Been a crazy busy week. Saturday got my son out for youth Turkey in PA while I was sick as a dog and really didn’t want to go. I’ve never called in a male bird and only have been trying for two years. Anyways we get set up in the hedge row between both fields with a Jake and hen decoy at 5:15. At 5:50 three gobblers start going off right where we thought they’d bee 400 or so yards off.
at about 6:00 i start calling and their responding.
6:20 I can tell their on the ground but then they shut up.
6:55 I see them enter our field all three strutting with two hens.
7:10 looks like their leaving and we think about making a circle around the property. As soon as we get the gun and unloaded and to the edge of the hedge row I see their fans again coming up our way.
7:30 their coming in slowly and finally see our decoys. two toms perk right up and go right after the Jake decoy. POW, my son missed at 25 yards and they flew off back to the roost area.
we both had an AWESOMe Time, first time Near strutters for the both of us. Wont forget this one anytime soon.
