Got it done in Ohio

Post  Maniac Outdoors on Mon May 13, 2013 8:00 pm

Well I headed down to Mick's home this past Friday morning to hunt for a few days, Made my way down there and got situated at the motel. I called up Mick and said I am on my way, Pulled up to the driveway and we just shot the B.S for a minute. A few minutes later the rain started to fall and than the flood gates opened to where the rain was coming down sideways, I just shook my head and said go figure Ohio is gonna kick my ass for turkey hunting just like it doe's for the fall deer hunts! Well it didn't last to long till it slowed down till a slight sprinkle, We both looked at each other and said lets do this. We made our way to the back of Mick's property to locate a bird, he said he hasn't heard any gobbling during the evening hunts. Well we made a few calls and than we heard 2 birds hammering, we got set up on a small knoll waiting on them. We called back and forth for a little while and they just didn't seem to commit to getting any closer, Mick mentioned they was a small creek between the birds and us and that they sometimes won't cross the creek. So we made a dash for it to get a little closer and to finally get a view of what birds we were dealing with. We called again and they were hammering to our calls, the church bells and the motorcycle in the distance so we knew they were some hot birds. We made a choice to go for it and to push the issue since I only had 2 days, We made a few mad dashes and we came up on the winter wheat field where we FINALLY saw the 2 toms. We started to call and the biggest bird was making his was towards us, We had to belly crawl about 5 yards to get behind a bush so we can get it on film. I had Mick do the calling as the bird was making his was down the hill where I would get a crack at him. Mick called him in perfectly for a 40 yard shot! We worked these 2 birds for almost 3 hours in the rain running back and forth thru a heavy thicket and creek. Once we got to the bird we were both like 2 little kids as Happy as can be a few fist pumps, high fives and some bro hugs, It was a very AWESOME hunt. I just want to say Thanks again to Mick for becoming one hell of a hunting partner and a true friend, Thank you Brotha! Here are a few random pics




Us just sitting down and just relaxing, We must have hiked 5 miles up and down the hills and hollars trying to locate some more birds






I happen to look up into the trees and he was just hanging around, SO I had to go catch him. He is about a 6' rat snake that decided to crap all over my hand which stunk for the WHOLE afternoon. Man it was GROSS lol!

I am up for that challenge Vic, when I was younger I use to work at a zoological supply store handling all types of reptiles!
