I figure I would start the new one for 2018. Turkey season is coming soon. Post some updates of what you have been seeing and hearing.

I got pics of turkey's but haven't been able to get up there and listen in the morning or evening yet. Will get to go soon.

Found a delicious morrel mushroom last week. Gonna look for more next weekend while I shed hunt. Some bucks have dropped their horns but got a picture of a buck this morning that had both sides still.

My number one buck made it through another season. Just like last year I got pictures of him right up until end of Jan and then he disappeared. I look forward to his return in October.

Trapped a couple yotes after deer season closed. Gonna start back trapping again when turkey season opens and try to take a couple more out before fawn season.

Went down yesterday to put out minerals for the deer and scout for turkey sign. Also looked for sheds for a short time but didn't find any. I did find some fresh scratchin's, but daggum coyote sign everywhere. I wish I knew how to effectively trap these dang "Land Sharks"! I am going to try and call 'em in and bust their ar$$'s!

Good coyote kills and maybe that buck will give you a chance this year!

Heard a ton of gobbles Saturday morning all the way up to 12:00 when I gave up. Small acreage turkey hunting is tough when they always seem to be across property line.

Heard a couple Saturday morning but they flew down with hens. Went back after them at noon and called in a nice first bird for my buddy. Didn't hear many shots.

Buddy killed one Saturday morning. I was on one and had him right in front of me across the creek. I could hear him drumming. I couldn’t see him because of a big dead tree that was down. Thought he would move more towards me and then a hen flew over the creek from directly behind me to him. We heard atleast 8 different gobblers.

Went after 'em again today. I believe of the the turkeys in our neck of the woods are gone. Maybe they've moved to a more desirable spot, or they're dead. Finding very little sign, and not very fresh sign at that. We see them during deer season (although not as many as in the past), and then POOF!, they're gone. ???

Turkeys on our place are still gobbling some and they still got a few hens with them, my buddy was lucky enough to get between the hens and a gobbler this weekend, deer really hitting the protean feeders good. Bucks starting to have nubs on there heads, this cool spring we have had has been very nice.
