The last buck pictures posted at a scrape has become a pond since the last rains. Finally recovered the camera there and had lots of pictures, mostly does and yearlings and some too far to tell. But got some nice pictures of this buck. He posed for several and seemed comfused because the scrape is underwater. But he can still chew on the limb.

I have a couple spotted that could wake me up. But only if i have the thermacell going to keep the bugs from biting. I've been looking, but havn't seen the gobbler I was after last season. He had white wing feathers. Hope nothing got him, cause he is a real challenge and I enjoyed working him last year. Been glassing several nice gobblers that will do though. I've learned to light my thermacell in the truck, let it heat up before getting out in the skeeters. And I keep the cell going all the way to the blind. This keeps skeeters from trailing me. At the blind, couple minutes inside, then the thermacell goes outside in front. Bug suit will be employed too. While in the woods yesterday, took a picture of this nice rododendrun. It's the orange/yellow variety, and I marked it last year to get some to plant at home, but never did. That's why you see the ribbon on it.

Ga gobbler opens tomorrow. Not going to be a good weekend for turkey hunting if that weather moves in. And, the mosquitos are hatching out by the millions. It will be a themacell hunt if I go.

Smoke off the Thermacell before you leave the truck Mr.Son, and if you tap one, make sure to post a pic, if they don't cooperate, you can always go back and feed up at camp.

Went to town and bought another thermacell, plus spare fuel and pads. Now, I have two. Prepared for those bugs now. One on each side of the blind. Outside of course, don't want to breath that stuff. Looks like rain again tomorrow. So far we've had a couple hard rains this afternoon.

Skeeters were in thick swarms this morning when I went turkey hunting. Lit the thermacell before leaving the truck so it would be working when I got to the blind. Called once at daybreak, and soon after saw three hens and four big jakes coming in. Really enjoyed watching the jakes try and intimidate my decoy. Got to watch em for about 20 minutes before they moved on. later on, a doe almost walked right by the blind before noticing it. Sat there until about 10 and nothing else showed up, so gave it up for the day.
I used to own three popups and two chairblinds. Back during deer season, discovered somebody had exchanged one of my new popups for one they had with the top rotted out. Well, today, found out one of my chairblinds was gone too. I leave my camp trailer unlocked so thieves wont destroy the door. I'm down to two popups and one chairblind. Guess I'm going to start bringing everything home when not hunting.

Went turkey hunting this weekend and noticed somebody was cruising the timber, marking the pines with blue paint. So, today, decided to go pull my last camera before they got to it. Too late, they've already marked the tree and took my camera. I'm really disappointed, that a cruiser would steal a new trail camera that was turned on. Left em a note at the incoming road. "I want my camera back, leave it right here, or I'm going to the company and find out who you are"
I will be hunting this week every day, so will be looking for the culprit. Hope I can keep my cool. Just can't stand a thief. Now, I'm worried about the stands we have in the 650 acre lease. Early Co. Ga.

I waited for the cruiser this morning, and got my camera back. All turned out well. He showed up around 10 am. Heard some gobblers and saw two hens. thousands of big skeeters, so the morning was interesting to say the least.

What a morning, turkey hunting. If ya'll have time to read, i'll tell the story.
Setup in my first choice before daylight. I had a gobbler there yesterday, but never felt comfortable with the shot, so let him be. Well, here I was in a blind listening to one hammering it in a nearby cypress swamp. Figuring i was watching the closest clear ground to him, I just sat silent. Fly down time, he went about three hundred yards out into the field. Ok i said to myself, it's time to start talking to this bird. I cut a bit and he started my way. Gobbling every ten yards or so. When he was coming around a little point of swamp, he locked up and got real tall. Then started running the other way. I know he didn't see me, because he was over 1 hundred yards distance. 8:30 fog rolled in, thick and I couldn't see more than fifty yards. 9:30 fog rolled out, so I started looking for the gobbler. Instead, there was a huge rack buck walking across in front of me. I've seen this buck before, on a trail camera picture he had 11 points. Wow, where was he during deer season? About 30 minutes later, out came some does and yearlings. The fed across the clear field on new growth until they got where the gobbler spooked. A large red coyote broke from the brush and took after a yearling. I watched em run across about 400 yards of field, and it looked like the coyote was closing the distance when they got to the woods. Deer were going everywhere. Figuring that was what spooked the gobbler, I decided to give up for the morning. On the way to camp, decided to setup again on the other side of our property. Put Gertrude out (my ragged ol decoy), did some cutting and clucking, then began watching. Don't know when, but I fell asleep. Awakened about 11:15 and noticed a nice long beard about fifty yards to my west looking my way. Looked over at the decoy, and there was this gobbler strutting. Whoa, had to get turned around, get the ol 30 dollar shotgun up, and remember thinking. I can't get this gun tight against my shoulder, it's gonna kick me pretty good. Boom, and it kicked me and the gobbler. The other gobbler was still looking, but I got out and let him go on. I only shoot one per day, no matter how many shows up. When getting to the downed gobbler i noticed he had strutted around that hen decoy so much he had a circle drawn in the sand around it. Several circles in fact, no telling how long he had been there. Double beard, neither long, but the two total 9 inches. It's His spurs that got him shot. When I first looked thought it was a jake, but then noticed the full fan. Looked down and saw the spurs. I'll take a gobbler with spurs like these anyday. 1 3/8's is what the shortest one measures. The other is a fraction longer. Wish ya'll coulda been there with me, it was an unusual morning, but a great hunt.

