Missouri Turkey Weekend #2

Yep, you are right. That is not a picture of a turkey. Needless to say I am still turkeyless.

Friday morning was the best weather I've had thus far. I had put some tom's to bed the night before and was amped for the morning hunt. The birds gobbled like crazy on the roost, but it was a different story when their feet touch the ground. The gobbles faded along with my hunt. I had a pair of jakes come in and I passed. The tom that was with them, well, he had other plans.

The wind picked up by mid day and never stopped. Even at night, there was no letting up. It's had to sleep in your vehicle when it's constantly rocking back and forth. Never got sea sick in a vehicle before. I ended up lighting out Saturday afternoon, a day early. The wind was suppose to blow through the night and into Sunday. I bailed.

I did however get into some fish again. Not like the weekend before, but it was still entertaining. I was also able to find some dandy shrooms. My dinner was as organic as it gets. Fish I had just caught with some freshly picked shrooms. I think I eat better living out of my vehicle than I do while I'm at home.

Still no turkey and still a sucessful weekend. I am a bit nervous about how weekend #3 is going to pan out. Between what work will allow me to do and how this crazy spring weather is going to hold out. Only time will tell...
