So far this year the gobblers are winning the game, had a nice strutter at 60 yards this morning but couldn't pull him any closer. Back and forth all morning long. Had some others around him so that didn't help matters.
Making it tuff on me this year only had one other morning I felt the gun was going to go pop. The rest have been fairly un-eventfull.
Did watch 3 bears yesterday.

It's been a weird year for us Virginia Elite Outdoors(I'm including me & 2 other of our guides). It has been either really good... meaning the turkeys have been really hot and came right in.... or really bad meaning they only gobble a couple times on the roost and thats it. We have been fortunate to take advantage of the 'good' and have 7 kills for the clients with some really nice birds. I think just like the bass.... the weather has been a little tricky the last couple weeks. Another "funny" note is that we have seen more pairs of gobblers together this year than in the past. Not sure what the reasoning for that is.

5 out of the 7 we have taken have come from South Hampton County, 1 from varina(Henrico), and 1 from Hanover.

If you can get access to some land in South Hampton or Sussex for turkey hunting I would. I'm telling you they are over run with them down that way. On 1 particular farm we heard 25 different birds one morning while scouting... it's crazy.... I think everyone deer hunts down there but noone turkey hunts.
