    When I got off work last hitch cane straight to Al to see my son and get ready to head to FL. I also always hunt down here while I’m down here. That first Friday I got three located, Saturday got set up but they wouldn’t play along they pitched down in the other direction and one got killed. Sunday called them in to about 75-80 yards, they saw my hen decoy and locked up and I would t take the shot. That afternoon we left for FL to go hunt Osceolas. Got back Tuesday afternoon, hunted them Wednesday morning called them to the edge of the field and they wouldn’t cross the fence. Went home for a few days, hunted Ky opening day, had to leave Saturday afternoon. Got back Saturday night was going to hunt Sunday morning but had tornadoes rolling through. Monday, set up about 100 yards closer to the roost but a front had rolled through Sunday night and they were just shut down. Got up Tuesday morning actually a little late, got set up and they started hammering about 0615, gobbled on the roost until 0715 flew down and shut up. I’d been throwing a yelp or click out every few mins. At 0745 I’m responding to a text from the gf, he short gobbled once, then two of them step out at 75 yards, one is blowed up strutting the other is just watching acting skittish. He turns back to the woods I let out a cut the one breaks strut sticks his head out and I sent a loaf of #7 tss to his head. He just did the flop then and there. Got to him, realized it was farther than I thought it was ranged it, turned out to be 75 yards, it’s one of those times I’m glad I didn’t know how far it was because I’d have passed the shot, but everything cane together flawlessly and had a great end to my season
