I found a decent spot last spring when I got out yet. Found hens with poults since I only got out once at the end of the season. Im DYING to go back this year but on opening day. Its a small grassy field off a logging road that has a small pond about 150 yrds away down the trail. Down hill from the area is a patch of pines along a small spring. Its a bit of a hike to get back to. I've been walking on all my breaks at work to get ready to beat the crowd.

Whats everyone else up to?

I've only been one weekend so far this season out of state at that. Lost my regular place to go because the landowner had to lease the hunting rights out to the guy that was farming the place.

I got rained on hard the first morning. The evening hunt I was cut short and had to quit early. I managed to call a good bird in Sunday morning but he got hung up 70 yards out on a pasture I did not have permission to hunt. I watched him walk into another pasture that bordered no land I had permission for.

Frustrating!

Countdown on a huge "Honey Do" project has cut my preseason scouting to nil so I'm stuck relying on past seasons areas. I spend the PA opening day at camp with Woodhick/Eric/Judd chasing big mountain birds. LOL...traded for the rights to an elk & antelope trip this fall in exchange for a new deck on the house which is 1/2 way completed ...and a trip to Florida right in the heart of Spring Gobbler seasonPosted Image ..gonna be in overdrive the next two weeks!

Monday the wife and I are heading to Kansas and their season opens on next Wednesday. I have no opportunity to scout out there but have several locations to explore that have produced in the past. Eric and I have been really busy working on several garden tractors and have a couple of triaxle loads of wood to get cut, split and stacked. I will be in Kansas till later in the month and will have to hurry back to make PAs opener too. Then it will be up at O Dark thirty stumble to a spot and kill a big one.

Kansas hunting was unfruitful this year as numbers were down. I did work several gobblers but with the folage so thick and the birds henned up I did not shoot. I had several opportunities but all but one were jakes. The one was a very big tom that only stuck his head out of the underbrush but was behind a steel fencepost and I decided rather than risk a wound or miss held my fire. This is not the first encounter with this particular bird and he has won every encounter over the past several years. I did have him in range once but he was in a tree and in Kansas that is illegal. Opening day in PA I heard 3 different birds sound off but they were a long way off and clammed up when they hit the ground.

I went out Monday to a spot that has produced for both Eric and I over the years but all was silent. I did not go out today as it was raining and I dislike hunting in the rain.

You are not the only one to have missed our meeting. We are planning a Sept trip so watch out we may be a comming then. I had a gobbler come in this morning but he hung in the brush and walked right past me and did not stop.
