That bird came inside of 100 yards, hung up for an hour and left unscathed. We went to another spot, called up another and Mason fires a rushed warning shot. He had come in silent and it got “western “ quick. No mess... back at it in the morning before heading back home for Mother’s Day.
I snapped this pic seconds before the firing started.

We went after the bird we called up at 4 yesterday. He and a bunch of others were roosted right where we called him up. Unfortunately, the only other person hunting the Wayne today was also there. So we bailed, found a few mushrooms coming off the hill. We are set up on a new ridge now but nothing is gobbling yet. Gonna quit about 10.

We sure did, Greg! I am whipped. No turkeys were harmed in the making of the good times.
Here is a pic of me impatiently waiting on my guide to get his crap together. Always waiting. This was our last set up. We walked about 50 yards from this spot and watched a turkey fly off a limb. No idea why that bird was still in the tree so late in the day. Crazy dang birds. If you try to apply logic when hunting these things you’ll simply go mad.

Agreed! Since we moved into our home I have been able to watch undisturbed turkeys throughout the day many times. There is no rhyme or reason to what they do. They have no plan. Everything is Willy nilly. A butterfly can completely change their course. Their brain is the size of a peanut. They can’t reason or think. Just react. It is still a lot of fun to wreck their heads though.

A lone hen came by at five yards or so. Birds are still gobbling on the neighbors property. They roost and fool around over there most days before coming through our location.
