I had a great season with quite a few close encounters, no birds harvested. But, as my Dad often said "You can't put bites in a skillet", or in this case close encounters with turkeys in the roaster. Most of my efforts were to get the land owners 17 yr old son to connect with his first bird. Saturday should've been that day, a couple of trees and briar thicket have now earned that long beard his nickname "Lucky". Yesterday there weren't any gobbles to be heard. Our excitement was a hen that seemed to spend an eternity feeding by our lone decoy; eventually she wandered to within a 1 yard from our feet. After the hen left, we both agreed that our day was complete.
