May 31.

Last day. Anyone score in the bottom of the ninth? Anyone even get out? Spring Turkey season always seems to blow past for me.

Hunting: 10% skill and 90% location.

Waiting to hear from r.s.b. his day by day over the past week has been fun to follow. I'm hoping to hear about a successful hunt from him.

Took a 10” Tioga county gobbler at 8am. Slept in until fog lifted, jake and gobbler came in behind me, gave 1 gobble when I called once 15 minutes after my first set. 42 paces, Mossberg 535 dropped him hard. Been a quiet season, been trying and walking hard.

Last day magic...

Slept in this morning and didn't get to my spot until about 5:30. Was working two birds, but thought only one was actually coming from left. I was waiting for it to pop out, then heard a bird gobble right on top of me to my far right. I swung the gun as soon as I saw him go behind a tree, but I think he spotted me. He did a 180 and as soon as he popped back out from behind it, I let the Benelli bark. 40 yard shot. 9" beard, 1" spurs. Got to show the kids before daycare, which was nice.

I killed my second bird Wednesday night, and my brother in law hunted the same property as me this morning and killed an absolute tank at 1030. They’re still with hens around here, and still gobbling good. Just a matter of getting on the right bird.

I scored on both of mine the first week. The season down here in 2A is tough the last two weeks. The hayfields are so high you can't even see a deer and the birds aren't gobbling. All my buddies gave up a few weeks ago. If I didn't fill my tags I would still be out but it would sure be tough to kill one.

Yes hunting hayfields is impossible at this time of year. Concentrate efforts in pasture fields where the cows keep the grass down is like a magnet for those gobblers. I saw 4 longbeards yesterday strutting with hens and 2 more this morning in different pasture fields.
