This turkey hunt was sponsored by @brock ratcliff. All the fun and none of the mess! I'll upload the video and full story later, but here's the gist of it!

I'm rarely able to roost birds, but I have enough experience on our farm to know where to start most hunts. This morning started like most: owl hoots from the ridge before dropping down to the main intersection of the hollers. Well, we're standing there listening and I'm telling a story about a hunt when a bird hammered off right above our heads in that spot and it wasn't 5 seconds later, a good bird sounded off 40 yards up the hillside from us right on cue! We played cat and mouse with him and his buddy for 2 hours before we bailed. Was a fun morning. We were watching him limb walk when I took this video.

Well done, Seth!

We just left AEP 😬 Might as well have been opening day of gun season. Place was packed, mostly Ohio plates with at least 4 Yoder toters in the mix. Between the shrooms, fish, and thunder chickens, it's the place to be apparently.
I thought yoders didn’t messed with turkeys, they had to be there for the fish and shrooms
