Default Gobblers

Anyone been out listening for gobblers yet? I plan on going out tomorrow morning for the first time..

Hearing that first gobble of the season is almost like being a kid on Christmas morning. 30 years of turkey hunting and I still get so excited with turkey hunting!!

I will let y'all know if I hear anything!!!

Man i miss chasing them birds my old man was one HELL of turkey hunter, i swear he could call one with just his mouth and sit still enough for ole' gobbler to walk right up to him. we used to have calling contest between the two of us all the time. He lived for turkey season named his second son Jake of all things cause he was born during turkey season. i will never forget pops coming home from hunting and having to go to the hospital decked out in full camo, he was huntin that day. Yall go get em boys good luck this season

Well I'm over here at Eglin so the only land I have to hunt is the Eglin Reservation. Last year was my first season to hunt here. There are some turkeys out there but for every gobbler I heard, I bet there were 5 hunters after him..

More than one morning I would be working a bird, I would be the only vehicle in the area and then all of a sudden I would either hear that another hunter had slipped in on me or I would see them walking in on me, then get back to the truck and there would be 2 or 3 trucks parked by mine and a couple more parked down the road..

Public land hunting sucks but it is all I have so I put myself through the pain anyway.. My wife says I am stupid for going out every single morning season is open but man do I love turkey hunting!!

What I love more than calling in one for myself is actually taking new folks out and calling for them, I get more satisfaction out of that..

Heard them gobbling in blackwater back on the general gun reopener (after thanksgiving opener). Listened to 5 different gobblers and 20 something hens for two hours that morning.

Well my plans for going out this morning to listen were stopped when the weather man said last night that there would be heavy fog this morning.

I thought I would wait until tomorrow to go out and listen now. Of course when I walked outside this morning there was no fog.
