That's right, turkey camp. We head out tomorrow afternoon for a few days. Driving about four hours east. No idea if we are going to see any birds but it sure will be fun trying. Bringing the ARs as well just in case we want to hunt coyote in the evening. The new wall tent will finally get used. Got a bunch of firewood today from the national forest so we can stay nice and warm. Can't wait!
 
Did you pick up a ground cloth for the inside of the wall tent? Hope you bring home a monster bird. Good luck.
It came with a 3/4 floor. Heavy duty stuff too. I was impressed. I will take lots of pics for you guys if the whole experience.
 
We just got back what a great time. These birds were tough. Let's just say birds 8, Pete 0. My wife and I were into them until noon the first day and 10 AM the second. We chased a half dozen of these western birds in the woods but I couldn't close the gap. Day two we had a plan. I had a pretty good idea where bird number one was roosted the day before, so I planned to set up a couple hundred feet away. I was close. Actually too close. We set up almost right under him. Lots of excitement though. Cathy had a ball. It was her first time going after the birds. The kids had fun too. My son in law did not even get a gobble the first day. So day two I told him where to go. I had two birds in this spot the day before. Well, he had four jakes in a group the following morning but at 60 yards and they were too close together.

The camp was ridiculous. This wall tent stuff is plush. Thank God. It got down into the teens at night and in the morning. It was nice to have heat and room to hang out.

Cathy was like, "so what's our next camping trip going to be?"

Awesome pics Pete.... looks like a great time.

I see lots of First Lite gear.... Scheels is having a decent sale on a lot of the First Lite gear in Cipher... Looks like FL is discontinuing the color


I just bought my kid and I the Phantom 3D leafy suit for a steal last week at like $50

Thanks! Their merino wool stuff is excellent. Their gear is not the quality of sitka, but it's a lot less money, and quite frankly, good enough. I put a lot of days into my hunting clothes, I beat on them, and they have held up well.
