This past fall turkey season had me concerned about the number of turkey that are in the woods after all the rainfall that we received this past year because fall turkey was a bit tougher than its been in the past years, but I was still able to take a nice Longbeard.
However, I've been out scouting in the snow and the trail cameras are showing that there are a lot of candidates for a Rage Hypodermic for Spring 2019. In two spots alone, I have at least 18 longbeards on camera. They were strutting it up pretty heavy in that last snow storm we got. I have this particular camera set-up about 70 yards from a phenomenal roost site that forces the birds to enter and exit from 1 direction. This spot is always loaded with birds, but I haven't hunted it since 2010. Based on some of the spurs these boys are packing, it shows I have neglected this area.
The nice thing about bowhunting this spot is that all the action will either be at first or last light, so the sits wont be long.
Awesome pics.... I have a sweet honey hole for long beards that usually produces for my son and I. I was startin to get worried, I haven't seen any turkeys since the fall but last weekend we were settin up to call for coyotes and we saw 6 great long beards. Can't wait to git after them. Good luck to everyone....
