Turkeys? How'd we do this year?

Postby muskyduck » Thu May 16, 2013 1:10 am

As much as I really don't enjoy turkey hunting (except for listening to them on the roost), what else is there to talk about this time of year. If i had the cash I would go on a spring bear hunt in Canada every year instead... until then, I guess I 'll keep hunting gobble-gobbles...

I hunt an island on the WI River and not only was the weather for $hit the first and second seasons (my dad had first, I had second), but the island was under water as well. Water came down in the 4th season, and a pair of two year olds moved back and started roosting again. Wish I had taken my dad, we woulda had a double.

I've been a terrible mod. Just don't visit the Wisconsin forum like I should just due to lack of traffic.

We had a decent season. Shot five birds. My Daughter (10) shot her first bird during the youth season. Might be her last for a while? She said it was boring? OK? I guess we need more action than she had which was visual sightings of turkeys at all times? Oh well, maybe she'll be back?

I shot a nice tom on the opener between rain storms with the bow.

I shot another tom during my second season (E) with a bow in a known strutting zone.

I shot a double with a buddy on the last season (F). Only one guy to take pictures, and that was my buddy, so he took a picture with me displaying both birds.
