That is a great looking tom. Now I am disappointed I did not put in for the draw in MN.

I struck out. Three very pleasant days spent afield, but no dead turkey to show for it. The silver lining is that my calling has progressed to the point where I can fool a gobbler now. I called one in last year and harvested him; this year, I had one who hung up just out of range. He came in strutting, but when he didn't get visual contact with a hen where he expected one to be, he wouldn't take those final few steps. The failure is less painful because at least I got some feedback from the birds about my calling: I must've sounded like a hen to him.

Well my season ended yesterday and I'm birdless. Didn't have as much time as I would have liked to commit to it, but gotta work too I guess.

I took Thursday and Friday off last week and hunted hard from daylight till late afternoon both days. Turkeys talking everywhere I went, and none interested in making a love connection with my hen impersonation. Not sure if it was just due to public land and call shyness? This is the first time I've hunted them down here in the driftless, usually go back home up north and I don't think they get as much pressure there. Either way, it was two beautiful days in the woods, so I won't complain. Now I can focus on fishing again.
