So far this has been the toughest turkey season that I have had in many years. Most seasons I am tagged out by the first weekend. Started off the season scouting the youth season for birds for the opener. Was able to find and roost birds. My first three days of hunting in Noble county I never saw a single bird with a gun in my hands. Decided to leave to hunt around home in Athens. I have hunted everyday so far this season. If it could go wrong it has this season. Between the cold weather and birds being locked down with hens my season so far has been horrible. Today the first day that I was able to work a bird. Set up about 200 yards to where 5 gobblers have been roosting. Only heard the birds light up 6-7 times on the limb this morning on a high pine flat. Didn't start calling until I saw hens coming off the roost. Was set up on an old logging road that lead up to a hay field. Gave them three soft yelps and that was all that was needed. Saw two birds pitch off the roost and glide 150 yards to the bottom of the old logging road. From there it was a race to the decoys with out a peep. Ended up taking the shot at 12 yards. Bird weighed 23 pound, 11" beard, 1 1/4" spurs. Made this tough season so far that much more worth it. Keep grinding guys the best part of the season is coming.
