The fall turkey season is upon us, and I am a little bit excited! Anyone else going out for the fall bird? If so share your story please and maybe a pic of the bird. Where did you get that bird? I hope to be heading out this coming sunday morning. Hope I do better than I did in the spring - lol.

Let me just say I like the new zone set up. I'm in zone 2, which just happens to be directly right under my feet. :D

I'm new to Wi. and never had a chance to hunt in fall for turkey before (no fall season in So. Cal.)

Last season I got my permit request in just at the deadline and didn't even draw one of my (seven ?) choices, ended up with one on the other side of the state.

Never even got a chance to drive out there.

But this is exciting now, I can finally scout where I live , I know the area pretty well and know where some flocks are, and where they are (usually) headed.
And I know which fields are open to public hunting in my area so I can intercept them. This will likely be my best chance ever to get one.

But,

So far since this season started I have yet to see or hear any gobblers, just some hen's and little poult's. I'm holding out for a big one until the last week of the season...

The dairy farms should be clearing some feed corn soon I hope, which should open up some good scouting opportunities throughout the area.

Best of luck to you guys
