Exciting Morning Yesterday and Today
Posted 13 May 2006 - 10:00 AM
This morning He and I went right out back of my house and on the way out to our spot the turkeys started gobbling. Don't know exactly what time it was but it was still dark. Well they came down at the far end of the field except for one. A longbeard came in off to the left that I did not see. Eric saw it but when I called it turned around and skedaddled. The very vocal one stayed at the far end of the field wandering up and down and constantly gobbling. A young jake wandered by at about 9:00. We almost moved our setup but decided to tough it out for another hour. At the end of the hour when both our bodies were totally numb from sitting so long in the damp and sprinkles the loud gobbler decided to come out the field. Man it took him forever to come out. By the time he got to where we were my body was in full protest. Neck was killing me wrists ached and my tailbone was in full protest. The gobbler just stood out there at about 60 yds strutting, gobbling and spitting he finally worked himself to what I thought was under 40 yds by that time my body said either shoot now or move. Well I shot and off he went. The time was near 11:00 and that bird had almost constantly gobbled from at least 6:00 till then. Now all I have is an empty case and a memory of a great morning.
Remember the Ark was built by amateurs, the titanic by professionals.

Man, no one can say you two have had a boring spring season. At least you'll have aching knees & ankles at Elkatraz to offset your tailbone & wrist aches here in PA. :lol:
