    @Appalachian I had taken off work to hunt so Im trying to make the most out of it

    @Mike yeah you got to, every minute counts, and you definitely feel more obligated when you're burning time off work.
    I got pretty close on my spur of the moment trip to AL. but wasn't able to seal the deal. 2 out of the 3 spots I picked had birds, they just never broke loose from the hens.

    @Appalachian I was going to ask about that. That’s pretty good for Al public land. Its tough

    @Mike yeah, first spot had a little traffic, 2nd had none but no birds at least none gobbling that morning, 3rd spot was by far the best, I feel like if I would have hunted it first I would have spent all my time there and had a good chance at killing. But at least I learned where to start next time and found a much better way to access it.

    @Appalachian more than half the battle is just getting away from people that harass the birds 🤣
