    Took the blind with us to set up this morning, no gobbling on roost but one did fire off a few times on the ground then shut up, drove around to check fields and seen one out where I hunt about 300 yards from the rd so I slowed down to use the Bino’s and he took off like he had been shot at

    I just got back in from the morning hunt. No gobbles. Seen 1 hen. Rain didnt set in as was predicted. But it was still cold and dreary out. Going to try for a evening hunt today if possible. Will definetly be out in the morning. Have a new piece of property to hunt..just a big field. But..birds are seen in the field, but ar random times and days. They have no routine in this particular field.

    Saw a break in the rain on the radar about 11 so I headed out. Was back by the lake on the farm i Hunt. Water was up and aluminum boat we keep back there was almost half underwater. Started to pull it up and threw my back out. Back at home on an ice pack. Really hate that weatherman.

    I'm back at it. There was quite a bit of gobbling this morning but nothing very close. We stayed till almost 12 and packed it up. Dad decided to sit this evening out and I wasn't in the blind 10 mins and spotted a couple toms about 400 yards away going around the hill. They didn't show much interest and kept walking. Last night I watched a group of birds from my truck come through this field going to roost. I'm hoping they come back in and decide yo come whip these decoys.

    I hope it warms up tomorrow. So the turkeys can fly out of the tree. At this rate the turkeys will be frozen to the limb till noon. They better be eating and less hanky panky if there gonns make it through this polar blast we got tonight. Haha

    Was supposed to be a nonstop downpour here in CKy but stopped about 7am and had just looked ugly all day. Heck I probably would have went this morning but I drive to my spot and it’s one of those things where you don’t want to get everything ready and get burned. This afternoon been on daddy duty so today is out. Might have to be sick a day or two next week.

    I decided to try my strutting decoy again and I think i messed up. I had 3 toms come to 130 yards and they didn't like something I'm not sure what but I'm thinking it was the decoy, it seems like every time I have used it I will have birds act spooky towards it. Last night they was chasing each other around and I thought it would be a good choice.
