Where Were All These Birds on Opening Day?

Well, Spring Gobbler season officially opened in Virginia last Saturday. Since Virginia does not allow Sunday hunting in anyway shape or form, there’s not much turkey hunters can do until Monday morning. A fellow hunter in Montgomery County, VA sent me a photo of a nice flock of Virginia gobblers he spotted while driving home late Sunday afternoon. I just hope these bad boys decide to come out during the week.

The Lucky One

Montgomery County, Virginia is tucked away in the heart of the New River Valley and I was fortunate to do a lot of whitetail hunting there last season. The deer were runnin’ wild in late October during bow season and they stayed active until the big guns had to be put away. I saw a wide variety of quality bucks and just as many does bringing up the rear.

I set up a trail cam in mid January and started seeing a lot activity in the first few days. Within a week the camera had captured a double drop tine buck. I never saw this monster the whole season. The photos speak for themselves. I hope to see this guy around next year!
