What unit is your tag for? I hunted the river bottom down river from Twin Bridges off the SF a few years ago. Lot’s of birds, and not too many hunters if you walk away from the road a little ways.
Up here in north Idaho, we’ve got birds comming out our ears. Last year I probably called in 25 plus toms. I was having so much fun calling and filming that I never even took my bow along. Just followed my partner around with a video camera. Got some good footage, but no good shots. This year, we’ll rethink our run and gun stratagy. Probably have to consider a brushblind or something if we’re actually going to get a shot on film. Could have killed a mound of birds with a shotgun, but then, what fun would that be..
