The hunt is everything, as you say, Charlie. If you get a bird, that's a premium.

Yesterday I hunted from before daylight until 11am never heard anything. Got up this morning and fixed a cup of coffee and went out on the back porch. Guess what was standing in the yard. Yep a turkey.We saw each other at the same time.

It is a frustrating sport for sure. But fun and addictive too
