after not hearing any gobbles on a cold sunday morning and a north wind,i decided to try another bird i had not had any luck getting him to come to the property i was hunting.i setup in one of my old favorite spots and hit my call and got a gobble behind me right away across the fence.i got out my slate a hit another note and he gobbled again but this time starting up the fence towards another spot i use in cedars along that same fence 300 yards away in front of his travel.with no leaves on trees,keeping safe distance keeps me out of sight.i set up huffing and puffing from a fast walk and chose to use 4 different calls.he had three hens with him and kept closing the distance while i listened to the hens talking in front of him.i knew he would pop up about 20 yards away in the edge of the pasture before i could see him.he appeared looking for all those hens he THOUGHT he heard and the sight was on his head and it was crushed.he was a good three year old with 9.5" beard.about 20 # and 1" spurs. i haven't ever felt better about taking a tom than this one. :)
