WENT OUT 4:30 AM LIGHT WIND I WAS CALLING ,CALLED IN 3 LONG BEARDS TO 35 YRDS. YOUTH TOLD ME BEFORE THE HUNT THAT HE NEEDED THE BIRD UNDER 30 YRDS FOR A CLEAN SHOT WITH A 20 GAUGE, I SENT HIM OUT IN FRONT OF ME ABOUT 10 YRDS AFTER THE BIRDS WALKED OFF. 8:05 AM HE HAD A BIRD WITH A 5" BEARD AT 10 YRDS AND HE TOOK HIM. ANOTHER HAPPY BOY HOOKED ON HUNTING.

IT WILL RAIN SOON . I HAVE FOUND MORE TURKEYS OUT IN THE OPEN WHEN A LITE RAIN IS FALLING . BIRDS MIGHT NOT TALK AS MUCH. STAY ALERT A BIRD CAN SNEAK IN FAST IN DAMP WEATHER. DONT STAY HOME BECAUSE IT'S RAINING MY BEST TURKEY DAYS HAVE BEEN COLD AND WET.

( JUST A TIP THAT MIGHT WORK FOR YOU )

GOOD LUCK TO EVERYONE THE SEASON IS YOUNG

At the Stokes Sports shop up near Kittany Lake along Rt. 206... when I checked in my bird yesterday... a F&G guy was doing the checking... he said on youth day he checked in 23 birds... most he's ever done on a youth day.

One of my students went out with his dad... they called in three but nothing to within shooting range... he still had a blast though.[up]
