Took some time off from fishing today and headed for eastern oregon to do some hiking and bird scouting. The first stand of trees I come to I find about 20 or so birds heading up the side of a hill. Some how I was able to get within ten yards of them multiple times and spent a solid 20 minutes within 20 yards of them. Normally these guys take off like a bat out of hell when I get anywhere near them, but today they didn't seem to mind me one bit. I even did a little calling which they seemed to find quite amuzing. Is it just me or is anyone else excited about turkey season?
