Hey guys, I'm checkin in. Season opens next weekend (4/12) in VA where I do my hunting. Unfortunately it 5 hrs from home, but I plan to get down there for a few long weekends. We;ve been seein them up home too, so I might manage that a few morns.

This will be my wife's first year of gobbler chasin, so I may not get much time behind the bow, but I'll do my best.

Watched 2 toms struttin last weekend... its gettin good.

I have a new hunting partner,took a neighbors kid on his firstyouth turkey hunt today. After waiting for some severe thunderstorms to pass at 6:45 we were walking to our first setup it was a bust. 1 tom 3 jakes and 4 hens roosted last night went in the wrong direction this morning. Second setup 3 jakes came gobbling their heads off from about 100yds out,we got our first look at them at 25yds but they were behind some brush still coming in. Jarred and I were setup a little awkward in a stump pile with his back to my shoulder. He was shaking like a leaf in the autumn wind,I was whispering in his ear trying to calm and coach him. I let the birds clear the brush a couple yards then while he tracked the lead bird with the gun,just as I whispred take him Jarred's tired and trembling hand slipped on the shooting stick dropping the barrel about 6 inches. All 3 birds now at 15yds came to attention and froze. I whispered pick one and take him but Jarred's adrenilin soaked arm was a noodle as he fired a load of #5's just in front of the nearest bird's feet. My new best friend turned and said "Dang I missed but this is awsome." After about an hour cool down for my buddy I asked was he ready. He said "Not to go home." Third setup lone jake with 5 hens 500yds out, after some sweet talk on a Mountanside-Raspy Mtn Cutter he broke away from his girls in a dead run toward us. We were setup in a little pocket 10yds off the side of the field , our eager prey came 485yds only to lock up behind a bush(no shot) then he turned and walked away. I don't know what spooked him,I don't think it was us but my shooter handled it like a pro. Fourth setup we decided to do a little blind calling on the edge of a large pasture. After about 20 min we spotted 2 white noggins coming over a rise 80yds out then they droped back out of sight. Then the threatning skies opened up a small downpour,after 30-45min of soaking rain my now vetran hunting partner told me he was getting cold. I stood up to check,the birds were still there. I told my buddy this is your hunt you call the shots. He said "We'll leave them for next time" As the downpour soaked us on the 1/2 mi walk to the truck I agreed with him,next time! On the ride to his house he thanked me and said"I'm wet,I'm cold,I'm tired and I'm ready to go again as soon as I get dried and warm. Turn the heater on please." Had him home at 12:00 the rain continued so we ended a great day chasing turkeys.
