Last week, I documented my first three hunts of the 2016 season, and Tuesday morning, April 19, I was again up at 5:30 a.m. I decided that I would just find a concealed spot, put a hen decoy out, call a little, and be patient.
When I arrived at the area, I wanted to hunt, I found a spot near where I knew turkeys sometimes enter the field. I cleared a small area out between two small cedar trees, then stepped off 25 yards and placed the hen decoy. I went back and crawled into my makeshift blind, and as the sky started to lighten, I prepared to wait motionless until 10 a.m.
