Default 1st one down

Lots of gobbling Saturday morning. Fanned in a jake and bird that had a full fan, but about a 3-4 inch beard. Could have been beard rot, but he didn't want any part of me when we got about 50 yards from each other. I let them walk and then got set up on this bird. He and another one flew a creek about 60 yards in front of me. I was set up for them to walk down the creek bank so I got to watch them stand there and gobble until they said "eff it" and flew the 5-6 ft across to the other bank. They both walked right to me gobbling.

He was one of the heaviest I've killed...20+ lbs easy.
