when does everyone go hunting?in NY may 1st,cant wait to be leaning against a big oak at dawn when those gobblers start thundering.ohhh im getting excited gonna have to go play with my gun lolickle: ickle:
weather looks very rough for in the morning. thunderstorms suppose to start about 4 am and then maybe taper off around 10. we are hoping that in between the brute of the storm them birds will be moving out in the fields in the easy drizzle rain. i just hope its not a hard rain the whole time and we get to see some of that easy drizzle. :thumbup:
are you allowed to hunt all day here its 12pm and thats it id go with the open fields too.got a blind?turkeys dont care like deer ,who got to get used to diiferent sceanery. even a small tent is good .GOOD LUCK. OUR CRAPPY WEATHER STARTS SUN till wed :bye: :bye: :yes:
did not take the blind just wore our rain gear. we messed up by listening to the weather man. it was suppose to be hard thunderstorms from 4 am till around 10 am. so we decided to get there at 8 or so and just sit out the hard weather. we just knew the birds would be coming out in the fields after the rough part of the rain. well i wake up this morning and there is no heavy rain. looked outside and it looked like prime time to be in the field. the front moved in slower than they thought so the heavy stuff did not start till about 12 noon. we only heard about 5 gobblers and they would not move to us. we seen one strutting on the side of the mountain about 120 yds away but he was moving in on a couple hens over there and would not be called away. right after we saw that i noticed 2 guys walking through the woods on a direct path to our birds. they ran them off. :wallbash: the gobblers were just not in a mood to talk this morning or they were hened up. we were hunting land that we lease and it is a prime turkey area. it is rare not to see alot of birds out in the fields. today i guess they just did not want a part of it. there will be a next time though.
and oh yeah the 2 guys walking around were a son and a grandson of the guy we lease from. they were not wearing any camo just walking around the woods and claimed to be turkey hunting. they had figured we were deeper into the property and that they would not bother us in the area they were walking in. guess thats what they get for thinking.
joel i used to have a pop up but i like to use camo nets lot lighter than a pop up just have yor self a spot cut out of some brush and toss her over an your good to go best part you not out a lot of money if you leave it and some one takes it
