Smashed a Beast ...

Postby Pouledeau » Tue Apr 01, 2014 9:35 am

5 yards, spitting, strutting and drumming ... came in so hard and fast I didn't even have my gun up before he was on me. Had to let him leave and then worked him back in to 12 yards purring and chirping after he retreated.

Wet and windy. Sort of amazed he did it ... !

32 lbs., just a toad ...

I like rain, hate wind for turkeys.

Rain yes, the combo is what gets me. The OP made good of a sucky day though.

The day after a good rain is my go to time. Especially since the morels over here are so dang close to coming out the anticipation is killing me.

Go time for sure. I almost pray for thunderstorms and high winds before I go provided they clear quickly with a good stable high pressure system behind them. Cool and still and sunny and warming to 78+ degrees. Dead gobblers.
