Saturday May 10th
Well we did not get a chance to get out on Friday cause of rain, but we did get out on Saturday and this was the last chance for Woody to bag his bird. The day started out just like the others with birds yelling in all different directions. I decided to set up on the closest bird and so we did. The bird gobbled a few times and did not come in, but while I was calling this bird another one was just screaming his little head off. After some time I decided to go after the screamer. Just like everything else the bird went quiet. I told Woody that the bird was on top of the ridge and that we had to go up this ridge. I gave a few calls but with no answer. As we neared the top I came eye to eye with the bearded one, this great myjestic bird. As he took flight out across the hollow I could see he was of the pre-historic type. He was in the 24 to 26 pound class and Woody just let his jaw drop as the bird just flew away. As it may be I was just upset with myself but Woody took it all in stride and like Donald Trump said "YOUR FIRED". I got a slight beating with his ball cap, a beating I truely needed NOT. We did not give up and we proceeded to march off in another direction in persuit of another bird. Hark what was that I heard. AH another gobbler, we moved in and tried to seal the deal. but now dice this bird was not coming to us no matter what I sounded like. So as the gobblin got softer and softer as the bird moved away we made another hike in search of another bird. Woody was glad that he could toat the shotgun around and keep ole hopalong moving. We moved to a large field and sat down a spell and just took in all of Gods' beautiful work, if ever there was peace it was here. As we decided to leave we remonised about all the days that we got to hunt together and we knew that it was not about the kill but the adventure, memories that will not leave our minds for a long time to come. It was my greatest pleasure to be able to take my Brother out and I will never forget those few days. So the adventures have not ended they have JUST BEGUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
