The week long projected weather forecast is calling for highs in the mid to upper 60’s and little to no chance for rain!  WOOOPPPEEEEEE!!!!  A perfect temperature for a youth turkey hunt weekend!

Yesterday I took a look at Google Maps of the area where this hunt is going to take place and I noticed a couple of small ponds that I did not know were there last year.  Of course last year was our first time hunting this area and what we did see was all new to us.  However, these two newly discovered ponds could just lead a young hunter onto a big old tom bird.  They are located just down a drainage that Wapiti and I saw a very nice tom strutting next to a large pond of water.  So that big boy and his hens were down in there before heading back up the drainage to their roost that evening.

I think that spot deserves a looking into as a spotter.

Today will be dedicated to getting my things in order and contacting some of the guys who have volunteered to help with the camp set up and take down.  A couple of them have not responded to my emails and so I’ll have to call them.  Not a problem as we have almost got everything in order for the camp.  A couple more cooking stations and coolers seems to be about all there is left to have promised.
