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 State of depression

It's a sad time of year. All hunting seasons are over. Turkey season is over. I feel like I should be out there hunting something.

I'm in almost the same position. Fortunately, hogs are open year round, assuming you stay off the WMAs. Same orange and weapons rules as deer. I'm going with my brother later this week; even if we don't get anything it's still good to get out.

Out of curiosity, do you get 2 extra weeks (after gun season) of archery-only turkey hunting? I recently found out we do in CA and am now trying to put that together (i.e. get up to snuff with a bow).

then again, Colorado isn't that far from Little Rock. Maybe it's time for a road trip?

Well, it happens, over here in the East we have year round Yote and hog hunting. Plus we got pretty good access to Salt and Fresh water fishing year round so we always find ways to kill time.

The end of turkey season is depressing. The end of deer season doesn't bother me as much: been chasing the deer around for a few months, it's the middle of winter, and getting out of the cold for a while doesn't seem like the worst idea. Turkey is different, it's spring, the weather keeps getting nicer, then it just ends. We're almost done in Illinois (goes to Thursday). I have 2 more weekends of hunting, but have to drive to Wisconsin to do it.

Default I've been working on it

I've been cutting down trees in the cold weather.

No time to get depression.
