I forgot to add, seen lots of tracks/feathers where I bagged mine last year.
Work has kept me out of the woods alot recently, but I haven't heard any gobbling, didn't see any strut zones.
Any reports of toms starting the spring dance yet?
Ya, two weeks ago they were struttin and gobbling in my area. I can't even concentrate in class right now. Can't wait to get out there.
My first hunt of the year is gonna be a bivy hunt so we'll see how it goes. In turkey hunting they say there are the "masters of set-ups" and the "run-and-gunners". This is gonna be like the most extreme run and gun turk hunt ever. ha
What do you do with those empty nylon feed bags or dog & cat food bags? Can you say recycle? I use them for target practice for the youngsters. Take your empty shopping bags, stuff them into an empty nylon feed bag. You can also use old clothing or rags, (but put them in the bottom so it doesnt get top heavy). When your bag is full, fold the top over, punch some holes into the top and zip tie the top shut. Paint, draw, paste, or have the kids decorate their new target. Set it out 10 or 20...
