May 16th Thursday

Good luck to everyone venturing out. The weather looks like it should cooperate.

Rain here, but it should be ending soon. This is one of the last few mornings I’ll be able to hunt ‘em off the roost due to work. Sneaking in close and seeing what I can make happen. I’m falling into the trap of hunting one specific bird. Let the chess match begin!

I think I'm an alright guy, I think I'm alright

Good luck!

Pulled in a new spot 5 minutes ago. Been a couple groups in a field pretty much daily. Talked to my buddy and was surprised to hear one of his buddies killed one in the field. Said there was 8 longbeards in there.

I've never stepped foot in these woods and of course both my lights are in my fishing pack. Socked in fog pretty heavy. Waiting for enough light to sneak to the top of the ridge above the field.

We'll see what happens.

Woods are quiet here. Heard 3 gobbles really far away. I figured they would be a little more excited this morning...

Got to the top of the ridge above the field. One pathetic sounding gobble at 547 150yds down the ridge. Setup and nothing. Around 600 one thunderous gobble down below.

Been waiting for the fog to burn off but it's holding strong.

Been calling sporadically hoping to gain ones interest.

Saw lightning and moonlight this morning. No wind and gobblers opened up at 5:45 all over. Had one in a tree about 100 yards. Called and he answered continuously then that familiar hen yelps to his tree fly down and they went the other way. Same story all season so far. On a good note no coyotes showed up that have been frequently this season. Heard of 2 more shot yesterday near by. That makes a total of 13 shot this season in my area of Tioga.

Nothing at first property. Moved to second spot and found a scorching hot one. Brother in law set up, I backed off about 20 yards. 3 mins later it was over. 9.5 inch beard 3/4 spurs. He used my v3 turkey pro. 52 yards and smoked him.

Heard a bird out here yesterday morning gobbling at crows on my way into work. Boss came in later said they were in his field when he came in. Figured they'd talk this morning. I figured wrong.

Almost eight miles on the bike this morning and never heard a thing. Of course they have to be darn close for me to hear them with the leaves out.
