    Now this is what a person likes to see on their trail camera! This is at the bottom of the hill behind my house. I've got seven longbeards hanging out together and some of them are roosting about 100 yards from the back porch. I've only got 5 1/2 acres to hunt them on so I don't get to run and gun. I just have to sit still and hope for the best. I will start out hunting these birds with a selfbow. However, if things get desperate then I will tote along my new flintlock made especially for these critters. Come on, April 17th!

    If you don't have any hens hanging around, the majority of them will more than likely be gone once they start breaking up. But they wont be too far away. Seems like a lot of the gobblers on the farm will move quite a ways from their winter area for the spring. Seems like there's always one that sticks around in that area though.

    Good Luck, it'd be something to see one taken with a self bow.
