The turkeys in Florida are like a lot of the country’s birds, ahead of schedule. The birds are just not acting and reacting like normal. We had a couple of gobblers answering us yesterday, but none really interested. Today, the weather was a lot cooler, but we had dense smoke from a controlled fire covering our whole hunting area. The smoke made it difficult to breath, and everyone left with stinging runny eyes, and a rawness in our throats. Those poor animals have no relief from it.
Dale had a gobbler hang up at 200 yards. Maybe tomorrow for him.
I managed to get a shot on a young bird, this was my first Osceola Turkey! He came into my line of sight, making a beeline for the decoy.
Tomorrow I will be sitting in a stand that has had some hog activity recently. Hopefully the smoke clears and the air is once again clean. Make sure everyday you “love the life you live”!
