    No bird this weekend either.

    Been one of the worst springs for turkey hunting I have ever had.

    If I dont score next weekend it looks like I'm throwing in the towel for this year making it one of my only years in over 30 years of hunting not killing a gobbler. Not sure whats going on but the woods are DEAD SILENT in Georgia.

    I'm heading to a completely different part of the state to try and get it done next weekend.

    Found these gobblers strutting their stuff right by the highway. We have a friend going to hunt them so good luck to him, they had 4 hens cornered.

    Missouri opened up yesterday. It was a balmy 27 degrees.. Had one bird gobbling off the roost, and called him in right after fly down. He skirted around me at 30 yards in the open beanfield, and I got a little greedy, thinking he would circle and then commit, so I didn't shoot. He walked off to 100 yards, sat there and gobbled for an hour, bred a hen, thought about coming back in, but then followed his hens away.
    First time I haven't shot an opening day Missouri bird in probably 10 years - depression.
    My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives.

    Interesting weekend here in Nebraska.

    Dad, brother and I drove out Friday afternoon...weather was turning cold. By Saturday morning all hell had broken loose, roads closed, wind howling from 30-40 MPH, with gusts around 55 MPH. We slept in and decided to go for a drive around 3 PM, the wind was still blowing like crazy. Only about 2 inches on the ground, and the north-south roads were fine.

    Turned on the east-west road...and it got a little hairy. Drifts didn't look bad (famous last words). Going through the second drift and my 3/4 ton 4x4 ground to a halt. Opened the door and I was pushing snow ("this ain't good boys..."). We dug around, but decided to walk to the nearest farm house for assistance. Brother humped the ~1 mile and caught the farmer as he was going out to feed his cattle. He was super nice and happy to help. Had us pulled out in no time.

    This is picture as we were getting pulled out...

    Sunday we got out in the afternoon and spotted group of 6 turkeys near shelter belt. Sent brother in from one end, me and my 77 year old Dad drove around and blocked the other end. Wind still howling...brother pushed this tom right to me. He was feeding along, minding his own business...45 yards...done!

    Last picture is on the walk out...no, that's not a dog track, or a coyote...showed the farmer...yep, Mt. Lion. He said several had been spotted around...and even seen some wolves in the area(!).

    All in all, great weekend with my Dad and Brother. They are headed back in two weeks...hoping to get some better weather. Me and the wife are pulling the ATV's to Moab, Utah first week of May.

    Good luck to all those chasing turkeys!

    Way to get it done Daubs. Nice looking Tom. I'm no expert but I'm pretty sure that is a large dog track. One of the cat guys on here may know better than I though?

    55-60 mph winds blew my blind to God knows where. But still got a positive attitude.
