The Ultimate Sign!

Scouting through my new hunting ground yesterday, I hit an area that looked very promising for this Fall’s hunt. I first stumbled in an area that was all torn up by turkeys! By looking at the ground, I identified Jake droppings and patches of ground all scratched up by turkeys. From there, I found old buck rubs and scrapes. Then, after identifying a solid food source, I was combing through a well used bedding area which then lead me to a deeper, more secluded area. I was sure I was going to find what I was looking for once I got around the corner. Well, lets just say I found what I should have expected…a washing machine! Yikes!

What’s with this? It seems like every bit of beautiful property I have the opportunity of scouting, I always find trash? Didn’t anyone respect the timber back in the old days? Oh well, I just shook my head and continued only to find this around the other corner…go figure! Anyone looking for a car?
