the bush (that's me calling) is better than one in the field that just dumped me"!!!!!!!

Well, no trophy pic, so I assume you struck out. Sometimes it's hard to create a "love triangle" ! The only times I've been able to kill a Tom that's with a hen, is when I've made the hen mad enough that she tows him into range. There's always next year !

HEY!!! I'm not done yet! I've got couple of more hours left . It's only 10:50 am

Well at about 11:45 I looked to the west side of my blind and catch movement. It's a Jake. So being that I only have till 1pm to hunt, as I have to goto a stupid barbecue with my girlfriend. Evern thought its raining and today is the last day I'll have to hunt as the season closes on Wednesday. I'm gong to shoot this Jake if he gives me a shot.

In this picture you can see my blind in the back ground. I laid the bird down right where he was standing when I hit him. You can also see the tree with I hope the arrow still in it in the foreground.

What's that broadhead you are using?

Well done Ed! Congrats! Always a nice way to end any season!

From: RonS

Congrats Ed. Well, I guess that proves it..... it is the operator of the bow and not the broadhead that matter most. Congrats on sticking it out through the lousy weather and filling your tag. Looks like some good eats.

Thanks everyone.

Now that turkeys over, what do I do till the next season..

I guess I'll have to wait for the United Bowhunters of Pa 5c hunt that they put on in the middle of September. That hunt is just a blast. 60 plus guys and girl camped out that all have a love for bowhunting. I don't know of anyother group hunt like that anywhere in the USA. Ed

All I got was lots of mosquito bites.

Congrats!
