Have I told you how much I hate public land.

Talk Turkey

Have I told you how much I hate public land.

Saturday morning after dodging tornados all night I got up and went to the Tenn-Tom Corp Land. Usually it is less crowded than the refuge well opening morning looked like a turkey hunters convention. Two trucks were parked in my spot, so I went to another spot and parked. There I am walking down a trail and see a guy 200 yards away waving. :( So I turned around and went back to the powerline set up there. Haven't had my decoy out 15 minutes and the storm clouds rolled in, wind started blowing and raining. I got up already ticked off and got my decoy. I looked up the powerline on a hill top and what do you know 2 guys are standing there one puffing on a cigarette. So I talked to them for a minute and left. That was the crappiest opening morning I have ever seen. I just want to :bash: . Maybe next weekend there will be less people or maybe I will just have to beat them there. Oh by the way did not hear a single bird.

Been there many times, but the good news is the birds aren't really fired up right now and most people will move on to other things (fishing) in a few weeks. Be patient.
