Best morning yet this season.... Took my son out Saturday for the youth turkey hunt... Tough morning.. no gobbling... Headed for the truck at 11:30... Struck a bird next to the truck at 11:45, called him in and my son shot at 11:55 and missed!!! Nice long beard... but he is fine.. son's ego is bruised though... LOL... So I get him back out this morning before school.... Make a huge swing around this mountain in the dark and come in from behind these roosted birds... Set up on the ridge above them... They start hammering on the roost... 5:30 I hit them with a Fly down and the game is on!!! 45 minutes later the gobbler go quiet... Cut to them on the slate and nothing.... I'm thinking either bumped or coming... sure enough a minute later.. Here comes 2 long beards, 4 jakes and 2 hens... They hang up at this downed tree 35 yards out... They strut, spit and drum for 5 minutes there... I look over at my son.. gun up.. on them.. no shot... The hens decide they have had enough and work across the ridge leaving us... When they were gone my son comes over and goes "My mind went blank!".. LOL.. "That was awesome!!"... He just didn't feel comfortable with the shot and after Saturday's miss I understood.. Told him we now can work them again so no loss... Great morning... tons of gobbling... and having them that close for that long was priceless!!! :shade: I love calling in birds for others!!! Especially my son!!!
