Hunted with my father inlaw this morning. Heard more gobbling today than any other day, heard probabaly 10 to 12 different birds. Had two close calls but could seal the deal. Birds were very responsive to calling.
Got a decent 2 year bird today at 730. They were really fired up with hearing at least 6 birds. Last weekend just heard 2 jakes in the same spot.
One gobbled put in the field at 630 and saw him but he was in a hurry and went over the hill strutting. Came back a little way later with 2 friends.
They were moving quick again so shot wasn’t the best being behind me and ended up hitting the upper breast and neck and he went down hard at 45-50 yards. Pretty impressed with the Longbeard Xr in #4’s.
