Slim Pickens… We’re Eatin’ Chickens

It sure has been an interesting two days of hunting here in Southeast Kansas. I made the drive to Clayton’s so we could go after those crazy turkey birds. We thought for sure we could fill a tag or two before the Missouri opener… we were way off. We have seen 3 hens in 3 hunts. We haven’t heard a single gobble! Not a single one. None. Zilch. Notta. We haven’t even seen a Gobbler or a Jake driving past fields! Hahaha about all I can do is laugh. That’s why they call it hunting. We did have a pretty cool encounter the first morning though… a nice coyote decided to investigate the decoys and I gave him a surprise!

The trip was a blast hanging out with Clayton and his family!
