Great pic!Needed that motivation cause numbers here are spotty but overall down.Scouted again this AM and located a Tom I at least can try to call from some land I have access on.Long shot but all I have so far.Grim.Also noticed an article in the latest issue of Outdoor Life that numbers are down and decreasing significantly in many States for unknown reasons. I hunt coyotes a lot and normally have 5-6 flocks spotted this time of year but zero around here this year.Dam,hope it's temporary! Good hunting to all!

My opening day gobbler from last year. Hopefully I can duplicate that success this weekend. I won't be able to make it out until Sunday but that looks to be the better day weather wise anyway. Good luck all!

Opening morning was great!!! 25 turkeys total. 2 big toms, 3 jakes, and the rest hens all within 6 feet to 45 yards. I ended up shooting one but hit him low and got feathers at 31 yards after sitting in the blind for 3 hours. Fun hunt but ill be sure to be back after him in the morning.

Keep after them AK. Not a good opening weekend for us. Way too windy over here in the east and the birds were not gobbling as much as I had hoped. First year in quite a few that no shots were fired for us on the opener. Good luck all!

This was the first opener i actually flung an arrow. Shot him low and got feathers. Not sure what happened but im hoping to get out this weekend again for some hunting

Ha Ha Ha! Nice birds Leftee! What blind is that? We are in the market for a new one, the 3 amigo's are getting to big!

Skullwerx the blind is my buddies but believe it's his Primos Dark Horse not his Double Bull. For roomy space both would be hard to beat.For about the same space but a lil less $$ the Primos 'Blind Luck'is hard to beat.

My oldest son turned 10 the end April so was able to get a mentor tag. Well I guess Friday the 13th wasn't so unlucky after all!! He was able to make a great shot on a great bird. 10" beard and 1" spurs. Just over 25lbs. Not sure who was more excited, me or him!

Shot this ugly lady today while trying to find a turkey. Saw her crossing the pasture and lip squeaked her in. 20 yard hard quartering to shot. This is the exit side. My first coyote with a bow!
