Scouting "them out"

Postby cut_un » Fri Mar 07, 2008 5:33 pm

We are supposed to get rain tomorrow(Sat.) :thumbsdown: Hoped to slip out and do a bit of poking around on a couple new pieces of property that I've gained permission to hunt. Guess I'll just have to wait til next week as it's already started raining :thumbsdown: Oh Well!

thats too bad cut, i havent actually set out to scout yet but need to get in gear in the next week or two. i have however located a few birds on one of the national forests we have around here that is open to hunting. there are 3 nice birds that i have seen on 2 different occasions while fishing. i'm hopin they stick around cause this is one of those areas that is only accessible by boat or a 6 mile walk so it shouldnt have much pressure on it. i cant wait till april.

With the time change this week, I should be able to get out and scope them out, but I'm with you, man, I get so worked up each spring. It just don't get any better than sitting in the turkey woods on a spring morning :thumbsup:

yeah i hear ya. i keep seein them gobblers and they are killin me. its so hard not to bring my diaphrams out and call to them just to see them react to my calls. fortunately for me, i work night and have all the time in the day that i need to scout and once season comes in to hunt. i get all worked up thinking about all of the what ifs and each little scenario comes into my mind and i like to think what i would do in this case and that. then i find myself having dreams of previous hunts. its amazing how many of them i remember so many of the small details. i got it bad man.

:rofl: :rofl: :rofl: So I`m not the only one!!!!!!!!!

Cut, I know you said it`s suppose to rain, but did you consider going out there anyways. Do you have any fields on the land? I go out on rainy days to see where the birds head. That way if it`s raining the day I do get to hunt I`ve somewhat covered my bases.
