YeeeeeeHawwwwww. Pics soon. We saw 22 birds and 11 were gobblers. We had a gobbler come on a string to seventy yards and a dang hen cut him off and he strutted with her forever at seventy yards. The big flock was down at the end of the bottom when all of a sudden Carley said dad theres a gobbler running towards us wide open. This bird covered 300 yrds in a split second. He never slowed down he ran in and crashed into our jake decoy. He broke the stake off and was standding on top of it pecking its head when she put the hurt on him. This has been the wildest weekend weve ever had. We are still very fortunate to have a ton of birds in my area. The gobbling this morning was off the chain. Those turkeys fought and beat the snot out of one another for thirty minutes. It was something to see i tell ya.

    You need to go in the market making those hay bale blinds. Everyone has now seen how good they work and people would be standing in line to buy one from you. Congrats on bird #2.
