This has been a long awaited day in our household-Youth Season for Turkeys!  Last night we were in temps of almost 80 degrees, this morning we awoke to 38 degrees and rain.  Our Grandchildren Sarah and Ryan went out bright and early this morning with their dad Charlie.  It didn’t take to long before 3 toms came racing in to Charlie’s calling, and they made a bee line to the Little Runt Decoy.  Ryan shouldered his shotgun and waited for the perfect shot.  He shot , and the biggest bird in the group dropped.  Shortly after Ryan’s bird was down, his cousin Luke connected with another tom that came in to both Charlie’s calling, and to the Little Runt.

In Pennsylvania we are done hunting turkeys at noon, so Sarah is going to have to wait for next weekend when the regular turkey season comes in, to get her bird.

The turkeys in Florida are like a lot of the country’s birds, ahead of schedule. The birds are just not acting and reacting like normal. We had a couple of gobblers answering us yesterday, but none really interested. Today, the weather was a lot cooler, but we had dense smoke from a controlled fire covering our whole hunting area. The smoke made it difficult to breath, and everyone left with stinging runny eyes, and a rawness in our throats. Those poor animals have no relief from it.

Dale had a gobbler hang up at 200 yards. Maybe tomorrow for him.

I managed to get a shot on a young bird, this was my first Osceola Turkey! He came into my line of sight, making a beeline for the decoy.

Tomorrow I will be sitting in a stand that has had some hog activity recently. Hopefully the smoke clears and the air is once again clean. Make sure everyday you “love the life you live”!
