I agree with Arjuna. "They" say that the Eastern is the toughest bird to hunt. I also hear that Osceola isa tough bird.

Spoke with my dad tonight and he said the birds are gobbling good in Southern Indiana. He is about 200 miles south of me though. It just won't warm up where I'm at. Old man winter is not giving up without a fight.

Tomorrow (Friday) is the opener for me in Louisiana. I can hardly wait. I'm going toTennessee for the opener next weekend and back again the following weekend.The weather is finally starting to settle down some, so maybe the gobblers will be hot pretty soon. Anyone having any luck?Anyone seeing and hearing many birds?

Yesterday evening I had a bird with 20 hens come to 65 yards of my decoy. It was a quck set up after I saw several hens about 300 yards away in a long field.

I'm going in the morning. I'll let you know how it comes out.

Close, but no cigar. He came in at 40 yards, but I couldn't shoot through the brush. Drumming, spitting, strutting,... it was great. Well, better luck next time.

Sorry to say, but the first two days of my season were disappointing. The gobbler I'm after gobbled good Friday morning, unfortunately he wasn't on my property. There were at least two other hunters on the lease next to my land calling at him. He is a very smart bird, so I wasn't too concerned about these guys getting him. The thing that irritated the hell out of mewas that one of the hunters drove his truck right down the middle of the powerline Friday morning, afternoon, and Sat. morning and parked where every turkey in the country would see his truck. Needless to say, the old bird never made a peep today. That's fine though, I'm off all next week and the gobbler and his buddy will eventually come back on my property. That's turkey hunting though.
