Went out early this morning. Set up about 100 yds from the roost soon as I set up the dekes they started gobbling. so started off with some soft calling luckily a little after that I had some hens start going nuts behind me couldn't have worked out any better. Hens clucking and carrying on to my calls toms in front of me gobbling away up in the tree. After a little while of that 2 toms and a jake come in the one I shot was in full strut at about 30 yds perfect morning. 10 in beard and 7/8" spurs.

The recent temperatures really thickened up the woods in NE ohio this week. The turkeys are still going nuts.
As i type visibility is less the 30 feet, heavy dense fog. Second Saturday in a row, this sucks

Nice bird Jaybird! I've said for years that if you can't hunt turkeys in March then give me the month of May. You can keep April with all of the excuses of why the bird didn't play and then there's the April weather,IMHO. Good Luck with the rest of the season.

That's what I meant not the Hungry Tarpon. Use to stay at the Kon Tiki at the 82 mm. Loved watching the reactions on people's faces when they would feed them. There were some beauties in there and also behind the WorldWide Sportsman at the tiki bar there. Great place to be during winter.

Went out this morning with one of my good hunting buddies. I called him in this Big Boy 10 1/2" beard 1 " spurs. Another great morning in the woods. We had him gobbling right after we set up. Called to him he came out of tree but stayed about 100 yds out and refused to commit for about an hour just gobbling away. So I kept calling to him and my buddy was able to sneak up on him and get it done.
