    4 hours
    Man i have been every second that i can, I'm still after ol' loudmouth...He is still there, i heard him this AM but once again he went the other way.Call me crazy but i have passed on 5 different Jakes and 1 Gobbler that i just couldn't tell what he was...I'm not going to quit just yet, All my so-called die-hard Turkey hunting friends have all but give up...To Hot, Season was to late, Henned up Blah Blah Blah....I know its just a matter of time before i close the deal, I'm not calling to him alot...just enough to let him know i'm there...First Sat, i hunted him and i was shoked once again that i haven't seen another hunter in here yet....Stick with it...As far as fog...I do know that they will stay on roost longer on foggy mornings. I have seen them stay on roost till 9:00 on Foggy mornings.

    Hens
    Yeah they are nesting, i have jumped 2 and 1 had 9 eggs and that got me thinking that they were early breed but thats ok the Gobblers are still wanting to breed...Last year i called in 3 longbeards with my voice 2 weeks after the season went out behind my work and the lead bird came up the road in half strut so i think if you stick with it, you will be successful. I'll get with ya about those spurs. i'm doing a few right now but shouldn't take long. 1 Things for sure....All the easy birds have been killed so the ones you are hunting now will really be a trophy when your standing on his head.

    Good Friday
    Not one gobble on roost friday morning, must have been the change in weather. Got one to answer around 8:30, worked him in to have the lovely hens come in and take him away. Have had birds stay on roost very late on foggy mornings and cold mornings as well. Stay with em, these hens will get bred and move on leaving the lonely gobbler to find some new ones.
