    Turkey season

    Haven't been having that great of a turkey season. Did have two gobblers that I really wanted to shoot but things just didn't work out. Still going at it though...hoping to bust a bird soon.

    I got close this morning.....picture perfect...3 birds I got on them in the roost...they flew down to 50 yards in front of me...they started walking away and I hit the Hendershot call and here they came...1 bird got to within 30 yards so I let it have it..."I thought"...he fly up into a try and then into the bottom like I hadn't even shot at him...not sure what happened...

    Had two going at 6:30AM on the Roost. About 7 I did a couple yelps and a couple fly down cackles. Had a gobbler shock gobble and then got him a little vocal after that and sounded fairly close, but didn't see him anywhere. Then heard another in a different spot on the property. I would call to him and he would gobble and would be quiet for a few and he would gobble a bunch of times in a row looking waiting for me to respond. He just kept doing it over and over again. Then he stopped and shortly after I heard a gun shot. Man had him so fired up and then nothing...did call a hen in 25 yrds from me...lol. Not bad for my first morning out all by myself Smile

    Lol....I called in the one with the beard and patriotic head, but missed him at 10yards on May 3rd. I called him in off the roost, down a hill, over a creek, and up the hill to me...lol. Can't believe I missed! Hard to hit him that close while he was moving. It is all good though...it was awesome calling in my first gobbler all by myself. I normally hunting with others and it was all me for the second time this season.
