Final day.. In the rain. I set up blind on the edge of a field... Woods to my back. Let out a call and a hen answers, clucking in on a string towing a Tom behind her.."omg... Is my plan actually going to work? A final day bird???" ... NOPE! she had no problems coming into my set... But the smartest Tom ever hung back in the woods behind me about 20 yards and sidestepped me.. Staying behind me and in the woods while the whole time she was 15 yards in the field in front of me! Behind me was private land so even if my blind windows were open, it was a no go. This bird did NOT want to come on public land! How are these stupid birds so smart?

My son and I played cat & mouse with a big Tom the last couple weeks.  He won.  I learned some things. My son learned how good a turkeys eye's are.  Lol. 

We'll get em next year.

It is best to learn that lesson very early on! Get it out of the way fast so he won't waste hunts thinking, "there is no way he can see me here, I'm fine" :)

I saw TONS of hens today after 2 weeks of no sightings.  If hens were legal, I’d have some meat in the freezer right now....

of course on my drive home, I saw three huge toms in somebody’s yard!

Well,  maybe I’ll get a bird next year...

Two toms in my yard this morning, gobbling at the hens.  They know where they can act stupid and where they have to be smart.  End of turkey season, but that much closer to deer season.

Thats why I always called them "Smartest Stupid Bird"
