No luck this morning. Tomorrow is another day.

We each saw a few deer. I saw a hen while walking out... and I heard a gobbler early at 5:30 AM. I was in a bad position... hopefully I can fix that tomorrow! [up]

It was windy and cold this AM. Saw a couple of hens early. Was able to get a couple Jakes attention with the call just before I had to quit, but they didnt show much interest. Got a couple more days this week I can try. This is my 4th year out. It'd be nice to finally get something. Even if I dont, its nice to be in the woods.

Well my first ever turkey hunt ended without a turkey but it was nice to be in the woods again. It was cold this morning! I saw a few deer and a couple of squirrels....I didn't see or hear anything that resembled a turkey except for Dragthor of course..:D Still have 4 more days so we will see what happens...I know the birds are there somewhere.

JerseyJim and I got soaked this morning. When the rain died down a little... I gave a couple of loud yelps with the mouth caller. 5 minutes later I had 3 hens 15 yards from the end of my barrel. It was awesome.

I cannot believe they didn't see my eyes blinking or the steam coming out of my mouth (wet and chilly).

I was a full camo statue.

No gobblers chasing the hens.
