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
I have a system I use in Whitetail hunting during the rut that seems to work for me. When I make a mock scrape in the area I wish to hunt I will place a couple of 35mm
film canisters (film removed of course) in the scrape after I have cleared out all leaves and other debris. The film canisters are filled with cotton balls and saturated with doe in heat urine. This keeps the urine from soaking in the ground and can be refreshed on each trip if needed. I will also use the tarsal gland of the buck...
