One road and SO many signs!

One road and SO many signs!

In search of our turkeys, we walked down this camp road.  It was around noon and there were some great spots to sit and call from along the way.  Right from the start we knew this was an animal haven!  The tracks and scat were all over the place.  Some of the tracks actually surprised us. 

A fresh bear track. Check out those claws.
Two bear tracks.  A better view of the palm of the paw.
It was like Grand Central Station for turkey up and down both sides of the road.
Turkey tracks and turkey scat.

While we did not see any turkey that day, Brian did call in five Toms the next day.  The great thing about hunting and being outdoors is that you never know what sort of adventures you will have during the day.
