well, the trip was a great bonding time with Brad. Hunting on the other hand was somewhat frustrating. Lots of people hunting in the area where we were, didnt matter that we were over a mile from the road, we had 5 people walk in on us or thru our setup. Brad had one opportunity to shoot a jake on morning of Day 2 but they were on the move and very nervous. stood up and walked 50 yards and saw the reason, a hunter was walking away from the setup. Grrr. thats public hunting for you.
The gobblers were henned up and not responding well, no gobbling except on the roost. hit the ground and silence. typical early season turkey hunting. if i was going to plan another trip out to the hills i would plan it for mid mayish. Saw 77 elk, group of 12 bighorn sheep two days in a row, tons of mulies and whitetails. Overall a great time. if i can work it into the schedule i may try to run back out and have another go at them. wont take the camper this next time, just tent camp and go light.

That does sound like a great time.
Maybe the return trip's hunting will be better.
Good luck if you get back out.
