Well this weekend was a bust as far as turkey killing went with my grandaughter. Yesterday morning we heard as many gobbles as I think I have ever heard in 40 years of turkey hunting. But we also heard dang near as many hen yelps and clucks and cutting between us and the Toms.:mad2: I truly wish I had had a tape recorder. We had no Toms work us yesterday. Had a lot of gobbles in answer to calls but none worked our way. Heard our last gobble at 11:15. We did however see 13 deer yesterday. Now to this morning. Very few gobbles this morning but did hear quite a bit of hen activity.:mad2: Had one Tom down south of us that did gobble for most of the morning and we tried a sneak on him at about 10:30 and were successful but he was with 15 hens and the hens weren't having any of us no matter what. They drug him off to parts unknown. Was a good experience for my grandaughter as she had never done this before. Her first lesson in moving through the woods quietly. Again today we saw lots of deer, 27 as a matter of fact. Saw more deer this weekend than I did all last deer season.:roll2: All in all a really good weekend even though we didn't get her a turkey. Definitely some good memories for me and hopefully my grandaughter. Did I mention it was cold yesterday morning.:eek:

I wish we could. These deer were all dumb and just stood there looking at our decoys for the longest time. In bow range too.:eek:

Seems to be the same way for me Jack!
But hopefully that all changes for turkey season...


But, I'm sure you had a lot of fun with your grand daughter, and I'm sure she had a blast too!!

Well I have to say she is one cool kid for only being 11 years old.:cool: We shared and had a lot of laughs those two days. Might be another reason we didn't see any turkyes. Too much noise from the blind.:hysterical:

Sorry to hear y'all didn't bring a turkey home ~ but hey, you didn't go home empty-handed. You both brought home some special memories.

Sounds like you two had a great time, too... :cheers:

Come deer season, you'll have turkeys trying to roost in your treestand with ya. Always seems to be the way it goes.:roll2:

Congrats on a beautiful weekend in the woods with your grandaughter!

Sounds like you had a very enjoyable time. I kind of wish I would of had some one in my family that could of taken me on hunting trips whe I was young and growing up. My dad took me fishing once in a while, but he really didn't fish much. I was 22 when I started hunting. The person who got me intrested in hunting does not hunt anymore. He is to busy with his company. Poor guy works 7 days a week!
