Those nonexistent turkeys around my neck of the woods sure have been doing a lot of gobbling this week. Anyone else heard any? Spring squirrel opens tomorrow (5/21) and I'm anxious to hear gobbling reports from participating individuals.
So, I wholly understand the logic with KY calling preseason laws. I fully believe that if you actually call turkeys in and spook them, they become pressured. I do not, however, believe they become "call shy". If they did, they would soon be nonexistent. Every time a hen yelped, gobblers...
I'm sure most have heard that Avian Influenza has been found at a few commercial poultry operations in W. KY and in IN. Just wait until the farmers start spreading chicken poop because they can't afford a 400% increase in the price of fertilizer. Let's go Brandon!
From here on out, better watch those antlers if you kill a buck. I got pictures of a young 8ptr that has shed one side on 12/11. Deer looks healthy? Make sure that doe you shoot isn't a buck that's already shed.
Ok folks, let's hear 'em. I'm usually tagged out by then but my day starts the same as any other during season. Up early, dressed, coffee, and head to a spot I hope to hear a gobble. Sometimes I'll never walk away from the truck. Just stand and sip coffee and listen. Other times I'll walk...
If anyone is looking, consignment auction at Powell's in Campbellsburg KY Saturday, August 17th. Several small tractors, mowers, tillers, grain wagons, etc. for the farm or foodplot work. Exit 34 on I-71 in Henry Co.
Congratulations to all the youth hunters this weekend and to the mentors that took them hunting. Thank you all for helping to continue the turkey hunting tradition. Every new hunter makes us stronger and the more hunters that care about turkeys the better.
If any of yall want to see some great Turkey Hunting, check out Chad Claycomb's videos on YouTube. This guy has it going on. Super footage and production combined with awesome calling. You can thank me later.
Time to inventory the gear, the calls, the ammo. Pattern the guns and maybe secure a few more places to hunt. Predator control should be in full swing. Break the calls out and practice, practice, practice.
Upper 40's,and tho a wind advisory is posted for later in the day, it was still and foggy. I slipped in close to a known roosting area and waited for gray light. As the eastern sky lightened I began hearing quiet puts and tree yelps. I inched a bit closer and chose a good wide white oak to...
You guys in the North Central part of KY can save your money on buying corn! The oaks 'round my way are loaded with acorns! The storms the last week have been covering my yard with red and whites alike.
