What the heck

  1. Man this was a weird couple of days. i called in two birds for my cousin opening morning and he shot about a 15 pound jake with around a 5 inch beard. But the weird part was the other bird that came in was so far away when he started comin you could barely hear him. My cousin put only 3 pellets at the base of his neck but luckily it killed. We had worked the jake from 6:30 to 9:00. But now hes dead so that is great since it was his first bird. Then this morning i got to my spot after about a 2 mile walk and there was a rig parked right at the edge of the pine thicket were the birds roost. I m not trying to throw any geographical slurrs but we had arkansawyers trying to have free reighn all over the private property we were on. I had me a bit a cussing fit and i think they got the point. Then i went and got on a GOOD bird and worked him and belly crawled on him for about an hour and a half before i got ancy and tryed to make a move on him and spooked him at about 70 yards. it was weird though, he would doudle and triple gobble every time i hit that POOR VALLEY glass call but he3 would not budge. I watched him for at least an hour straight and he never moved more than 2 or 3 feet. But thats how it goes. Hopefully i can get us some points on the board in the morning. But it was a VERY succesful hunt in all. I helped my cousin get his first bird down so it was great even though i never fired a shot. Good luck every one im off to get ready for tommorows hunt.

  7. Been hunting hard boys! Just cant get it done. Ive been spooking the crap out of silent birds. And went to set up on one yesterday and got about 200 yards from him and he gobbled and then someone rolled him. Just been a rough year.

    Dang it does sound like you are having a tough year. Well keep your chin up you still have a few dayz left. I haven't even made it out yet. I think with the weather report the weather may mess the hunting up this weekend.
  9. Its been bad! I broke my own rule yesterday cause they wouldnt answer any kinda locate call. I called one to the truck as i was walking back and then spooked him when i got there and he never would gobble. Theve got the lock jaw alredy down here. Gonna have to break out the pop up this weekend and try to call in one of those silent boogers.
