Yeah they are fun, i miss being able to chase them, i just sit in the blind anymore, its nothing like runnin to them, but better than setting on the couch, i got after one several years ago, first gobble was at 5.20 am, i killed him about 5 pm, he answered me all day long, but was always ahead of me, never laid eyes on him all day till i killed him, he was following 14 hens, a little while, before i killed him, i figured out they were going right back to where they roosted, after a all day adventure, i killed him less than a hundred yards, from where he first gobbled on the roost that morning.Nothing gets my heart going like those dang birds. First shot one pitched off into my lap at about 7 yards flat missed no excuse. Second one he had me twisted all up. As a right handed shooter those right side approaching birds give me issues.
