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.
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.
