Overall Impression: great time, I'd like to go back

I have hunted turkey for ten years and have taken all the subspecies, but had never hunted turkeys with dogs, so, it was off to Candor, NY to give Turkey Trot Acres a try Oct 12 & 13, 2009. At the Trot, it's two hunters per guide, and hunters are taken to areas with likely habitat and, most likely, fresh turkey sign. Much walking results while the dog searchs for birds and turkeys just don't often 'break' or 'bust' in a nice scatter when they are found. However, having turkeys coming at you (regathering) from all directions is quite a thrill when it does happen. I took a hen at the end of my second day. Pete, and all his guides have years of experience at fall and spring turkey hunting, these guys are experts. I particularly enjoyed the laid back atmosphere of the lodge. Despite a lot of walking, a person is not likely to lose any weight on this hunt, good food. The dogs are just as serious about what they are doing as the guides, overall, this was a really great experience.
