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

Turkey season is finally arriving up here!

Default Turkey season is finally arriving up here!

Turkey season is opening up!! Yessah! Tomorrow is youth day here and Monday is the start of our season! It has been a long wait for this to get here. It almost seams like it gets to be a longer waiting period each year with all the southern states already hunting for them! Hopefully I will get a chance at one on Monday..

Bought my Ohio tags today.

Monday is my opener.

Good luck. I won't be out until Tuesday probably.

This morning is opening day and I will be at it trying to get a long beard to show itself. I am planning on hunting in the back field for a while this morning. Hopefully one of those big birds will still be around..

Good luck Jake..

I had four deer come out by me while I was setting in my blind. One of which came in close and started stomping and blowing at me. Then they all trotted off. A short time later that big Tom came by me. He strutted and gobbled up a storm but wouldn’t come in for a bow shot. Then two hens came along and he chased them out of the field. So I changed my decoy set up and hoping to see him again. He was seen yesterday going threw the field around 5 ish . So hopefully he will be back and give me a bow shot. I did see a hen go running back down the field. So he shouldn’t be to far away. No matter it’s been a great morning to be out here..

Saw two deer, no turkey seen or heard.

Called in a couple geese though.... Maybe I'm doing it wrong



Took the wife's 20 gauge Mossberg out this morning. So far all it's been used for is squirrel

Good luck, guys!

The season opens here in NY on Wed, 5/1 and goes through 5/31. Half hour before sunrise to noon.

Unfortunately, the weather forecast is calling for rain showers each day this week. Have you guys had successful hunts in the rain? (This is my first time turkey hunting, btw)
