Default Quick hunt

Saw a gobbler and hen yesterday evening just before fly up time. Made my way up a road to that spot this morning at 6:30. Just as I got to the spot I busted one off the roost above me

I backed off the road 30 yds and as soon as my arse hit the ground, the gobbler sounded off 70 yds behind me.

He gobbled every 20-30 seconds he was in the tree. I gave a quite tree call and he responded so I hushed. He pitched down in the road in front of me and headed away. 1 yelp and he went into strut and turned and came back.

Butsed him a 30 yds.

11 1/2" beard

1 1/4" spurs

I was at work by 7:30

Nice work Duffy. But you need to work on your story telling skills. So much more could be said about your hunt I'm sure. Congrats.

Nice bird. I wouldn't have went to work. I would have stayed home and celebrated the morning kill with a day full of white can beers.
