Good luck tomorrow gents. Hope we all put some birds on the ground.
I'll be out in the morning. Hope to put a rage in the cage. Will also be filming, good luck to all.It was a cold windy morning here. Never heard or saw a single bird. Hope tomorrow is better.
Congrats! Just had two Longbeards sneak within ten yards of the blind, they seen the decoys and decided not to come out into the field in front of us. If we'd had our guns instead of bows it would've been a double for sure.I connected with a 23lb bird this morning. 9.5" beard and 1" spurs. Pics later. Although it was cool (37 degrees) the wind had died down, which helped. There were 2 birds that gobbled a total of 3 times on the roost before flying down. I set up within 200 yards of them and worked them for half an hour before they came my way. I was set up in thick greenbriars and had them within 30 yards several times, but couldn't get a good shot to take. The lead bird was spitting and drumming the entire time. Finally, they worked around from my right side to my left and came to check things out. I dropped the lead bird at 25 steps and his buddy took off for parts unknown. Hope to get my parents on the other bird later today, or maybe catch up with him tomorrow. Good luck guys.
