I know the area well Jim - beautiful country abounding with everything a hunting or fishing man could want. Or for the man who just wants to lead a quiet life. It's a lot like Vermont's Northeast Kingdom where I hunt.

Son Tim smoked this fine Maine gobbler this morning with his 1878 underlifter using 5.5 shot, 3 1/4 dram FF in a roll crimped, once fired paper shell handload. Old tom covered hundred yards quickly crossing stonewall at thirty yards and walked up to 17 yards. We are just starting to find some lone longbeards so the best is yet to come!

Lenny drove down from Denmark, Maine on Sunday evening so he and I could hunt together this morning in an area we have been exploring for a couple of years.

This morning we set up on a stone wall bordering a big field where we had spotted turkeys before, We thought we knew where to set up but it turns out the turkeys proved us wrong. Four or five toms began gobbling on roost from the ridge above the field. So Lenny and I grabbed our stuff and took a circuitous route to the top of the ridge... puff... puff...

We were amazed by the amount of turkey scratchings, buck rubs, beds, mast trees of all kinds.... it was a hunter's paradise.
We decided to spread out about 60-70 yards apart and sit. We put out our decoys and began calling seductively.............. crickets...

We texted that we would sit until 9 and after another 40 minutes of sitting, I stood up at 8:58......... And a Tom gobbled about 100 yards away. I put my seat pad back down, put my gillie head mask back on and sat back down. We were talking to at least three toms and a half-dozen hens and they were staying back in the low blueberry bushes just out of sight for at least a half-hour. They wouldn't come any closer than about 60-70 yards. Lenny was staring at two of the toms for more than ten minutes while I kept talking to them. I never saw any of them... But we learned a great new spot and we'll definitely be back next year.
