Ol Tom....

I've been after a particular bird the last 2 weeks when I have had time to hunt. I've seen him the last 3 hunts but have yet to crush his head!

Today I got in and setup before daylight and he gobbled a few times and was getting closer. he came over the ridge strutting and gobbling. He came to 50yds and I was moving my gun for the shot and a hen was 10 yds to my right and she saw me moving. They left in a hurry! I plan to let them rest a few days and try him again.

Sometimes, I hate turkeys.. These things are more frustrating than deer & fish..

These stupid turkeys sit there and gobble at you, just to let you know that you CAN"T kill them..

At least a deer doesn't sit there and holler at you just over the ridge and never show up..

I'm gonna try to get my boy on him this weekend. Have let him be for the last week. I did hear him gobbling Saturday morning but I didn't go near that side of the property.
