Didn't take long this morning in 2A. Set up on a flat above a known roosting area. When the red birds started their morning signing, two gobblers went off just down the hill from my position. In the murky gray light of dawn, 3 hens fed up to my position and a full fall was bringing up the rear. I held off till he broke strut, and sent an arrow through his wing butts at 18 yards. The flopping began at 6:20. He has sharp, hooked spurs and a 9 1/2 inch beard. Probably a solid three year old. As I was tagging him, another bird was gobbling good down the hill and across a small creek. He was still gobbling as I carried this guy out of the woods.
