I live and hunt in Louisiana on my property and I've been hunting south Tex. for over 10 years and love it. I also hunt Arkansas.

I see birds pretty regular on the way to my place in that first little mesquite flat surrounded by all the ag. fields at the corner of 87 and Ft. McKavett road.

Well Florida hunt went well. I was able to take my osceola on the first day. Heard 8-12 birds on roost however they hit the ground and went opposite direction with the hens. I was able to get back on them mid morning and called in two longbeards and killed the biggest of the two. 9.5in beard, 1 1/4 spurs, and weighed right at 17lbs. Not the 1.5in spurred osceola I wanted, but I have completed my slam now according to the NWTF. However, I know the bird I shot in Nebraska was a hybrid which is why I am going to Wyoming this year along with other states to get not only finish the slam but also get a single season slam.

I will once I get back home. That ride is absolutely miserable by the way. It isn't like driving out west and having something cool to look at.

Beautiful bird Clark! I think the greens and reds in an Osceola’s feathers are the prettiest!

Good luck everyone. I will post updates in here as I am able. Seems like this last week spypoint cams have showed less and less Turkey activity. Has it been raining south of San Antonio?

Yea that's what's got me a little worried. Buddy did tell me he saw quite a few stutters blowed up in a field on his property ystdy. Cams just ain't showing many birds lately. A week ago there would be birds on cam all day. Now just a handful of pics. I'm hoping the birds have finally broke up and are just out trying to pic up ladies. I have never had problems with birds here before so we shall see.

Good luck to you folks that are hunting turkeys for the first time. You may find you enjoy it so much that it becomes an annual ritual. For me, it's everything other than a couple of dove and hog hunts, its what I look forward to each year.
