Stayed in the blind for 7 hours yesterday and I sure glad I did.  Lots of action from the frosty start right up to a late lunch.  Had only one adult gobbler messing with the decoy and hanging around for a while - that is until he looked me in the eye at 10 feet!  That ol' boy straightened up and marched out of sight.

 

Also had four jakes hanging around for over an hour after they checked out the decoy at close range.  What a show!  All fanned out and gobbling at times.  It's uncanny how they hang together and seem to move in unison - almost as though the show is choreographed.

 

A few Canada geese feeding on the clover and alfalfa and some deer early on.  Sure is fun to watch the deer try to figure out what that decoy's all about.

 

Lots of great video, too.  I'll be uploading some of it to YouTube later.

 

Oh, that gobbler that I didn't shoot...same one came behind my garage late afternoon yesterday for his daily portion of grain.   Made me feel good to see the 2 year-old Tom that I passed up and I thought maybe next year...

 

If I see a 12-inch, double-bearded 30 pound gobbler today, I'll pull the trigger.  Otherwise, I'll be content with my front-row seat.  For  now.

Thanks, men.  Saw only 4 hens today and gave up early to get some work done.  Forgot my camera anyway.

 

After the deer got done sniffing around the decoy, five of them hung around nibbling green stuff.  Guess the wind was right for that part, cuz I'm not using any stinky stuff for turkey hunting.

It’s good to hear that you’re getting out. Good luck luring that double bearded 30 pounder in.

Never kick a dead coyote, especially one that ain't dead when your gun is still in the kitchen. Just ask your favorite Yooper what will happen. But if its a bobcat in a 330 coni and you think he's dead,,,,,Think again..

Good one, he needs to spend some time at the feed trough.

Might be true, but he has other things on his mind.  He's still struttin' around, though.  Just saw him and some others again.
