blackbeltbill Posted November 6, 2016 Share Posted November 6, 2016 This is a great forum that I will start using even though, I use pen and paper. So, I struck out in New York this Fall Turkey season of 2016. My friend Jeannine almost got her jake though as I posted a few weeks back. That was one huge jake flying out of that tree! It flew up as well at maybe a 30 degree angle and not that fast. Jeannine just missed and was so excited that she could not get another shot off. She was so happy to see turkeys feeding on the ground before I flushed them all. They were not going to commit to my calls and I had to make a split second decision to sprint at them. Some flew left and others-INCLUDING the brood hen ran to the right. And a few flew up to close by trees. One was Jeannines fat jake. I did not see that bird land- but Jeannine did!!! She race walked to that tree and just missed when he flew out as I wrote above. It was the perfect flush EXCEPT that the brood hen called from where she ran to. The flock did not return to the break site and that brood hen started that non stop assembly yelping within 30 minutes! THIS IS A SIGN OF A FLOCK THAT HAS BEEN FLUSHED ONE TOO MANY TIMES. But taking Jeannine out and putting her on turkeys made my Fall 2016 season! 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
