Opening Week of Turkey at Camp!
Well, Turkey Camp V started out on Wednesday, the 29th of April. Got everything opened up, warmed up, unpacked, and ready to go. Plans were to hunt, fish, split wood, and lay the concrete pad for the steps on the deck. Every thing got side-tracked the next day with 14 hours of rain. Cut up the last logs on Friday, and scouted for birds. Saturday had 3 gobblers going on distant ridges, but they didn't cooperate too well. Saturday afternoon, first log splitter begins to leak hydraulic fluid. Put that one on the backburner and rented another one. Got 10 logs split and that one began leaking also. Sunday, beautiful day, camp fires, mowed down some unruly blackberry bushes, and rested. Monday, birds sounding off again- this time the hens cut us off. Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday not a peep. Got the pad for the steps poured in between Wednesday's 1 1/2" of snow and Friday's 2" of snow. Friday afternoon was spent catching some nice rainbows and browns on the Genesee River. Packed up Saturday morning (23*) and headed home. It was a great week!
Wishing I was at camp!
