    Turkey opener in NJ today

    A zone 7 dirt nap for this gobbler early this morning. I had 4 gobblers going nuts on their roost only to fly down across the road from me and shut up. It took 1 1/2 hours to bring them over, but when they did come, the 2 gobblers I called in were silent. This one stopped at 35 yards and is now dinner. Hope some of you guys are getting out there.

    Haha, thats right where I head up for the opener May 3. We are outside Canadarago Lake.

    So pissed, this is the first year in many where I missed the NJ lottery and my zone is always the first to sell out. Theres tons of activity around this year too. Been seeing a nice flock near the house with a big old Tom and theres a bunch of single and double Jakes running around the woods here too. Now I gotta put all my eggs into the NY weekend basket.

    Glad you had such a great start, Rusty!

    I think that BigBow is talking about the Fly Creek Cider Mill.

    And those fish are chubs and carp that are continually fed day old doughnuts.

    Not in the pond, in the stream. Maybe there are some of those too and I dont doubt they get fed, but I def saw some big ass trout in that creek.
