 Wolc-- you need a Louder call then that ol push button. 

I also have a flex tone thunder cutn mouth call, which was what first got her attention.  I thought she was another hunter at first, over in the next hedge-row.  
 

The push button Lohman brought her back in the second time.  Time for me to go cut some wood now.  I will try an hour or so in the morning at home tomorrow.  I think my cousin’s kid is hunting back there today.

Somebody is absolutely hammering in the woods behind me.  1 of the Jakes is still here.

You've had a great morning so far my friend! Only thing missing is a long beard!

Saw 10 birds in the woods tues-wed, hens and jakes. The first time in two years (in season. Two years in a row I had close encounters with hens the day before the season started)

Heard gobbles Mon-tues-wed, first time in three years.

So in that way, it was a very good hunt, relatively speaking.

Funny shit last night I’m discing my food plot, audioslave blasting on my Bluetooth in the same field I hunted in the morning and out comes a tom lol.

Had baseball this morning and man was it chilly with that wind.

Birds didn’t gobble much after hitting the ground this morning but I got to see a beautiful show with five Tom’s four hens and a Jake for a couple hours before this one came close enough. Even got to see two hens get breed !

I am in my truck cap blind near the sw corner of our place.  I hear a gobbler going off about every 10 seconds within a few hundred yards.  
 

My decoy is out and I will wait till it gets a little lighter to call.  I am packing my 12 gauge today because it is about a 30 yard shot to the clover patch where I set up my decoy.  That is a bit beyond the effective range of my 16, but right on the sweet spot for this 12 using an extra full choke and 3” lead # 5’s.

I quit at 6:45.  Didn’t hear any gobbles after 6:15.   The next time I go back there, which will be the week after next, I will set up my pop up blind and decoy near the far corner, where I heard the most gobbling today and last Sunday morning.
