Rich --GREAT fish---
Been trying for henned up Turkeys for days - gobble on the roost and then go silent with hens.
Have watched them from afar and tried to get one to veer off without any luck.
Today no dawn gobbling or sightings then about 645 hear a gobble or two from well over 600 yards
What the heck he's far off and strutting soooo gave a long loud cackle--he responded but wouldn't move.
I went about halfway to him as he sounded off now and then and took up a spot and gave a softer cackle.
He had been so far off I had barely been able to hear him and he was still a few hundred yards off on another property.
He went silent- and I hoped he was coming in quiet- orrr he could have folded up and left ????
Half hour later I took a different call ( like to change the voice now and then) and peeped and gave a soft cluck.
There he was sneaking in on me--- big long double beard.
Got him at 755- had taken over an hour to work him
Can take 5 a year here but I have a one and done mentality with lower numbers out there so its over this year.
Now for those crop damage Deer I have been seeing.
