We walked down to neighbor Jack's pasture this evening and marked the location where the blind will go up tomorrow morning. It will be an interesting experience as there are cows and calves in the pasture now. They are curious critters and I'm sure once they spot the blind in the morning, they're going to come right over to investigate. I'll be taking pictures to share with you tomorrow afternoon.
Everyone we've talked to so far this turkey hunting season has different stories to tell of how the turkeys have been behaving. So far we haven't heard the same story twice, so we have no idea what to expect. The only thing I do know is that if a turkey comes within 9, 11, or 13 yards of the blind and it's my turn to shoot, we're going to be eating turkey for dinner!
This photo shows the results of my practice session today. I love my new Mathews bow. It's hard to believe a bow can make such a difference in accuracy, but I was never able to shoot this good consistently with my old Parker. Rick got his new Mathews bow a few weeks ago and his shooting is even better than mine.
