    Hunter McCrory 17 yrs old Saturday April 21,2012
    The morning had really high winds, kind of cool temperature and misting rain. Not a great turkey hunting day. I sat down under a tree and started calling with a slate call. Immediately I heard a gobble. I could tell he was at least 100 yards…

    This is Hunter's very first turkey. He weighed in at 25lbs.

    Braydon (11) and Holden (7), On April 7th.. opening day after several stubborn birds and a terrified jake ran away like they were on fire. 2 Toms come to the call to check out the tom decoy and a hen. Bray and Holden each fired at the same time with 20g, 3' Turkey loads and at 1:30 pm they rolled…

    I didn't get to go Saturday morning but I got to go Saturday evening and what a good hunt it was.

    From 4-6, I just set on this ridge and listened. I even took a much needed nap as I was worn out.

    After making only 1 or 2 series of loud yelps while sitting there, I had produced no…

    How is turkey season looking for you? Are they gobbling much? I haven't had a chance to go my truck is in the hospital and now I have now I have to go to Texas for a wedding. grrrrr.....
    yes they are-- I have only called in 17 jakes so far. No longbeards. I have killed a copperhead opening morning and that's the only shot I have heard so far while hunting every day except Friday when for was horrible.

    After getting back in and taking pictures on Stevan Segal Jr. I had told my wife I got to go back. So I packed my gear and left the Metro area around 5pm. When I got to where I needed to be it was roost time.

    I went to 5 places and nothing. I had no roosted bird. My confidence was low. I…

    I couldn't get up that morning to go early so I slept in. When I got to the woods it was about 10 am. I found a good tree half way down the ridge and cleaned the base of the tree free of leaves.

    I turned on my Therma Cell and set up my make shift blind. Even though I don't believe in decoys…

    This bird gobbled 3 or 4 times on the limb at other…

    I took this bird by going through his backdoor by way of boat. I stopped the boat about 6:30 and he gobbled at 6:40. I couldn't figure out the best route to get to this bird and my brother-in-law gave me the tip of coming in from the lake. (its public land so I don't want to say which lake) The…

    What can I say??? This rarely happens to us dedicated Wild Turkey Chasers ( I call us 'Chasers' bc it's a more fitting description of what we really do) - a 55-minute hunt, all textbook. You know... opening morning, cool, crisp with that breathe of golden sun just beaming though the pines; the…

    Went turkey hunting and came up plenty short again. Set up where I usually have them roosting but didn't hear a thing. Here a gobble a few times way off so I picked up and hightailed it that way. Sat down between a gobbler and at least two others. I am not real close to either.

    The one to my…
