I haven't heard a single gobble in OC. I haven't seen any fresh pig sign lately, either.
Talk about being bored...........lol

I haven't heard any birds either.

Lease is scheduled for a control burn. Fire breaks were plowed last week. We're expecting it to happen any day now.

Good luck to everyone turkey hunting this weekend. Turkeys continue to be scarce, but there are a few small pockets in OC that are holding some birds. Not like in the past, but a few. I plan on being down and hunting or at least enjoying camp with some friends. I think one of my son's is gonna join me, heck I doubt I carry a gun, let him do the shooting if fortunate to hear and see one. May kill a pig if one of them walks up on our set.

I am not an expert by no means but I suspect a large portion of your turkey hatches are in the stomachs of those pigs. What do the biologist say about that?
 
Today (Sunday) was a little different than yesterday. Heard at least 6 birds and one was ON FIRE! bet he gobbled 200 times on the roost. but only gobbled maybe 5 times once he hit the ground so I went after another bird i had heard on the roost that I kinda figured I knew where he was. There we're 2 gobbling when I got there and sealed the deal on this one around 8:45 IMG_4894.PNG IMG_4895.PNG

Beautiful weekend to be in the woods, Congrats to those who had some luck. Heard zero birds on Saturday AM. Heard several birds on Sunday AM on a different property, had several close, just couldn't seal the deal. It was just great being back down in OC for a weekend. Gonna try it a couple more weekends, then start fishing trout streams in the mountains and some bass on Lanier.
