    WHATS GOING ON ! I find it hard to believe NO one is harvesting any birds or your not posting your pics or your not posting your scores for the contest. Theres no point of a forum if you don't share your experiences.

    The cold weather we were having has really shut down the birds around here. I have only heard a few hen calls during the past 6 days of hunting. This warmer weather should get everything moving!

    We got 3 in the first 2 days. My 14 year old got his first ever, a triple bearded jake. I got a big Tom at my farm on the Thursday. I didnít weigh any t or measure the beard but he was a stud.

    More turkeys than usual it seems, saw a group of 15 yesterday out back by my blind yesterday. Most were male.

    Finally, nothing last year. We got 2 new farms this year so that helped. Also got my first one ever at my place. Saw him walking out back, ran through the bush, stood behind a tree and he came within 15yds. That’s the big Tom. 3 minute hunt.

    It's no surprise to me that turkey numbers and reports are down this year. As I previously reported, we had an almost 98% nesting failure in the north half of WMU 75 and 60 last year due to the record wet spring. I was seeing flocked adult hens by late July, with zero poults, so the second nesting attempt even failed. We had about 85 turkeys at our bird feeders (my house and my friends) and we counted one young of the year hen. The only standing crop left this spring are adult birds in my area. The biggest part of the spring harvest is jakes, which are almost completely absent in my area. There's a substantially smaller pool of birds to hunt this year, and the ones that are out there are educated yearling + birds. No silly jakes making mistakes at the decoys this spring where we're hunting. Anyone else seeing the same deal in their hunting area?

    What a team, way to go! Special congratulations to your son. Y'know that in 4 or 5 years he'll be teaching you, don't ya?
