The hunting gods were with us this morning and we found a suicidal tom. He gobbled at everything and was dead 10 minutes from when I made my first yelps. I called him in for my brother. It was like shooting fish in a barrel and by far the easiest bird that we have ever killed. He flew down and came in on a rope. He had a 10 1/4" beard and 3/4" spurs. We forgot to weigh him, but he would have probably gone about 17-18lbs. He was only my brothers 2nd bird so I was pumped that I got to call it in for him. Good luck to the rest of you when your seasons roll around. :thumbsup:

Not just opening day, but the third day as well. I killed a good bird this morning. The weather was so bad yesterday that I didn't even go, and the wind was so bad this morning I was wishing that I had stayed in bed. I had to get pops out of bed, because he thought I was crazy to hunt in all that wind. After 30 minutes of hearing nothing but wind, he decided to hang it up and get ready for work. I went to check out one more spot on my way home and didn't here squat, but as I left to take the long way home I ran a good bird out of the road that borders our property. I slammed it in reverse and flew back to where he couldn't see the truck, then got out and hight tailed to as close as I dared to where he had been in the road. I started calling really loud due to the heavy winds, but to no avail. After about 10 minutes I heard what I thought was a gobble. A series of yelps later, I knew that it was a gobble. I finally saw him about 60 yds out strutting and gobbling. That's right I could see him gobbling, but could barely here him. After a while he walked behind a big briar patch and I thought the game was up. After about 5 minutes I called and he immediately answered (new hope). I shut up and he finally came waltzing in from my left. When he broke strut at 28 yds, I dusted him. After it was all said and done he weighed 19 1/2lbs, sported 2 beards 8 and 10 1/2", and spurs 1 and 1 1/4". Needless to say I was tickled pink. :salude:

We got screwed again today. We were set up with birds on the roost like 75yds. away. They were going to fly down perfect and join our decoys. They were on the other side of the fence but were going to fly to our property. Then Hunter Dan has to come by on his 4-wheeler running late and scares them the oppostie direction. Later in the morning I woke up to see a tom about 15 yds. away in our decoys running away. Apparently when I woke up I did something that he saw and didn't like. :oops: Finally around noon I called three birds into the thicket below us. They just wouldn't come on up to us. So I went below them and dad went above them to push a drive towards me. So I'm down below and I hear the commotion of them flying then they come out of the woods about 30 yds. away.
I dropped this bad boy with one shot from my Beretta 20ga.
