VA Spring Turkey Gobbling Report

Yup, misleading title for me... I've yet to be sure I've heard a gobble at this point this year. Dad and I have heard a few distant rumblings that we believe were gobbles but nothing that I would bet my life on. I've hunted as hard as I can so far this year and no luck at all. As frustrating as it can be at times it's also what I love about hunting. If it were easy it would be called killing lol. I love the challenge of these old gobblers but I wouldn't mind a break soon either! I put in some serious and hard miles on my boots Saturday and didn't hear or see anything but a couple of hens headed to roost. I'm going to keep hard at it though and eventually my luck will change! After all, luck is hard work and persistence meeting opportunity for the most part!

VA Spring Turkey Season 2010 Update

Spring Turkey season has been open for over a week now in Virginia and Dad and I have found time to go hunting three times now. We haven’t had much luck, we haven’t even heard one gobble anywhere near us but we did see one hen Saturday. We’ve not had very good weather once while we’ve been hunting either. With all of those negative things out of the way I can say we’ve had a good time though! We’ve been in places where we know there are turkeys at but it just hasn’t been the right time. We are going to persevere though and eventually we’ll catch the break we need and we’ll get a turkey or two down!

How are your seasons going? I hope well! Hunt hard and don’t give up!
