has anyone had any luck with the turkeys. I have had a very slow season. the rain has been relentless. it has rained on ever one of my days off. I have seen a couple turkeys and had one come in but i missed it with my bow.
I hunt in Ontario and have only had a coupla days out but I was able to tag one (better to be lucky than good) . But from what I hear pesaverance pays off. Good luck and enjoy the out doors.
Regards Fisher King.
im havig a bit of a problem with a tom i'v been after, every morning they go into my neghbers field but im not aloud to hunt in the field, so i have to try to call him out of the field and in to the woods, all he has to do is put one foot in the woods and i can shoot him, but he will just strut about about 5 yards from the edge of the woods waiting for what he thinks is a hen to come out to meet him, iv tried everything, any one have any suggetions on how to pull him into the woods
have a friend call from a little further(70-100yards) behind you? That or have you considerred decoys or a jake call?If he thinks hes got competetion he may not wait for his imaginary hen to come to him.
Ya thats a good idea, all i know is that he is an old wise bird and im a brand new turkey hunter so the ods wern't that great for me, but i thught that i did pretty good for getting a jake and geting the tom to twenty yards even if he never steped into the woods, so thanks for the info, oh and info anybody has an other edvise pleas tell im trying to lern as much as i can before next season, when hopfully i can bag him.
It has been a great season so far. Both my family and my hunting partner Nate's family tagged out. And we have done well with the few people we have brought out. The birds have been a little testy this season, but even a blind squirrel finds a nut every now and then. Here are some of the un lucky ones
My VT Jake
My early season SC Tom
Our Kids in NH
My wife Miranda with her first Tom

Emily with here bird 5 days after turning 10
Here are a few ,ore from Saturday.
My friend Brain smashed this Tom at 27 yards. Bird came in full strut for 150 yards and gobbled the whole way. Brain was about to pass out he was breathing so hard. Those gobbles do some damage to a man's nerves.
Dave and Nate tagged out in NH on friday.
and then Nate's Cousin Aaron on Saturday

Understanding wind currents and thermals in hilly, broken terrain can often be incredibly frustrating. I've found that collecting and storing milkweed seed pods during the late summer has made me a better hunter in the bluff country that I hunt. These little feather like seed dispersers will float on the lightest of air currents and will show you what the wind is not only doing right at you're location but more importantly down range. I like to use the off season to float them...
