A little late to the party but this ole boy took a spring tag. Wouldn’t commit to any calling. Only respond. So pick his pattern up and play his game...
10” beard .. 1-1/4spur .. 23.5#5acfcb7ec61a42a7029a1e5a7413a518.jpg

Got him! Sat on the edge of a field with a Jake and hen deke until about 830. Didn't see or hear squat. Decided to go for a walk. Walked along the top of the ridge along the creek while trying to get one to gobble with a few clucks here and there. Saw some movement at the bottom towards the creek. Turned out to be 2 gobblers and a hen. Hen is moving at a steady pace to my left while the toms are holding back a little and strutting. I crawl back away from the ridge out of their sight and get a head of them a few yards. I'm laying prone on the ridge and they slowly walk in to range going in and out of strut. I think the other bird was bigger but this one was about 12 yards closer and had a beard so he ate the pellets. Guessing a 2 year old, 9 inch beard, 7/8 spurs. Boring hunt turned into a fun hunt real fast!5b0564245320e99adebb79dfe3889af5.jpg

That’s an interesting setup.  It’s going to be pretty difficult to keep an eye on the approaching gobbler, if one responds.

I went to Little Valley yesterday. When I pulled in Wed evening there were 2 red heads in the field not 40yds from my blind. Got up and listened at first light no gobbling. Sat in the blind and 2 hens showed up and I got 1 cranked up, she cucked and yelped at me for almost an hour! Not 1 gobble. Went for a stroll around 10 and never heard anything.  My buddy went back to the blind and had 1 gobble 4x behind the blind but it wouldn't come out to the field.  Oh well that's turkey hunting, It was a beautiful day to be in the woods!

I haven't got my mom a gift yet, but I just thought up a perfect one.  I should have an hour or so to kill (litteraly), prior to church on Sunday.  

My wife and kids were not crazy about it, the last time I brought home a shot-up wild turkey.  Something about the blood and guts turned them off I guess. 

Maybe I can kill a tom for mom, on Mothers day morning behind her house, with the little .410 that grandpa bought for her when she was a little girl. 

Wouldn't that be a "special" gift ?  I will remove the breast and hand it to her in a zip lock bag.  Tentatively, I am planning on fishing Saturday morning (maybe she will also get a fresh lake Erie walleye).

 I am going to at least give turkey hunting one more shot on Sunday. We gave my nephew permission to turkey hunt our place, so I dont want to horn in on his action at home.  He did a great job on the concrete work in my new pole barn.  I might get one last shot at spring turkeys, up in the Adirondacks, when we visit the in-laws on Memorial day weekend.

My mom would freeze that, put it in a pillow case, and beat me half to death with it
