Wild Turkey Hunting Report 4/8-9/2017

Tough hunting this weekend. My guests were treated to good weather although a little windy during the day. We marched 9 miles on foot Saturday trying to strike a bird to no avail. Only heard one gobble. Saw plenty of tracks, but did not lay eyes on a turkey until 7 PM. A big Tom, 700 yards away on the neighbors property. Sunday morning had us out early to try and catch a gobble while the birds were still in the trees. We heard 5 or 6 different gobblers going off all around us! We took off after the closest bird and stared working our way into the area. The bird hit the ground and never made another sound. We tried to get it going and pulled every call that I have in my vest out to try and strike it up, but could not. We moved to another area and saw a gobbler in a food plot about 200 yards away. We tried a sneak attack, but must have spooked him on the way in as he eased off the plot and into the woods when we got close. That was the closest that we got as the birds did not want to play the game this weekend. We still had a good time and will be back at it again next week. Good luck out there!
