Don't know if you guys are starting to think more about those big black birds of the spring, but I sure am. I'm ready for some warm weather and the first "spring morning sunrise" Bring it on :salude:

I enjoy duck hunting, but I LOVE those gobblers. :getdown: I think I`ve ruined my favorite diagram and worn a hole in my glass call from practicing to much already. I`m taking my nefhew on his first turkey hunt on the 7 th of April which is our youth day.

I`ve commited myself to two guns this year. First my TK2000 and then a single shot 410. The smokepole throws a great pattern out to 35 yards and the 410 to only 15 yards. My friends tell me I`m crazy :tounge: . For gobblers....................you bet your @ss!

Waiting on tags to come in the mail. Season opens on 14 April, day after my ladies birthday. I think this year I shall take out the .243 and shoot me a bird. That way I can sit on top of a hill, not have to worry about calling, and just wait. I should be able to pop one out to 200 yards downrange. :biggrin:

Funny how states do their hunting, some hunt on sunday, we do not, some have to draw tags for certain areas, we just hunt leased or public lands. Glad you have your "perfect spot" Hope you get a bigg-un :thumbsup:

How many birds you all allowed to get. I got 2 tags for 2 of ANY turkey, WOOT!!

PS - The bit up there about using the .243 was a joke. Wanted to see how many people would tell me I am not a hunter :biggrin:

In Texas we can kill up to 4 gobblers for the year. On guns , a shotgun is the only way to go, not from the challenge aspect of it , but it is really alot more effective than a rifle on turkeys.

I can't wait. The season in Ontario don't start till April 25th though, were allowed 2 bearded birds.

Last year was my first year I got a jake the 1st and 2nd day hunting, this year I'm holding out for a tom. The turkeys we have here are Easterns. :thumbsup:

Last year was my first year out and I got skunked. But that's ok that just made me even more determined to drop one. I don't really care if it's a jake or a tom. If it gets in range, lights out.

Gobbler hunting is the best time of year. For me I think it has even replaced duck hunting as my favorite outdoor sport.
There is nothing better than sitting against a tree in early May at 5:00 in the morning and hearing gobbles all around you.
Then when you see that big Tom strutting across the field towards you. Talk about an increase in heart rate.
