Turkey hunt update
I got in and set up at about 4:45 this morning, the turkeys where already gobbling even thou shooting hours did not start until 5:25. I saw my first turkey a hen at about 5:40. It was 8:45 and I hadn't seen anything sense then and I had to pee so I got up and walked about 5 yards and went, but wen I turned around and there was a tom at about 60 yards out in the field. He saw me turn around and started to run around trying to figure out ware to run so I went and grabbed my gun and took a shot! I MISSED! If only I had sat for 5 minutes longer he would have came right in to my decoys. I sat the rest of the day and saw one more hen at about 1:00. Shooting hours were done at 7:45 so I figure that I hunted 15 hours today. After shooting hours were done I sat at a pond on the propriety I was hunting on until it was completely dark. This pond is kinda in the woods and about 1/2 an acre, and wen I was sitting there for Wood Ducks came landed right in front of about 10 feet out, that maid the hole day worth it.
