Here is a picture of a couple birds that I hunted last year. I was glad to see that they are still around. The look like butterballs to me.

The rain doesn't seem like it is ever going to end here. The birds are starting to gobble a bit. Youth season starts Saturday. I am just waiting for the 21st. Good luck to all.

Sat out Sat. to scout. Arived at the property at 6am, back to there roost 6:15, started to hear a few gobbles about 6:20, they did not get warmed up and start flying down untill 6:45-7:00, I used a owl call 4 times to locate them, when the flew down they went away from the hard woods-two track, They seemed to stay in the pines.... I moved away from the pines to the next fense row and had a flock of 8 with one tom come in from a different direction then the pines, but went that way after milling around in the field.

I think my plan of attack will be to set up in the center of the field next to the pine grove. I have a tent blind I will put up a day or so before season so we can slip in. I think I will use two sets of decoys, one on each side of the blind. Maybe the Pretty boy and hen on one side and a couple hens and jake on the other.

There sounded like maybe 7 or so gobblers on roost in the pines, should be a productive hunt!!

thats cool we are in first so far. Great job guys. I was wondering about how they were going to work more than one bird..... only the biggest gets counted. Keep it up..

Who yet is not hunting?

Yes, they only count the biggest bird. Hoot has killed 3 really nice toms but only the biggest one counts and I have killed an osceola and a rio and only my osceola counts. Our youth seson opens Saturday and regular season opens the 21st. Listend this morning and heard about 25 birds on one of my spots. Went to my other spot(whre I have been getting pics of those 2 big toms) and never heard a bird.
