    Nice work guys... I was hoping to add some photos from the weekends opener but I got worked over by an old tom. Humbling experience but staying on track. Good luck to everyone else. Gobble gobble.

    I've been close to #3 the last two mornings. Yesterday I belly crawled for an hour and a half to get within range of a group of three big toms, three jakes, and several hens. They left as I was about 15 feet from where I needed to be without giving me a shot.

    People always say that aggressiveness kills game, so I got aggressive. The flock fed up the hill in front of me, then disappeared over the lip. I shortcut through the woods yelping and walking fast right at them. Sure enough, I pop over the lip and they're all within 30 yards. I identified a gobbler and shot at his head as he gawked at me and turned. I didn't win that one.

    This morning I took my Dad to get a bird, and had one coming but he hung up on the lip of the hill and finally flew over to the neighbors place. I've put up a blind in a spot that I've seen birds the last two mornings so hopefully the thread gets updated with more pics soon.

    These are the first for both my son and I. Not huge birds but we had a lot of fun, definitely hooked.

    Turkey season started here in BC on April 15 so tomorrow will be my first day out actually hunting. Hopefully it all comes together this year. We're allowed one bearded turkey in the spring and one bearded/hen in the fall. This will be my fifth year hunting them and I do love it. I thought I was sort of getting it figured out and then last season showed me how many ways I was wrong(too late, too early get restless and get busted as soon as I stand, hung up, henned up, moving when I should have stayed put, not moving when I really should have, call in hunters, get called in by other hunters. You name it and last season it happened. Good times! Can't wait to give it another go.
    Some great looking birds showing up. Hopefully I'll get onto some birds sometime soon.

ID:	9233Got a chance to get out and do some calling with a buddy. This guy hung up for about a half an hour. But we tricked him by having my buddy walk away calling as he left. After he faded almost out of ear shot, this guy poked his head out to see what was going on! How fun is that!
