    I know it's early, but I wanted to be the first to have the "Spring Turkey Hunting" post...Here in SC we have no fall season **bummer** so I have to entertain myself by doing the following:

    1) go to the store and look over the new turkey hunting thingamajigs...

    2) read my turkey hunting books over and over...

    3) watch my NWTF videos over and over...

    4) turn my attention to whitetail deer and squirrel, which brings me to the following subpoint: Isn't it funny that during turkey season, you see a ton of deer, but no turkey - and during deer season, you see a ton of turkey, but no deer....AHH!

    But I am eagerly awaiting Spring!

    You live in prime turkey country, that's for sure. South Carolina has a 5 bird limit in the spring. One of these years I'll come to South Carolina and hunt. Don't have the problem your having there, we have plenty of turkey and deer and I'll see them both everytime out. Saw a nice 170" + deer yesterday and if I'd of had my bow with me, could have easily shot my choice of bucks or does. The only deer I couldn't have shot with a bow was the 170"+, he was over 1/4 miles away. Most of the bucks were 1 1/2 year olds, with one being 115". God bless.
