Discussion in 'Upland Game and Hunting Dogs' started by atrkyhntr, May 4, 2005.

  1. The weather may give us all a break and things should heat up this cmong weekend both weather wise and bird wise... Who all will be going out? I'll be donw at my cuz'ns trying to get him a bird then maybe I'll swing by West Branch and see all the carpers... maybe even bring a pole or two ;)
    While I am out I'll check that nest I found last weekend and see if the hen had anymore eggs...
  2. Walked across street yesterday,saw 3 toms and 2 hens.Saw about 28 a few weeks ago cutting threw the front yard.Tooo bad I don't turkey hunt..

  3. ..and where did you say that was??? ;) :D


    Going Down To Harrison Co. This Weekend. Chris F And I Went To Op Last Week. The Birds Were Still Hened Up Bad. This Weekend Should Be Good. Looking Foward To It. Good Luck
  5. Atrkyhntr,My wife and I like to cruse on our Harley around the back roads where we live,The last 2 times we had a few hens cross just yards in front of us.Pretty cool...
  6. We have been seeing Toms & hens around my Dad's house nearly every day. He lives in the middle of a huge woods (has 22 acres himself)
    He is retired and he watches them out the bay window in the back. If you move what so ever (indoors), they bolt for it. Their vision always amazes me.

    I can't bring myself to kill one because this is Clark County and the population is just taking off. They released several birds last year just a couple miles up the road. We saw a total of 4 last year, but this year we are seeing them regularly - which is very cool! We will observe this season, but beginning next year I will be hunting in his backyard!
  7. I was going to go out tomorrow but might wait until Friday morning and let it warm up for one more day. But we'll see!

    Don't know where I'm going, but I'm sure it will be NE Ohio, public, shot up, and trampled down. Better than nothing.
  10. hey emrducks..
    i live in harrison county and i been out this week them birds are henned up bad here too.. I usaully don't here a gobble until about 4pm when i am working in the yard.....
  11. When the gobblers are henned up the very best thing to do is try and find
    (should already know) where the strut zone is cause when the hens head to
    the nest that gobbler will become lonely and that is when he can be had...
    I also turn my calling to the hens and not the gobbler. Answer them when they
    call and not the gobbler...
    Best calls to use for me when they are henned up is the kee kee and of course cutting at the hens... Is anything 100% NOPE but sure is fun trying!!!

    EMRDUCKS tell Chris I rec'd his call but it was too late to call him...
