No bird for grandson's mentored youth hunt....

I took my grandson out for his second ever mentored youth turkey hunt today. The weather was nice, a little cloudy but no rain. We walked the trail and stopped to listen for any gobbles. None heard by 6:15 so we climbed the ridge and setup to blind call the area. We sat until 8:30 then the boy started getting antsy. Just then we heard one faint gobble on the other side of the valley. Since my grandson was already wanting to get up, I asked if he'd like to move across the stream and setup in a new area on the gobbler's side of the ridge. We did so and called for another hour or so, to no avail. Overall still a fine day just no birds to be had.

Time spent in the woods with family is priceless! I'll be pulling for him in future hunts.

Re: No bird for grandson's mentored youth hunt....

Thanks guys. Yes, I would take a hundred days like yesterday in a heartbeat. I'd love to see the boys get a turkey, but just being out there with them is simply wonderful. I thank their parents for allowing this old man to do so.
