Gotta give him credit. He sure is one stubborn SOB goin every day at 4 am. Back in one of my usta spots. You know Usta be good. Did have 3 gobblers going in here a couple days ago. I had setup right within 60 yds of them. They were gobbling like crazy in the trees and shutup the second they hit the ground. Full on filming gear ... no decoys...burlap blind.... its startin yo grow on me!

In a bit I am headed to our farm to hunt tomorrow and Sunday. Had many a days like yours, and some like this last Sunday...

Had toms, jakes and one hen all visible for four hours. Watched the hen get bred. She came into my decoys spread, the toms only closed to 39. It took them 3 hours to come from where they landed off the roost, about 200 yards from me. In the end, same results as you, nutting.

Bright moon when I leave the cabin this morning. I watched a gobbler strut 150 yards from the cabin as I sat on the porch last evening. A hen was walking around and he kept following for 30 minutes, in and out of full strut.

As I leave the cabin, a weak gobble sounds off at most 100 yards away, and very early. I hustle up to where I played with all those turks last weekend, get set up with much anticipation.

Not one gobble! LOL, that's turkey hunting. Thanks for sharing.

You videotape your hunts?

09-May-20
No, I have never tried to video.

Sunny, calm but 50.

I am sitting on the edge of a CRP field I burned in March. Very heavy dew, the grass is 6-8" tall I don't expect them to come out until it dries a little.

GL to you this morning. Those are tough conditions!

Wow! You must love to turkey hunt. At least you have no bugs to deal with. I have pulled gobs of ticks off me this season already.

Walking back to the cabin, a gobbler in full strut half way back. He gobbled twice, that's my total action. Hope yours was better!
