Saw zero birds on Wednesday, seven toms and a jake (Thursday), no interest in my decoys. Last Saturday, daylight until noon, I had three jakes in decoys; they left and I called them back. Too bad for one of them.
Took a short walk and found half of an 8-point, last year’s shed. How did I miss it from last year? Can never figure those out.
The jake was fat, full of corn and green grass. Can’t figure out where he got corn. Looked like corn you find in an old corn field, not (the) kind someone would feed.
