I got to turkey hunt yesterday. Called in eight different jakes. Fun to watch but we don't shoot jakes on this farm. They are next years crop ;) Looks like a good one. Two long beards came in to about 80yds and decided to whup some jake butt.

An old old longbeard made an appearance and hung up where I could see him 150yds away. I kept him in the area and within sight for almost 3hrs :o He wasn't henned up just hung up by himself. He's a nice one, gonna have to change strategies a little.

Tomorrow or Tuesday, I'm hoping for another chance.

Not gonna be able to chase him today or tomorrow. And I got other Easter weekend plans. So a rematch will have to wait. :(

Anyhow, this is the culprit that was tormenting me. He's got two little jake buddies with him. Sorry it's so blurry he was at least 150yds away when I took this.

Go get him Leo. Just get him in close and give him what for.
