I would be pumped except:

1. I just started hunting and I am trying to put all my money in gear for a certain kind of hunting (duck)
2. I have no clue where to hunt around myself, and I don't have a license so I'm stuck researching on the computer

Other than that I would be excited.

Went out this weekend for my last youth hunt ever and had some jakes and hens come in, but I didn't want to shoot a jake. Went out in the evening a saw the big boy across the road but the farmer was mowing and the people next door were skeet shooting so he didn't come in. Nevertheless, I will be up in Virginia and I know I can knock one up there :hammer:

I killed one 20 pounder 3 weeks ago in the season and last week I was hunting and had a BIG, BIG gobbler in bow range at 30 yards, but I misjudged the yardage and shot right under his belly. He would've been very dead had I been using a shotgun but I was out there trying to kill a turkey with a bow. I'm just really happy I got that first turkey anyway because I've went 3 seasons without killing a turkey and finally called one in.
