Turkey season opened Monday, 19th with temps in low 30’s. I set my blind in hayfield Sunday afternoon. 6 am today, lots of gobbling for 30 mins. I don’t call too often, 2 or 3 times an hour with an Ike Ashby slate call. 7:45 I heard one, close gobble. Few minutes later, he walked right to me. Second year with a 11/87 Remington, with # 4 shot Remington Nitro 3”. 9 “ beard with 1” spurs. 23 lbs. season runs 3 weeks, 1 bird first week. I got home before the April snowstorm forecast. Crazy weather in Midwest!

Congrats! Our season opened the 10th, and I haven't had time to go yet.

Good job man. I've been seeing a couple of gobblers in the open field 1/2 mile from my house every morning and sometimes right after noon.
FYI, you would need your snow camo this morning--3" of heavy , wet snow on the ground and still coming down but slower over the past 1/2 hour.

The boys went out this morning and saw more coyotes than gobblers.

Monday 26, start of second week, I called in a gobbler at 6:40 am. This one weighed 20 lbs, but older. 10” beard and 1 5/16” spurs. These are the sharpest I’ve seen. Beautiful bird. Shot shells were a new Federal load. 3 sizes. 5, 6, and 7 shot. A 40 yard shot and he was dead before he hit the hayfield.

Good for you.
We haven't been hearing much gobbling. I often hear several gobblers every morning when I'm out doing chores but I haven't heard a gobble in 3 weeks.
