One spring turkey season opener a few years back, I had spent the first two hours of the morning hunting a new and promising spot in the farm country of the Southern Zone. Because of the drive to get there, I didn’t roost any birds the evening prior, but my scouting efforts indicated plenty of turkeys in the area. 
That sunrise hunt turned out to be uneventful and as I sat on the edge of a big cornfield I could not help but let the inevitable urge to move overcome me.
