Default New Yorkers~ did you get out for the youth hunt today? i did (STORY)

me and my dad went up to our camper in sullivan county. we slept there friday night into saturday. woke up at about 5:00. got in the woods around 6:30. no gobbling at all. my dads friend owns a farm up there and we went up to the farm. nothing up there. the day is still young though...8:30 a.m........we were up at the farm for about an hour and a half until 10:00. then we decided to go back to our property and walk the mountain. we didnt see anything up the mountain. now 10:15...... so we then decided to go back down the mountain, but not on the path. as we were approaching a ridge, there was a stone wall which had a gobbler hiding behind it.( we didnt kno at the time) once i took a step towards the wall, the turkey took flight and tried to land in a tree, but couldnt so it just kept on flying. (10:30 AM) it was definetly a gobbler bc we saw the red and blue head stretched out when in took off. only damn turkey we saw all day...[:@][]....... i thought about taking a shot at it with my 20 gauge, but i didnt, it all happend to fast. now what i dont understand is why the gobbler was still all alone that late in the morning........


anyway did anybody else get out for the hunt today, i will be back out tomorrow. gotta wake up at 4:15 AM bc we gotta drive for 40 minutes to get to ulster county...[:@]... well i would love to hear some stories from today.... i am gonna go to bed soon....

Good luck tomorrow if you didnt get anything today..... also good luck for the season

nope today is sunday and no luck. we did hear some coyotes going off in the distance around 9:30. then like 5 minutes later, we heard a gobble. we set the decoyos up and waited for about an hour. it never came.
