Turkey Hunting Whether it's spring or fall doesn't matter to this bunch. Great tips on calling, bustin flocks, using blinds and more.

Default I did a little scouting today..

Hi all I went and did a little scouting as I was taking a blind in my hunting area to stash away until this coming Monday.. I wish Monday would of been today.. I saw lots of turkeys ( hens and Toms ) and hope the heck they will show them self to me.. I left fairly late and saw my first group/flock of turkeys at 9:30 this morning. The last group I saw was on my way out at 12:00.. In total I saw 7 different groups/flocks that made my day.. I thought it was going to be a lot harder to see any out there after our harsh winter storms and all..
Anyways here is a few pics..



Check out the hooks these 2 have chasing each other down the road..


This picture is not all that great but you can see a decent beard on this tom!! Which I saw at 11:30 I saw another huge tom with some hens right at 12:00 and I tried to get a better look but could not..

Thanks, I normally see this stuff starting up around the end of March here so I have my hopes up. Most of the time though it is not until the second week i normally have any luck.. I am hoping this year will be different..

Looks like a target rich environment. Good luck Phil. Hope they are still roaming the same place when you get turned loose on them.
