    What better way to distance yourself than a nice hunt. Even better when the birds cooperate. [​IMG]

    South Carolina. First day today. Was 80 and sunny yesterday woke up this morning to overcast and windy as all hell. Had a real fun hunt with this guy.

    It the time of year when it’s too wet and cold for any tractor time or fishing and turkey season is far away. Only real thing to is hunt for sheds....in between snow storms (we got 5” today). I have heard som toms sounding off so I know spring is coming.... I am getting some overdue inside projects done in our upstate sanctuary.

    We had to cancel our turkey hunt as we stay in a motel and eat in a restaurant. Sure hated to, but we had no choice in the matter. I’m afraid we are on the precipice of a statewide “shelter in place” unless the Covid-19 starts to flatline soon. We weren’t going until the first week of April and had no constraints on dates so we might still get to go if by chance a miracle happens. I will however, enjoy y’all’s turkey hunts to the fullest. Please respond with detailed stories along with spur and beard measurements !o_O

    my business partner has a place down in burke county, GA. He also didnt hear a turkey this weekend - first time that has happened opening weekend in the 20 years he has owned the place.

    Really nice bird - Our turkeys here in AR have really taken a nose dive. Harvest down about 60% over last 15 years.

    We've gone from turkeys being a nuisance during deer season just six years ago to an endangered species in the piedmont o GA.

    Triple, if I could transplant 50 of them off my place, I’d do it in a hear beat. They’ve been hell on my corn and are reproducing far faster than I can thin the numbers:(

    That sounds like a good problem to have. There's plenty of people who would love to help you out with that problem.

    Great looking Tom, I’m quite jealous!

    Got on a few local Hawaiian smallmouth with #2 this weekend. Just doing our part.

    That looks like a great fishing hole. I never imagined Hawaii for mountain stream fishing.
