I thought I would share my adventures in Oklahoma. I had a super fun time there April 25th and 26th, 2009. Enjoy!

Huck; Great write up on a windy action packed adventure. Too bad on the piggy loss, those things happen unfortunately. The coyotes will have a happy lunch. Nice photos of the countryside and gooblers. Glad you had a safe journey. HH in Pa :boone:

It appears pigs are becoming a more frequently encountered beast in your pursuits. They ruined a hunt for me this year.

I'm on the depredation permit. I'm gonna go after the problem.

Sounds like you may have had the turkeys gobbling on the roost too much and got them limb-locked. In my experience the worse thing you can do with a hot gobbler is have him gobble repeatedly while he's still on the roost. We aren't the only things in the woods that are interested in a gobble. One that fires off repeatedly from a tree will invariably attract a live hen. They seem to know this and won't fly down until they actually see her. I do the majority of my calling after I'm certain the bird has flown down ;)

Agree with Leo completely. I'll make a couple soft tree calls, then after a few minutes will rapidly slap my hat against my leg 1/2 dozen times to imitate a flydown. Immediately I'll turn in direction away from the gobbler and call as though the hen is heading away. This has worked well on a few of the gobblers I've harvested.
