My brother drew it a couple week’s ago, and was only willing to go Sunday morning. Got there and the truck thermostat said 53 degrees with enough moon so that we didn’t need headlamps to get to our destination ( about a 30 minute walk)… We setup tight to a known roost area and waited for daylight. First gobble I heard was in the head we were sitting in behind us. We heard him flydown, along with a few hens, but he came down on the opposite side. Heard a few other gobbling in the distance for the first hour in all directions, so we just sat tight. We had a few hens come through, and then around 10 am this guy came in silent. He was staring at my hen, Jake setup at about 75 yards,but wouldn’t come in. I was purring and soft yelping trying to get him to close the distance. He would take a couple steps forward, and go into strut, but refused to come in…
this went on for several minutes and he finally got to within 40 yards. At this point he turned away and looked like he was going to walk away so he took a load of tss from the 20 gauge to the back of his head… Beautiful morning to be in the woods!
I'm not sure which is harder to get; a redraw or a tirky.
Haven't seen H2O out there still hunting turkeys this season yet, have you?
I wouldn’t know the waterboy if I saw him…😆
Another president put a man in the Lady's bathroom.
Real issue was they circled us and came in silent at our 5 O'Clock. Shot was blocked by my two buddies seated positions. I circled out counter clockwise around the tree and took a seat on the far right of my caller. We never saw the birds come out of either side of the head. Only answer was they backed out of view in the direction of the palmettos. Hunted until 4pm that day. That was the most action Saturday through Monday and I couldn't hunt the final day today unfortunately.
Hopefully I'll be able to get back in the woods before season ends but with having only scouted the WMA for my quota, it's a long shot for success now this season. May have to head out to GS with my bike and see if I can scratch one up.
