Md Turkey Season
« on: May 01, 2021, 08:22:44 PM »
Been a good season here in md this spring I saw a lot of birds and had a lot of close calls before filling both tags.  This year was odd the birds were pretty decoy shy but was nice to hunt as much as I did.

I killed my first last Friday then after that I spent a couple mornings before work trying to kill one with my bow on some backyard birds. It was a big flock of birds 6 gobblers, 3 jakes and 6 or so hens. They would pitch down every morning then work up and down the backyards of a row of houses.  If I could have set up in the yard and hunt it would have been a quick one but with it being so wide open I didnít want the neighbors seeing me and loosing permission.  So I was setting up just inside the wood line. These birds just wouldnít leave the yards when they would come through they didnít care for the decoys much either. Friday I did have two come in to 10 yards but had a tree in the way the whole time. 

This morning I set up with just a single hen decoy right on the edge of the yard. Had 4 gobblers come in and had shots at 3 of them but didnít as the one in the back had a rope and was hoping to get him. Unfortunately he didnít offer me a shot and they worked on past me.  Hour later I started hearing a bird gobbling up on the ridge they roost on and ditched the bow and grabbed my gun circled around him and set up. I made two calls and he came right in and I shot him at 30.

Headed to Pa to hunt for a few days on next week hopefully the luck continues up there.

Nice recap, congrats. Nothing like hunting more than you expect to.
It's not being cocky if you can back it up!
