Shawn Scores…

Apr 26 2009

As I sit here typing this 2 long beards are messing around outside my window…  Why no hunting on Sundays in NJ!  Anyway, Shawn scored yesterday.  His summary of happenings is below:

Although Justin and I have been getting into birds (missed shots, missed opportunities) we had yet to connect on anything. That is until the last legal minute of today. It was one of those scenes that you only see on a hunting video. Imagine this, I had 6 longbeards fighting with all the aggresive purring, cackling and gobbling. Meanwhile two jakes were on the outside looking in. This fight was over two hens that I walked in on. I kicked out the two hens and at 35 yards this guy came by. It lasted only 5 minutes but it seemed like a hour. He weighed exactly 21 lbs. had a 10&1/4 inch beard and one of his spurs is my personal best of 1&1/4 inch!

April 24th Turkey Update…

Apr 24 2009

img_0039Well…  Silence is golden and since I did not post anything last weekend you could imagine we did not score.  Shawn and I both had the kids out in the blind.  I had 2 Toms come in.  Samantha spooked 1 and I missed on a 45 yard shot on the other one.  I am thinking there may have been a little too much brush in the area.  The day was beautiful and it was a win just having Samantha out for her first time.

In the morning and evening I have been seeing Toms in the same area and even this morning they had a strut fest going on.   Tomorrow Shawn and I will be headed out SOLO and hopefully we will have some nice kill pictures.

Below is a sideshow of the newest trail cam pictures.  I have not been getting as many since I changes the angle of the cam so I may change it again this week.  As always you can view all the pictures from the Trail Cam on the trail cam page.

Had to go out today to fill the feeder and wanted to change the angle of the Trail Cam.  So, while I was out I swapped out the SD Cards.  Got some cools pics including the strutter below.  Have been seeing birds strutting allot over the last 2 days right from my office window…
