After a not easy mile walk, I move on a gobbling roost Tom, and set up 75 yards away. Daylight comes he flies down, and disappears. I then run and gun for 2 hours, and outside of a Hen coming in answering my calls, nada on another gobble. Fricken birds this year are really ticking me off. I need to kill something!

It has been a tough year all around. I think the birds in Southern Mo are just about done. Maybe have 1 more hunt, but season ends Sunday. You didn't let anyone down, its turkey hunting.

Well, back at it Monday and Tuesday in Iowa on my Private. Birds there, but rain all week will make it a bear getting in there to hunt down the farm road. No one has hunted it this year, and farmer has seen 3 nice Toms, so hoping I can get in back there.

Struck out again this morning. Not a single gobble and it started getting breezy and hot. But I will be trying rattlesnake later. Got me a nice diamondback.

Well its over for me, it has been a frustrating season but I would do it again. Jmedenf you have been a great captain and a heck of a team mate. Thank You. I hate to see it end and I'm ready for next season. Jeff

Same in my Iowa spot by the Missouri border, birds done and whole operation moved out of the area to the feed zone wherever that's at. One lone Hen left in the whole area. I still planned on hitting Kansas again, but knee is still screwed up from a fall on barbwire in Kansas, and on my way home my SUV was making a clunking sound every time I was accelarating rapidly. I was glad to make it home without towing.
