We don't start here in PA until May 1st which allows for some extracurricular travel to neighboring states that start earlier. After getting my tail whipped mid-April in Virginia I took a shorter drive to the Armpit of America...New Jersey. As it often goes when painting a particular place with a broad brush, there are always exceptions. This particular area of New Jersey is just that, beautiful rolling ag fields with hardwood bottoms and gentle ridges. A nicely written letter landed me a 500 acre slice of longbeard heaven. My brother and I both scored our first morning there and were done by 9:15 on Friday. While he ended up with what turned out to be a super jake (he would be pissed if he knew this was posted) it was especially sweet to see him shoot one after missing several of the past few seasons due to his commitment to the US Army. I imagine there is little to no traffic on these forums from NJ but I'm here to tell you there is some great turkey hunting in the Armpit.
