I will be there! Had a hell of a time last year only got 2 spring birds and had to bust *** for them. I hunt Lake and Menocino countys. Nothing better than after a long work week to get up at 3 am for 6 :eek: weekends in a row.

I'll be there for spring turkey season this year. I mount a red dot sight on my Beretta Xtrema2 right after duck season and I use a Cabelas Quickset blind so I can pop-up the blind, call, and if nothing comes quickly take down the blind and move on. Here's the grand finale from this year's duck season:

Too bad I live in city limits. I have 25 or 30 turkeys running around in my front yard right at this very moment. Noisy and messy. Some old lady down the street keeps feeding them and they won't go away!

I wish that was my house, but that is very much the same situation. I would love to take a few out for cookin' they sure are fat and happy. I know with my luck one of my peace loving neighbors would have the cops at my door in a hot second. I can't wait to move to idaho.

I guarantee if my front yard looked like that I'd be out there with a .20 caliber air rifle or a bow. Shoot time starts before the sun comes up and the Turkeys will be there before your neighbors are up. You're crazy for not taking any of those Turkeys.

The cops are only an issue if they come with a warrant.

Jeeeeez guys- give it a rest:cool: Go from nice hunting thread to descent into various ways to commit poaching and violate city ordinances......
Get back on the hunting LAWFULLY before the mods close this baby down.

As for me- Fall turkey I always somehow manage to miss...but Spring turkey's another thing. Wish like heck I had some land closer to home(s) with them on it but unlike deer-areas seems I have to drive at least 1 hour to get to where our feathered friends are.........

Just last week while we were calling for coyote with a distressed rodent sound, a turkey gobbled in a nearby bush.... Maybe I'll try that sound again when I go turkey hunting, LOL.

I've had that happen to me too... not with Turkeys but other animals sometimes check out/respond to rodent distress calls. I have on occaision used squirrel distress calls to locate squirrels during grey squirrel season. The older adult grey squirrels will often bark in response to a squirrel distress call, giving away their position.

I will post some pics as soon as I get some good pics of them.

We have about 30-50 wild turkeys at any given time cross on our 45 acres of land.

Back when I had chickens they use to go hang out with the turkeys for like a week or so at a time but always came back I don't think they had the wings to fly and keep up with the turkeys.

Heres the view of where I sit. Although I can only sit for about 10 minutes before I have to walk and see whats over the next hill. I've killed 3 from where i'm standing taking the picture. Killed close to a dozen more in the hills above that flooded pasture.Birds are really tough on this ranch, they dont come easy at all.

Dont worry......you cant poach in Idaho either.

Most sportsmen who hunt wouldnt even think about plinking one of those birds. Losing your hunting and fishing privileges for life would kinda suck.

If you want an "easy" kill just drive around the corner to Safeway. The birds are cheaper, taste better and are already cleaned.

You wouldn't suspect that Turkeys are so agile in the air when you see them walking around displaying their beards. My god can they take off on a dime though!

My favorite part of turkey hunting is driving around them in the road after hunting all morning and not seeing any.
