Gobblin’ In Dixie
Once again, spring has sprung in the South and turkey season is open in Alabama. I have the privilege to hunt the famed Tombigbee River bottoms in southwest Alabama. This area is rich in whitetails, turkey, wild hogs and basically all game native to the South. I started my hunt well before daylight in an area that hasn’t been turkey hunted for a couple years. I stood on the edge of a whitetail food plot (Tecomate Monster Mix) and decided to just listen for a gobble. At 6:30 a.m. all of nature was starting to come alive. Cardinals were chirping, owls were softly hooting, and geese were flying up the river. This morning the honking of the geese set the gobblers to gobbling. I could hear four different gobblers sounding off to the geese approximately 200 yards off the back end of the Monster Mix field. I quickly moved to the back of the field following the gobbles still on the roost. Once I hit the hardwoods surrounding the field, I began to carefully ease through the woods so not to spook the gobblers. It was still very dark but the woods were starting to illumine with day breaking.
