I NEED SOME HELP…many that follow my blog or follow Life in Camo on Facebook know that I name the birds I usually chase locally in Alabama every season. El Jefe is the only one that I have not ended the chapter on so far and I am going into my third season chasing him. Circumstances have kept him safe…a metal one with barbs and some hardwoods with double painted stripes to be more specific–but I know one day he won’t be able to stand it and he will venture out of his safety zone. Our game cameras have proven that he has!


This year El Jefe is running with two other mature birds which I call the group the Three Amigos: El Jefe (the Boss), El Diablo (the Devil), and Papi Chulo (the MacDaddy). Over the past two weeks a lone tom that we have seen briefly in the past has shown up on game camera. I busted this bird pre-season the first year we scouted this property. Last season, he skirted us, unbeknownst to us he was roosted quietly in a tree within close proximity, flying down late, and using the terrace to sneak around us. He is a tight-lipped, sub-dominant tom so we can’t just come in and locate him and hunt him. I like a challenge and this bird is going to give me that.

img_1962I NEED HELP NAMING THIS BIRD!! I need to name this bird for my blog this season. I am offering a small prize for the winner of the name chosen. This prize package includes a really unique turkey call.

If you have a name, post it as a comment to this blog entry or in a response to my Facebook post. If I choose the name you posted, I will send you a prize package worth up to $100. I will give away this prize package on Sunday, March 26, 2017.

Follow along to see how this season unfolds. Good luck to all the turkey hunters this spring. “Hunt hard, harvest ethically and may your vest be full of feathers….Nancy Jo.”

New Apple Watch band...I am not a big “bling” person so this one is out of the norm for me. I think I like it and the saddle leather smell in my office today is amazing. #applewatchseries3 Venison Stir’s what’s for supper! From the field to our forks! 
#LifeinCamo #CleanEating #Organic #NomnomNomNom I have been sitting at the table typing and Taylor has done everything in her power to try to get my attention. Finally, I slid something over to her to play with and she acts like I offended her!! She has been staring at it for 3-4 minutes as if something is going to pop out of it! #CrazyCat #catsofinstagram You know it’s a change of season when you put away your “GRUNTER” and get out your “HOOTER”! @houndstoothgamecalls  #lifeincamomedia
