Early season scouting

M

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:D. 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:D?

I was hollering to a couple of Toms this morning in my back yard. They were starting to get hot!! I was using a slate call and I have decoys out year round. A couple weeks too go.

That's awesome. I used to have a group that lived at my place. I had captive turkeys and the wild birds would spend all day with them.

Beautiful. Everytime I try to go turkey calling, it turns into an elk-scouting trip. I'm hoping to get lucky tomorrow a.m. (last day of spring turkey) and call in a bird.

At least my fall elk spotting is well underway.
