I'm not sure how it goes for the rest of you guys, but the yearly transition from being obsessed with deer to being obsessed with turkeys is usually a very strange and confusing time for me.


This year was no different, and it happened in about 5 minutes yesterday afternoon. So there I was, out tramping around the normal grounds looking for shed antlers. I was growing particularly frustrated since I knew that the bucks I had been watching had all dropped, yet I couldn't find any dang horns. This frustration finally grew to a low rolling boil and I began to wish I had something else to focus on for a while. It was about that time that I saw it. In a shaded area of a draft was this strange, three toed track in the snow. I eventually dismissed the track as some sort of weird overgrown chicken that probably came from somewhere down around Curwensville (everyone knows that things from Curwensville tend to be kinda strange. :D)
Anyway, I woke up this morning and did my normal routine. I got ready and came to work. From there I do the daily ritual of checking my email, getting any tasks for the day and settling in to catch up on HPA. But this morning was different, I suddenly found myself here in the Turkey forum. At first I thought I was lost, but apparently not as I started reading threads and everything!


Right about that time is when it hit me.... that weird uber chicken track had been a turkey! The smell of the spring air this morning and the sound of song birds had sealed the deal. I am now officially in turkey mode for the next three months... crap.

I used to be like that, but over the last few years archery has really kinda taken place as my favorite. I still love turkey hunting, and this little poke at humor was just I slight exaggeration of what actually happened the other day.

You're late to the party, son. For the most part, I spend 11 months out of the year planning for May. I can usually fight it off through the fall seasons, but I'm usually watching a turkey hunting video as I'm cleaning my flintlock!

I think about where and what I can do to prep for turkey season. It's my time, which is not enough time. That's why I love it so. I saw a few hens cross the neighbors yard yesterday. I waited 30 or so min to see if any toms were trailing but none that day. Soon ,soon there will be and I will be waiting!!
