    7E126797-679A-47EC-8AAF-99FF6C60D3CE.jpeg Been a tough year since the birds aren’t using my spot much this year. My buddy was nice enough to let me go over on him which is next to me and hunt this morning. No gobbling on the roost but he fired up once on the ground. I called him across a creek into my field in about 20 minutes. I had one hen decoy and he came trotting in ready for some love once he saw her. Once again the lady did him in. 18.5 pounds. 1 1/8 spurs. 10.5 inch beard. 27 yards with 3 inch 6s Longbeard XRs.

    Awesome. I tell you what a couple years ago they gobbled hard on the limb every morning till june 12th. At the house. An they may have gobbled more then that i just remember hearing them every morning before i left for work up untill june 12th then it petered out. Its gets tougher toward the end but they will still take that last piece if they get the chance. Haha sound familiar. Haha just kidding im happly married but you get my point. Ha
