No, The water wasn't up yet. It was down about 4 ft. I am going to try and make it back over in a couple of weeks. I am going to go for turkey this weekend.

Sounds good. The deadline for submitting stuff to the editor for the next issue of the newsletter is May 1. I expect to see your smiling face over a big, fanned-out gobbler in the next issue! Good luck.

This is the first time turkey hunting will be lucky to see one.

Dale,

Yes, the water was low but was rising steadily each day.  On Monday I located carp pooling up for their move into the shallows and got several shots landing 5 in the 10-12 lb. range. Cool weather and clouds moved in on Tues. so I came back on Wed.  Warm weather will trigger them again any day.

I will warn you Chris; I understand that getting addicted to turkey hunting without a blind can lead to serious self-degradation. The best archery hunters I know will only occasionally kill a bird and swear that nothing compares. Have fun!

Well I didn't get my bird but Jennifer took a nice bearded hen with a borrowed shotgun. I only got to hunt half a day. They were gobbling but wouldn't come in. But we used a blind.

Congrats to Jennifer! Is it her first turkey?

Yes that was her first turkey. This was the first time we went turkey hunting.
