After the hike I found a different place to park and get into that valley easier so I going there on Friday and scout the trails and hopefully put a gobbler to bed. if nothing else be able to scout the trails that I will be hiking in the dark the next morning. This will be an easier hike for us when we have our gear. than the ridge trail

I see what you guys are saying about the blind, the terrain is fairly steep around there so even if I were to be able to locate the turkeys ahead of time I don't think I can set it up so its best to stay a bit mobile which I bought some gear for that as well.

On Sunday we went on a hike close to home and were able to practice stalking and calling in turkeys. I also been practicing my calls on a flock of turkeys I see near the road almost every morning when I drive my kids to school. Really excited to give it a try this weekend, if my daughter shoots a turkey that would be awesome regardless its going to be a great adventure!


I learned some other very important things on the trip
  • Bring much more water, my daughter drinks like a fish, even though I had a large capacity camel back we still ran out of water at the end.
  • bring better maps, I was using a crappy one I downloaded off the internet that didn't show the trails as well, so was not sure of where I was going. since then i have found some better maps and really looked over the area with Google earth.
Be careful where you park and hike. There are several areas of private land within the wildlife area.
