Nice job!

Thanks for the reminder that the season is here. I have hikes planned this week in the woods. I'll have to be aware of where I go so I can avoid screwing up anybody hunt.

Can't tell you the number of times I have inadvertently blundered into someone in a blind or deer stand. I always feel guilty. 

But I got my things I'm working on and they gotta be done this time of year, and they gotta be done on land that is hunted.

I just want to coexist safely and without scaring anybody's game away.

That’s awesome congrats. I headed out this morning to NW MA to try and find a Turkey in hill country. It didn’t work out for me. I heard exactly zero gobbles and the mountains were pretty windy. Had a good time though getting away from the local feeder birds; and found this match set on a ridge top. Rodents had already hit them a little bit.D796E93C-38D3-4C52-9909-70F7A2CEB834.jpeg.5ce4cd440304cc3002e3101d95c288c3.jpegEFB5197F-7BBD-4708-AF0D-FF59018EE639.jpeg.b1847f67a92c4327437b73b2a7677c80.jpeg

You have a gift for finding sheds

I don’t have the same gift for turkeys haha. Stayed local this morning and got on a gobbler my third stop. Spent 2 hours going back and forth with him stuck on a hen inside the 500 ft buffer. I just couldn’t pull them out and eventually he went silent. I headed back to my truck at noon and he had made his way behind me and was heading my way but never made it. I had a layup on him when I stumbled into him if he wasn’t 275 ft from the closest house. Good luck to all this season.

I am not too into turkey hunting, but my son is really enjoying it. In Ma he hunts on my tags so I can’t shoot another.
 

In RI he has his own tags.

I thought my season was going to end in quick fashion this morning. I had two toms coming in together gobbling their faces off. They stepped out at 50 yds giving my decoy the stink eye. Just as I slowly shifted my gun to the left because they came out further over than I thought; a hen between us I had not seen saw me move. She alarm putted and the toms instantly went into preservation mode and began to quickly walk away. I probably shouldn’t have but I let one fly at 55 yds and the bird wasn’t phased. My gun doesn’t pattern well past 35 but I had worked them for over an hour and at that point wanted to shoot haha.

I passed on a  small Jake at 20 yards this morning. Had another one coming in that had a much better sounding gobble, but that's fooled me in the past too. Saw that one for about 3 head bobs at 50 yards and that was it. A roosted hen cut me off from where I really wanted to setup. Wouldn't you know that's where this Tom spent most of his time gobbling his head off.  :laugh:

The boy finished his first MA season today by punching my second tag. He is really enjoying his first season.
