Scouted my public area by St. Louis. I can see the arch from the island. Put in 6 miles and found quite a few tracks. Busted 2 mature toms. Am here working all week, and will return for more scouting Saturday morning. Really nice cool hiking weather.

Are you hunting private or public?

Went to my place yesterday afternoon and discovered I had another mature longbeard. Now I have seen five 3 yr. old + birds and two 2 yr. olds. I haven't seen this many longbeards around my property in 25 years. Life is good.

Picked up two Wisconsin leftovers so now I got 2 early season Illinois tags and 3 late season Wisconsin tags. All are good. The WI tags are so cheap for NR I always go heavy on them. Will work in my schedule around these to get my travel expenses paid for. Love my job. Hunt mornings, work afternoons.

JS, it all starts for me Saturday also. It's looking pretty good right now. Good luck to you and the rest who are hunting.

I ended up calling for a friend who had never turkey hunted. I called one off the roost and he flew into a tree nearby and checked out our set up. He hit the ground and started strutting at 40 yards. At 35, my friend moved or something and the bird spooked. I could have shot him, but that is turkey hunting!

Had to go check 1 camera tonight, 6 longbeards!!! I couldn't believe it, been several years since I've had the amount of birds I have.

Good luck to all the hunters this weekend. I hope Jr shoots straight this weekend.
