Cort also got his bird. We called it in at first light and he came from over 200 yards away.

Thumbs up Nice Job!!!! What part of the state were you in? I'm looking to do my first turkey hunt this fall (no time to this spring) and would like to check out a few recommended areas this summer.

Thanks! We were hunting unit 140, on the Colorado/ New Mexico border. It's a draw area and most guys that we met said it took them 2-3 preference points to draw a tag.

Very nice gobb hiker and great scenery pics thanks for sharing and keep em comming man. I see them every year just never hunted them yet they have special licences here you need and they just brought them back to my province so I dont have any hunts close to me for turkey its all down south in ontario where they reintroduced them. Every deer season I see about 50 or 60 in a flock and Ill have to agree hearing that gobbler is something else aint it.

atomikall, Thanks friend. I really never had a interest in hunting them until recently, they turned out to be a lot of fun. When Ontario opens up a season in your area you should give it a shot or draw one of those special tags.

Oh I want to I just dont feel like paying another 120 bucks to hunt em yet and the closest place to hunt em is about 5 hours away atleast. Here in ontario you must have a small game licence and a special turkey licence you must take a course before you can hunt them it kinda sucks but Im sure Ill break down and get it soon at my uncles farm they are all over its crazy how fast they came back nothing like watching 50 bald heads running around in a farm field.When I do my first turkey hunt Ill post pics.
I think the government here is doing anything they can around hunting and fishing to make us pay more its retarded the prices of hunting now compared to what it used to be when I started.

I think that is true in most of the Provinces & States. It's becoming the cash cow to fund other programs.

Yea you got that right it is a cash cow and I think they have caught on because prices increase every year now and its getting more and more to be a pain in the ass. Why your state has the same problem.
