Can only hunt till noon the first half of the season here, then all day the second half of the season. Iíve killed nearly all my spring turkeys between six and nine in the morning. Iíve never killed one past noon. Iím not a fan of afternoon/evening hunts, especially when itís hot out.


Eh...wot?

I always steered clear of evening hunts because I don't want to screw up the roost. But I have no idea about hunting Easterns. I hunt the dumber cousin--Rios.

These birds can get pretty hard to kill when they get pressured. And it seems like theyíre either always pressured, henned up or both.

It makes for a very exciting hunt! I love chasing the educated two and three year olds, very
challenging.

Theyíre not henned up right now, but the ones that are not already dead, have heard just about every call known to man and are pretty wary about coming in closer than sixty yards or so.

On another note, I found this the other morning.

I looked around for the rest of the nest but couldnít find it. Maybe whatever destroyed this egg didnít go back for the rest, but I doubt it.
