Bottom line? I came out of the weekend empty-handed. I was 0 for 2 on my weekend of hunting. I gave it my best college try, and plan on doing the same thing as many more times this season as I can. Those turkeys, by the way? Even less scared of me that morning. I had packed up all of my gear, taken off my face mask & gloves, climbed down from the stand, and was walking out of the field before they decided to
run waddle off. While they are very fast, and I know turkeys think they're running, that's not running. They look too silly to call that running. Do you know what I mean?
Someone large had passed this way very recently...
It's still early in the season, and the rut has not yet begun. I'll tell you what, though. I will be in that stand as soon as it is underway. Who's with me?
