There is something that seems darn near miraculous in the way an old turkey hunter can stroll out in the thin light of pre-dawn, over a ridge socked clean in with fog and come up a half-mile further on, set up next to an old log and wait, to be rewarded a quarter of an … Continue reading
Over Easter, I was finally able to make it back down to Turkey Camp. It was a quiet morning at the new Honey Hole when all of a sudden. . . Podcast — The Galloping Gobbler Click on the link. It runs about about a 1/2 hour right after I got up to stretch. If … Continue reading
It has taken quite a while for me to get this podcast together. The wind was brutal this morning, the first Monday of 2015 Kentucky Spring Gobbler. This was the day SuperCore and I got matching bookend gobs about a half hour apart. Mine was roosted with hens over by Lazy Boy, where #3 son … Continue reading
This is my first Yute Season in many years where I did not have a yute to bring with me. Angus is now too old, and grandaughteer #1, Mooselette, just turned 3. She and I have been hunting turkeys in the backyard when she comes to visits. It must be genetic. So here it is … Continue reading
I probably would have stayed back in town this weekend, but the temperature was cold enough that I thought I might freeze the pipes at Turkey Camp if I was not there. Indeed, the temperature was 17F and still falling when I went out armed with the recorder and my trusted mug of coffee. I … Continue reading
Just under a month separates me from The Spring Opener. This was my first trip out to the Honey Hole. It seemed like I’d just gotten up and left last week, even though it had almost been a year. I was formulating a spiel about what to do when faced with complete silence when several … Continue reading
This was our first weekend back at Turkey Camp. It had been a harsh winter, but the cabin was in one piece, and the deer and turkey both seemed as though they had not suffered too much. A week ago there had been a foot of snow on the ground. Now it was still a … Continue reading
etter late than never, here is the best of about 40 hours of recording. This is not like my other podcasts, because it is just raw turkey sounds with no commentary, no banjo music. The original recordings were from mid-April on a morning where all heck broke loose at the Honey Hole. I had several gobblers come in on me, but I could never get the cross-hairs on them. I selected the source tracks, because they were particularly clean and mixed it so it would be perfect wake-up music. Continue reading
We’re just in from Turkey Camp– end of Week #1 of KY Spring Gobbler Season.
In between doing battle with the gobblers, I’ve been trying to edit down the podcast of Angus’ last hunt as a yute. It was a challenge– a lot of wind noise in the original sound. Some of it may sound a little funky, and there were three setups before we finally got a shot at a gobbler.

It has been a good year back at Turkey Camp. After such a horrible winter, it was good to have decent weather. We have had 3 good weekends. The only thing that has not been cooperating has the turkeys. Oh, they have been there, all right. They just have not been all that vocal. This … Continue reading
