Default So it begins

This is going to be my youngest daughters first turkey hunt. I think it will be fun to keep a daily log of how it progresses. Last night we got permission to hunt a field. The property owner told us there isn't alot of birds using it but we did find a couple when we got out of the car. We set out a trail camera in a spot hoping to catch a few photos of birds working a fence line. We also set and waited until dark to see if we could hear or see some birds. Unfortunately we didn't see any other birds. We will continue scouting this week in other areas and keep you posted.

We went out today and scouted another area. It's an area Lindsay shot her turkey last year. The only problem is its a public and very popular spot. We however did find lots of sign.

When we got home a turkey left this on my sidewalk going to my front door. We have never seen a turkey in my neighborhood. They however do live a few blocks away. So I think this means war!

That's funny. Last year during the turkey hunt, a hen turkey came into our campsite and left a similar present.

Rascals...

We are checking trail cameras today however we have birds a few hundred yards away. So I sent Makenzie in alone to retrieve the trail camera while I watch the birds. Were trying to leave as small a foot print as possible. It's hard to see but if you look close there is a tom in the photo.

Checking photos on the camera revealed interesting things. I'll post them up when I can download them.
