Just finished a couple weekends of deer scouting and saw quite a few birds at one of my IL tag public properties. Full blown gobbling/strutting display by 5 mature toms with 15 hens. Glassed them right from my parking area. There are lots of crop fields there and my strategy is to hike perimeters of the remote fields the day before my hunt, and set up over the most active dust bowls. This has worked well in the past. Likely keep running/gunning to a minimum for a 4th season tag. The toms are far too wary by then. Decoys usually spook them off but never dust bowls! I miss watching them interact with the dekes but that's the reality at the properties I hunt........with the exception on my 1st two IL hunts.

Default Doubtful

Haven't seen a bird in 2 months, got a bad feeling about this season. usually they are out strutting by now. We'll see. On a lighter note whoever wants to step up for team Captain is fine with me. My computer skills are limited...My son gives me a hand when I need to post a picture.

I've been seeing birds on my trail cameras hitting the fields. Hopeful for this season. Hopefully work doesn't get too crazy and I'm able to get out!

Luckily I just retired again so time off is not an issue, nothing to blame failure on but me for now. However I'm thinking up a whole new set of excuses to cover that!
