    Heard this gobbler sound off way back the ridge from my listening spot at daylight.Went hoofing it back the ridge to a log yard to listen and I had taken the wrong ridge,had to back track to the ridge he was on,he gobbled again and I got set up just getting ready to make a call when here came two sheep dogs down the logging road right by my setup.I think the bird got busted by the dogs because he quit gobbling.I didnt make a call for at least 30 minutes to let the bird to calm down,I finally sent out 3 light yelps to him and he gobbled.I was set up at the head of a drain between the two ridges and I saw his fan break the ridge,when he came in to full view I saw movement behind him and 3 deer went within a few feet of him but he didnt spook.When I shot him the deer were still standing close to him.The good Lord was with me on this hunt because two dogs scared him and the 3 deer walking right by him and I still killed him!
