Getting ready


Recommended Posts

I’m going away for a week and won’t return home till 5 days before opener. Since I’m hunting the same farm  I’ve hunted for years I decided to put up 4 pop up blinds early without much scouting. (I have seen plenty of birds on the farm).  They generally roost in same areas yearly so I’m confident where I set them up and birds will have plenty of time to get use to them.

I’ll have a few days to scout before season opens to determine which I want to

hunt first but I’ve killed multiple  birds at all 4 locations previously.

I was doing some work in my yard last weekend when the kids tapped on the window and pointed in the back yard. They always come through in early April but they are long gone by May.

We drove to NJ yesterday morning during the snow. We saw around 8 flocks of turkeys totally over 50

birds on our short drive from home to Watertown but only 2 birds the rest of the trip. Looks like I live in a decent spot for turkey hunting compared to more to

our south.

I feel like the population in certain locations is certainly boom or bust. The western NY portion of the state definitely seems hit or miss, or the birds just aren’t hitting fields in those particular habitats.

Good luck to the youth hunters this weekend, and their dads lol. 
Special memories for sure.

Came back from the Yates county Youth program for this weekend. What an amazing opportunity for kids that are starting out. The volunteers that orchestrated this event along with its sponsors and guides can’t be thanked enough. My son is pumped.
