At 8am my buddy sends me a text message "BIRD DOWN". I had only heard one gobble and seen zero birds.

8:15am I spot a hen, then another and another, eight total. One has an 8in beard.

I try to call the whole flock in, they love that Perfection Screamin Demon! Here they come. Cool! Maybe I'll shoot that bearded hen and stuff her for a decoy. As soon as that thought entered my head two long beards come running out of nowhere and mob my jake decoy. I blast one of them. Down he goes. Distance 5yds! Needless to say the Gobblerguns Choke patterned well!

The flock scatters and they start trying to reassemble. I stay put and act like one of the lost flock. It takes almost an hour but they start showing up one and two at a time. Where's that other gobbler? I suddenly hear one sprinting from behind and instantly he's on the jake decoy again! Five yard range again! This time I disintegrate his head! He ends up laying four feet from his bully friend.

From left to right: 18lbs, 9" Beard, 3/4" spurs; 17lbs, 11" Beard, 7/8" spurs; 19lbs, 9.5" Beard, 1" spurs (no head)

Two very thankful happy hunters!

WAY TO GO LEO. Yea I just yelled. It is a good day when I hear you can get out but to get a bird is a great day and to get two is fantastic. Sure glad your sights didn't fall off this year.

Congrats! First ones I have seen down this year.

Our season will not open for another month, 4/19/10. I have been making plans to bowhunt the flock this year.

Congrats Leo, and see you were worried. I knew you'd do ok. Here we can't kill two the same day unless it's late in the season and you haven't harvested one yet. Our season doesn't start till mid April.
