I live right across the NYS line in Bennington Co. VT. I have tags in both VT and NYS and can't wait to get out there. The turkeys are just starting to gobble over my way....not seeing as many as in years past but have seen a couple of good toms. Good luck this season!
Saw two big toms strutting in a field adjacement to my property yesterday morning; a third was on top of a hen. I've had gobblers respond to owl hoots the past three mornings as I stepped outside my door. Now if they'll hang around another week. [Also saw a moose as I was driving to workyesterday. I just love this time of year !]
I just got back from my elk trip to Colorado and must say that I learned quite a bit about hiking in that one trip. I researched all I could on the internet and thought I was prepared going out. For the most part I was but I want to pass on a few major things I learned that helped me drastically!
1. Pack light. I know this may sound like common sense but believe me. After reading everyone's advice on what you need to pack, chances are your pack will end up weighing more...
