Postby sprigs4days » Mon Apr 23, 2012 10:14 am

after 3 straight weekends of hunting with no luck, I finally got this tom to strut within 15 yards of me. thought my heartbeat was gonna scare him off it was pounding so hard. gave a couple clucks he raised his head to gobble and bang. great sunday morning hunt.
