Haven't gotten into the turkey hunting. The turkeys we see in PA are a hit or miss thing. Last fall we didn't see a single one, year before I saw 30.

Theyre still pretty flocked up here still. No loners just yet. Hens are concentrated tight and the toms are with them strutting up a storm.

Youth weekend is here ! Starts in the morning. We got a few nice birds in the area. Son already has one picked out. He is on the hunt for his first long beard. His biggest is 6" beard, said he's got the patience to hold out for bigger bird now lol........
Nothing says "finger licking better than a plate full of thunder chicken".....good luck to all !

gfdeputy2 04-05-2013 09:25 AM

OTF good luck to you & your son

Hey good luck to all the spring hunters.

Well youth weekend was a scratch, missed two birds, one sat evening n another sun morning. The second was a nice double beard bird. He had some realy bad excitement and flinching going on. O well, can't say I've never missed a bird,? Now it's how fast he jumps back n gets more practice to work on that flinch

gfdeputy2 04-09-2013 05:35 AM

OTF It happens
have had mishap after mishap with my youngest for the last 2 years
she has had tons of fun & told me the other day this year she is not worried about getting a bird just having fun like she had the last 2
she is learning she now realizes what hunting is about
& wouldn't doubt she gets her first bird this year with that kind of thinking
I think she put to much pressure on herself thinking she needed to get a bird

on_the_fly 04-10-2013 06:54 AM

Yeah , he has already got 4 birds, I think with the combination of, over excitment, worry of disappointing me, and my gun being a little much for him.
I think it's time to buy him his own proper sized to him gun, and put him back to the factory iron sights, think he had a little trouble with the scope on my shotgun.

gfdeputy2 04-10-2013 07:46 AM

I use Tri Viz sights on all my shotguns now
I got sick of mounting & unmounting the scope between hunting & skeet shooting have had them on for 2 years now & we like them a lot

gfdeputy2 04-26-2013 06:31 AM

Well NH Youth weekend starts Tomorrow I am excited & nervous for my daughter want her to get her first bird worse then she does But all I can ask for is us to have a Safe & Fun weekend. The Fun part we will have as we always have fun hunting together as she loves to blame dad when the hunt goes wrong (she is usually right):no::wallbash:
I am pretty successful when it comes to Turkey hunting just not with her LOL
well will keep you posted

tator 04-26-2013 09:02 PM

Well I've been 4 times this spring and havent heard a single gobble at all. Saw them just about everytime i went deer hunting this past fall/winter. I'm just not into turkey hunting as of yet. I'll probably get "more" into it when I can take my son or when I take my nephews someday. It's frustrating to me. All my buddies talk about is bagging a nice turkey by 6am and I'll sit out there till 10am and not hear or see a thing. oh well.... I'm much better hunting deer anyways! lol

on_the_fly 04-28-2013 01:50 PM

You will not see them were you did during deer season. Turkey change their pattern. They have a summer and winter pattern , they even change their roosting area.
Season here has been tough. This cold weather is realy holding them back.

bigevil1 04-28-2013 03:49 PM

the turkeys here in s mo are gobblin like crazy. even some in the rain and we had alot of that this weekend! they were not moving much but making alot of noise!

All times are GMT -5. The time now is 12:33 PM.