Good hunt this morning. Saw four hens and two gobblers. One gobbler came to within 25 yards in gallberries. Could have taken his head off a couple times, but he never got to where I could confirm him as mature, so let him go on. He refused to come on out into the open. Later when he crossed the road west of me i saw why. He was with a hen. Another fine gobbler was tagging along. Both had long beards, confirmed with the binocs. They didn't yodel much this morning. Couple times and they shut up.

They will start gobbling more when they realize the gobbler I got yesterday is gone. Boss birds can sure make the woods quiet, by intimidating the other gobblers. Takes a few days, but it's going to happen. Plus, the hens will begin setting nest. Lonely gobblers are much easier to call in. And I plan on staying awake as long as I can.

The weather has been helping those ol gobblers beat us. Too hot, humitity and rain, they ain't been talking much. I see em chasing hens, like the hens don't want anything to do with em. But they wont come to or answer a call much. I'll still be trying though. My Sorry-10 ZR-2 strikes again. CV axle on the left front came apart, less than a year old.

Caught two poachers Sunday morning in Miller. One of them was arrested for possesion of a firearm by a convicted felon. They walked up and almost shot my tom decoy right in front of my buddy and I. Took awhile for them to be found hiding in the woods, but it was worth it. Im sure it will be in DNR's weekly arrest report online.

Not only is poaching without permission a worry. I worry about people being where I don't know when I'm hunting. Just another reason, I hunt from a blind when turkey hunting these days. A person has to really be dumb to shoot me in a blind. And, bobcats or coyotes have to come through a frabric to get to me. I've almost been jumped by bobcats before, and had one attack a decoy and tear the tail off it. Also had several coyotes rush my decoy a few years back. I quit sitting in the open against a tree when turkey hunting. Predators and idiots key in on calling and movement.

Fact is, we've had two turkey hunters jumped and bitten by bobcats locally. It's been several years since, but it can happen again, and I don't want to take rabies shots.

Spent most of this morning replacing the front cv axle on my Sorry Ten ZR-2. Decided to get in a blind for a mid day turkey hunt. Saw a gobbler going in, so set up some distance from him and began calling. Here came a timber cruiser riding down the road and ran the gobbler off. I stayed, and about 45 minutes later, the gobbler came out of the woods and began dusting. I called and he started in my direction. Here came the timber guy again, running the gobbler off. I gave up and came home. That's my day.

It's been a hard luck turkey season so far. This morning, I believe every gobbler within hearing was roosting on an adjacent farm. I could hear them, so they could hear me. Calling comenced, first with a fly down, the some cutting. Gobbler nr 1 hit the ground and headed my way. Boom, a fellow over on the farm shot him. End of my morning hunt, so spent the rest of the day pulling ladderstands off a property that's soon to be thinned.

Bet he was proud, and I was proud for him. Nothing like getting an ol gobbler right off the bat. Just a shame they all had to be off our property that morning. Only takes one coming to me to make me happy, even if i don't get him. But when someone kills him, you know he wont be there tomorrow.

Well, I didn't hunt Easter Sunday, but a friend did. He got to watch the same guy shoot a gobbler in the same place I watched him shoot one Saturday morning. That was the end of his hunt Easter morning. Think we're going to need to move to the north end of our leases and work on those gobblers. That will put us about two miles north of where we have been hunting.

For those who in the past inquired about joining our club. Contact me, looks like we're going to have 3 or 4 openings for this coming season. 1650 acres, and a camp with electricity and plumbing. We've been here for 25 years.

Looking good for the upcoming deer season. Our winter plots are soon to be mowed, and summer plots put in.

Our vacancies are going fast. We're down to two now.
We had an area clearcut this past year, already replanted. Amazing to see how fast those little pines are growing. Bet they've grown a foot in the last month. By season, should be chest or head high. Can't wait, that's a bedding and feeding area that a food plot can't compete with. Soon as this cool weather is gone, we're putting in peanut food plots, and maybe some iron clay peas. Suround farming feeds our game very well, but we like to feed em within our boundries too. Shucks, I've already enjoyed a couple collard meals from collards growing in a couple of our plots. If I could eat the wheat, oats and rye, it would be on the stove too.

I'm going to be after another buck just like this next season. Already seen him couple weeks ago while turkey hunting. He walked right across a field in front of me. Wider rack and huge. There's several nice bucks on our hit list, we have the pictures, just gotta see 'um.

No, not the Babcock. I'm in Miller/Early Counties. The county line splits our two adjoining leases.

Hadn't been turkey hunting since last saturday. Needed to go to camp and help a feller out, and pull some ladderstands because of a thinning coming up. Left early to do some hunting at sunup. Gobble just before flydown time. I called a bit and shutup. That's when my usual luck for this season kicked in. Noticed a feller running all around the field with a golfcart. So, I kicked back and took a short nap before going to camp. Yep, that golfcart ruined my chances of the bird coming over where I was. I believe a dozen of those skeeters would be enough to make a meal, but they don't look good enough to eat.

Went turkeying this morning. Worked two gobblers, but they would never come on in. Enjoyed it anyway. Best part, didn't have to clean one. And I get to work with em again another day. If this keeps up, I'll have to go back to bragging on last years birds.

Measured. This is my only bird for this season so far.

Up at 5, in the swamp before day, four gobblers hammering away. Called one in to about 30 yards. It was a show gobbling every step. Beard was thick but too short, let him go. This gobbler was hot, as he left, he gobbled out of hearing. He never strutted to let me check his fan to see if he was mature, nor could I ever see his spurs due to high grass. I'm thinking he was a mature bird though, but that's OK, he may come around again, and let me check him out a little closer. Second gobbler was on his way, gobbling, then at about 100 yards he shutup. Something must have spooked him. Never saw him, nor did the others come around. All in all, a great morning. Anytime I get to listen to four gobblers sound off, and have one come in to give a show. It was a successful hunt.
