Im headed to AL for tomorrows opener. Hope to get this monkey off my back. South FL was a wash due to hunters shooting longbeards out of trees and just bumping them left and right. Fun times but I'm being hopeful and maybe I'll draw blood in the am

guys i think we need to enter all mature birds and hopefully have a few bonus points thrown in, to have a shot at this thing. i dont think we need to enter any jakes for sure. what do yall think? i know i wont shoot a jake anyway unless it gets to the end of the season and i havent killed anything. i can usually kill at least one or two birds but the places i hunt you just never know how they are gonna act from year to year...two years ago we couldnt fight the birds off with a stick but last year i had some trouble... i killed one opening day and never killed another one... i hunted several wma's and national forest and i could only get them fired up on my club.... that was the only place i could even get one to gobble.... so hopefully this year will be a good year.. im excited and going to scout some more this weekend

I agree completely. No jakes. I say enter mature birds and then we can worry later on about maube holding out for bonus points. Also posting pics here first should help to avoid andbody having birds DQ'd for any reason.

I'm going to hunt your spot. Me and Matt will be hunting together, should I let him shoot first? Or do you think we should flip a coin.

well we had a pretty good morning but it just didnt come together .... had a couple birds called in , never could see one of them and then had one come from our right side i couldnt see because of a laurel thicket, but my dad had the bead on his head, needed him to take two steps to get a shot, and he wouldnt, he turned and walked off back toward the main road gobbling. we were about to try another strategy when we hear a truck coming with loud pipes, bow up in the road right down below us and shoot out the window..... well we went to eat and then come back cause we heard 4 or 5 more gobbling and the guy had come back after we left..... pretty sure he had come back to collect his "trophy"....... that irritates me to no end, i do not see what anybody gets out of shooting a turkey from your truck window..... anyway, im gonna get after them again tommorrow ... good luck to everybody..... we got some catchin up to do !!!!

awesome dobenator!!! i wanna see the video !!...... well guys we just about had 5 more points, we called one in at about 5 oclock this evening and my buddy(an opposing team member) was gonna let me shoot the first bird today (which was very nice of him) well instead of coming in the way we both thought he would, he had other plans and came in above us on the ridge we were on so i had no shot and he had to take the shot or neither one of us would have got him.... awesome hunt though!! i will hopefully be after em some this week and definitely next weekend

I was being greedy opening weekend. I had one dead rights but was waiting for the rest of buddies to get open so I could shoot the biggest and possible double. Ended up let'em get away. Season is young though and Im on plenty of birds.

I didnt hear a thing this morning either after, a weekend of hard gobbling. I guess they needed a break.

Well guys, I spent the last three days down at the club and I was skunked. The abosule worst opening week I've ever seen as far as gobbling goes. Over heard a couple birds in three days. Only heard 3 gobbles while birds were on the ground. Only birds that I got withinn gun range were 7 jakes just before lunch today. I will be back after it next week. Just gotta decide where to go.
