They’re Back…

April 3, 2015

The damned turkeys are gobbling their fool heads off outside my window right now.  They’d disappeared for a while… most notably, they’d disappeared the past weekend when I could have been out there hunting.

But now, they’re back.


Laughing their turkey laughs.

Because I’ve got a series of meetings that start in about 30 minutes.  And it would take me about 15 minutes to get down there and set up.  Which means all I can do is listen to them gobble.

This evening, a cold front is supposed to roll in and, as much as I and everyone else here is thankful for rain, it’s going to put the kibosh on turkey hunting plans.

So the bow is still hanging in the mud room.

And the Marauder is still leaning in the corner.

And I’m sitting here.

Pouting a little bit.

Cursing the day job, and waving the single-finger salute to those damned turkeys.

    I think the turkeys have a handbook. Maybe surveillance on your place, too. Actually, I think they keep tabs on me, too. Unreal how when you get out after them they disappear, but when you have other things going on they are out in full force.

    Good luck when you DO get out after them!

    Thanks, Al.

    This probably sounds crappy of me to say, but one of the things I deal with here is finding a good opportunity to make an actual hunt out of it. Shooting them from the porch isn’t really my favorite way to go, although if the season is almost over and I don’t have a bird in the freezer… well…

    I’m hoping to get out in the morning, if the weather holds.
