Maybe so, but personaly, I prefer the challenge of hunting them. Posted Image Also, that's not particularly legal anywhere I've ever heard of.

Just saw another flock on my way to a town about 17 miles from home. There must have been close to 40 birds but I was in traffic so could not see if any were in strut or not.

It was really exciting to see that many birds but was a real letdown that they were on State Prison property so cannot be hunted.

Know that feeling Paul. There's a farm just down the highway that won't allow hunting. They put grain out for horses and mules. You should see the gobblers! Big ole birds with beards dragging the ground! Sure purdy to see though.Posted Image

I was thinking of possibly doing a little really early scouting on Saturday but the weather seems to say no. Right now the wind is howling like a banshee and blowing the little bit of snow we got today all over the place. Infact just as I looked out the back door a really big gust blew just about everything off the back porch including the grill cover that I had not put back on from doing a couple of steaks last night. I had to get my heavy coat on and get a flashlight and go hunting the cover. I chased that dern thing near about all over the neighbothood till I caught it. We have just a little too much snow on the ground to do much scouting. We have about 6 inches and more expected tonight.

I know the feeling Paul. We get just enough nice weather to tease us good. Then it's back to below normal temps and lots of wind. It keeps up we'll need a fish landing net to hunt turkeys. Just hold it up and let the wind blow them off the roost into it. Posted Image They're talking rain and sleet tonight. Way my joints feel I'd say they will be right.

I have not been out scouting yet, but I am starting to think about Spring turkey hunting. I just pulled my Double Bull blind up a few days ago. Need to get all my turkey hunting gear together and start getting ready. We always have fun taping turkey hunts, especially when they respond to calls.

I was at Wally World this afternoon and they had a turkey vest on sale for about $30.00 I did not look at it very closely though so can't comment on much more that the price.

I could try, it worked for me. Of course pieces of it scattered all over the yard helped too! Posted Image Posted Image
