Successful morning turkey hunting , am thinking some crappie need to get caught to round out the afternoon !
Heard 7 gobblers on 200 acres this morning. They were fired up.Gobblefest at my place this morning!
Turkeys gobbling in every direction so much that I didn't know which one to go after.
Ended up settling on what I thought was two lone gobblers double gobbling every 30 seconds.
Got to within a 150 yds before setting up and called them three different times to the exact same spot 75 yds away but could not close the deal.
My two lone gobblers ended up being three toms and two hens. They put on a hell of a show but a steep 20 ft tall creek bank kept them from coming up to me. They would strut and gobble their azzes off but would not come up the hill. I could see them plain as day in the open creek bottom but they would not come up the hill.
Had to get back to the house to work the dogs but I'll be below the rise tomorrow! :cheers:
btw - Turkey kicked the whippoorwill's azz today as far as vocalizations!
Been on the bank for almost a week on upper LOZCrappie moving into the banks yet Sul???
All afternoon I was glancing up the banks just to see if I could pull it off !Turkey, Crappie, and some Morels make for the Springtime Tri-Fecta. Been in my bucket list for a few years. Been able to complete 2 out of the 3 before, but never all 3 in a single day...maybe someday
Opening day never heard a bird or saw a bird , yesterday spent the morning chasing two stupid ridge runners ( walk and gobble , walk and gobble ) just got lucky this morning and got between two gobbling birds . The one I set up on hit the ground and shut up but the one I got couldn't help his self !What took ya so long, was wondering why we hadn't heard out of ya :cheers:
Thanks For The Fishin Report Mister!Been on the bank for almost a week on upper LOZ
