    Anyone else getting whooped?

    Yep I spent many hours in the blind and can’t seal the deal. I had one Tom strutting behind my blind for almost 4 hours. He was 10-15 yards but there was brush in between us and with the crossbow I could only watch. Today I though I had one dead to rights it was going into strut came around the blind a hen. I am sitting in the blind still and roasting it’s so hot. I did not hunt Sunday and my sister called and said I have really good decoys. Yep 3 strutting Toms in front of my blind. Seeing I start working tomorrow my hunting will be on weekends until the season closes now. I got two or three Toms gobbling like crazy on the other side of the brook. They just are not coming over. I make a soft call and get gobbles. They did this to me before. I am going to have to get some more water soon.

    Every bird is around now except for a turkey. I heard them as the sun came up but I know they went to that field again. I am going to stick it out and see if I can get one to come over in a while.

    Well they were all n the other side of the brook and they come over to my side often, but not this morning. I wanted to check so I drove over there. Haha I was right dirty birds and the property owner does not anyone hunt there. Maybe tomorrow I can sweet talk one of them to come over. I think a lot of hunters are waiting for later seasons. I checked a couple public land spots and no people tracks or truck tracks.

    Holy moly was the snow drifted up. I was thigh deep walking back to my dads field. I know I am a fat guy and out of shape, but dang that was a workout. The spot my blind has set almost every year is on a slight hill and had less snow. I shoveled out the spot for the blind tied the blind down to my anchors I put in last spring. Put my chair inside and the decoys, so I don’t have carry anything else except my backpack and crossbow.not much for sign that I could see, so tomorrow should be fun.
