The Louisiana turkey season came and went and my streak of 45 years of killing at least one gobbler is still in danger. I didn’t get a bird, despite going several times. But the streak isn’t over. I’m going with some buddies to Texas next week and we’ll see what I can do out there. They’ve lifted the restrictions, so I can go back for the end of their season.
I’ve had some good hunts around here, but just couldn’t get a big gobbler close enough to get a good shot. I hunted with some folks on the old GP reserve and there are getting to be a lot of turkeys there. We had some working, but they were either with a bunch of hens or something would happen to scare them off.
It was a pretty good season around here in Louisiana, but it was strange. The stay-at-home situation had an effect on people even if hunting was open. Anyway, I’ll let you know how the Texas trip goes. It’s been really hot out there, but it’s going to cool off a little bit. I’m glad, but it wont get cool enough to keep the rattlesnakes from being a problem. I always keep one eye on the ground and one eye on the turkeys when we are out there late in the season.
Enjoy the outdoors. Stay safe. And we’ll let you know how we are doing.
