Not a peep on the roost. These birds are starting to get me discouraged. I'm almost ready to go back to work so I can recharge for a few days.

That said, the day is young and the company is good. We'll see what happens.

After a slow initial set up, my cousin and I got one to gobble down the hill from us. We set up above him and did some light calling. That bird didn't sound off again, but we had one sneak in behind us in the thick stuff. He never said a word, but I could hear him spitting and drumming and could see him moving through about 30 yards away. I was hidden well for the bird we were set up on, but not for this one. I don't know if he saw me or my cousin, but he left. I had the gun up and safety off, but I just could never see enough of him to see a beard and get a shot.

We then moved down the hill to blind call for awhile, and my cousin busted a jake out of a group of four that came in silent. The rest of the day was a bust, but at least we finally got on the board after four long days of hunting.

These birds were tough on me this week. My dad and cousin have a few more days up there, but it's back to work for me tomorrow for a few days. Next week's a new week.
