Got your score submitted BB. Now go get another one. I will be heading to north Texas Friday morning to hopefully get one more Rio. Good luck everyone.

I have been listening to this turkey gobble for the last few mornings and afternoons while sitting in my driveway. I hope he keeps it this weekend our season starts!!

We had some hard hunting. Walked miles each day and had hundreds of acres of private property to hunt with no one else around and we couldn't find the birds. Only gobbles we heard were way off. Some of the land had been thinned but by the looks of it more than a month ago. We only saw one hen. Not sure what the issue is but a lot of times this place is peep quiet early in the season. Will be going back in a couple weeks. Hopefully better then. Still had fun and beautiful weather.

I have been working on a game plan to go after that turkey that I have heard gobbling by my house. He has always been within a hundred yards from we're he roosts morning and afternoon. This morning I heard him gobble the total opposite direction.

Get in there early early early with a decoy and wait..then call. Walk in ultra quiet if you know where he's roosted otherwise he will sense something isn't right and head the opposite direction of where you came from. 2 years ago the bird I got was gobbling at 4:50am already and I took 15 minutes to walk 20 yards to my spot to make sure he didn't see/hear my coming. Eventually he gobbled his way down to me and had a lead breakfast.

That's what I was planning on doing in the morning, but when he gobbled from a completely different spot this morning it threw my thinking way off. I have not heard him gobble this afternoon either
