Last weekend we had our last attempt at arrowing a turkey. Saturday we decided to hunt a piece of land just below my parents property. We knew those darn turkeys were in the area because he had been hearing / seeing them in the evenings on the section of land adjacent to an area open for hunting. In other words, the turkey knew they were safe on the private land and were roosting at night on this piece of property we weren't allowed to hunt on. They were taunting us. So, the idea was to wake up early and see if we could call them in for a shot on the land that was open for hunting. It didn't work. Someone beat us to the hunting spot, so we ended up driving around for 30 minutes trying to find a new section of land. Ugh. I was not a happy camper.
Anyway, we had a great time over all and had a few hens come in to about 10 yards which was kinda fun. Oh, and I almost forgot - we saw a naked dude sunning himself in an open pasture. Yep - not something you see every day while turkey hunting. My husband yelled at the naked dude to go put some clothes on. We had quite a few laughs about it all - we made fun of him all the way down the mountain.
I'm so ready for summer to begin. I plan on doing a little fishing, a little skiing, a little sun tanning (with my swimsuit on of course!) and a lot of shooting my bow in preparation deer / elk season. I just got my elk tags in the mail!! Let the fun begin.
