Hung UP

These birds are hateful. Been getting some of this.

Hunted a lot this week and these birds are just not coming in. They get down strut, gobble and have a harem.

I am into birds and I was hoping to at least get some subordinates to slip in but not happening. Only bird we got this week was on a belly crawl. After that I had a bowhunter come over and a youth, so bellycrawling not an option in those circumstances.

Today went to a virgin spot that a friend took me too. A woman he was cleaning the church with said to come over and shoot a bird and he called me to tag along. These birds acted just as hateful. Gobble on the roost, fly down strut gobble, assemble a harem, and not budge.

We went in blind and ended up within 80-100 yds of the action. We are going back tomorrow morning and I have already planned to bump them into the direction they went with my friend waiting. I have about had it with setting up near flydown and hoping they come in.

How would you all deal with this? Is this just a stage of early season or pre breeding? I dont think they are breeding yet?

I would try and be set up where they want to go... You saw where they went yesterday, that would be where I would set up tomorrow.... A lot easier to call them in a direction they want to go...

they changed their minds today. What a freakin treat they can be sometimes.

Last night the high winds woke me, and I said to myself I hope the high winds give them turkeys a miserable night sleep and they mess up.

Another big middle finger to me
