Default Quick hunt #2

This one was roosted on the opposite ridge. He flew across a river, a paved road and a field to get shot in the mouth at 7:15.

There you go again.....sounding all negative. Here's what happened. He got his ass out of bed because he wanted to kill a turkey. He killed one. Had nothing do do with a lack of hens (not the case anywhere in Ga) or playing some siren song on a mouth call. He's a hunter. He got up and was blessed to kill a turkey. Lord help it might have even been one of those canned private land hunts.

Na, I'm far from being a great caller. Main thing is getting on the right turkey at the right time. And position is key on these mtn birds. Way more important than calling ability, imo.

Now, I don't mean this as "I've got this figured out". I've hunted these dumb birds long enough to know they can humble you in a hurry.

This one wasn't fenced. He had 30,000 acres to roam that all Publicans of Georgia can hunt.

Let me congratulate you double, I didn't realize they were the elusive, magical public land mountain birds that everyone are in such awe of

I've always heard they won't respond to a call but once and if you blink fast twice, they are gone to another mountain, never to return and it takes a special kind of hunter to kill a MTN gobbler. No way a middle GA hunter like myself could ever even hear one, much less KILL one.

Just messing with you, but that is the way mountain game is talked about. There is no telling how many birds my Dad has killed on the north GA wmas over the years and he acts like a turkey is a turkey.

I know another guy that hunts nothing but the mountains and kills enough turkeys to supply Hosea Williams' Thanksgiving giveaways

I'm too fat and lazy to climb those mountains. I'll stick to my middle/North Georgia counties
