Saw three jakes over the weekend. Thats been pretty much the extent of my scouting is driving to work. Cant get into my spots because of either flooding or deep snow, mud you name it. Hoping it starts to dry up a bit soon! Until then ill keep puttering with making calls!

And so everybody knows...my goal this year is to harvest a turkey with my ten year old son. Been trying for close to 5 years and it nevers happens. So if a jake pops out and hes with me...jakes going down!

Another good day of scouting. They had Lock Jaw pretty much but the big flocks are breaking up and I did see Toms strutting and now in packs of 2 or 3 or 5 and even hens in single digit bunches.
All waking on the dang frozen tundra!
But hey I found 3 huntable spots for my Learn to Hunt program this Saturday. Ya I know it takes away a chance at a nice bird for me......but I hunt when the dumb ones are all gone!

And with this winter - the early birds will be light wt. Let them fatten up a bit!

Did some scouting after work yesterday. No tracks or any sign in my usual hot spot. Still early yet.
