Yeah, I told my Dad he needs to participate. He was sitting in his treestand last year during deer season when a group of about 20 birds waddled through the orchard he was in, and hopped up into a tree 50 yards away to roost.
And go figure, he still has never turkey hunted. I tell him every year he should go out, since he knows where they are, and has permission at some other farms. He still says he's too busy coaching softball in the spring to go, and there is no fall season.
I like the idea. here in Colorado with units that have very few permits something like that could give a lot better idea on how far they have spread out and how many are really around. Much better than just harvest data alone.
If you're like me and use a plastic tote to store your gear in then you might want to read further. When plastic totes are manufactured they are typically shipped with the lid on. This makes the inside of the tote smell like the plastic it's made of. To remove the plastic smell from the tote I use baking soda. I open the baking soda up and leave the box in the tote with the lid on for about a month to remove the plastic smell. I tried just leaving the lid off but I was still able to smell...
