Uncle Nicky breaks the ice for Team 2! :mrgreen:

Bird #1- nice GA gobbler, called him in from 300+ yards across an open field, using a gobbler decoy, hen call, and a gobble tube. 21#, 1" spurs, 10" beard.

Bird #2-missed a slam dunk shot at 30 yards, no picture to post. :roll: Snuck silently into my afternoon set-up, once again using the gobbler decoy. I was taking a snooze when I looked up & saw him. Not only missed once, but twice. :oops:



Bird #3-GA jake, shot him in the piney woods, called him in off of the roost gobbling. Was too easy to pass up, the devil made me do it!!

got my second tom yesterday
it was raining but i slipped on the rain gear and off i went
was soaked to the bone after a long walk in and when the rain stopped shortly after i got to my tree, water continued to drip off the big oak and run down my back. fortunately, it was in the low 60s, so it wasnt too bad
finally started to get light and i could see birds in the trees around me. as i continued to sit absolutely motionless, i could see a long beard swinging in the wind but when he tried to fan on the limb a gust would about knock him out of the tree.
not a gobble on the roost, and as it was creeping toward sunrise, it was still dark, hazy and gloomy. but then two birds pitched out and lit about 60 yards down the hill from me. the anticipation intensified as i thought, "must be hens, that big tom will fly down next."
but then i could make out beards, nice beards, so i gave a soft yelp on a Gooserbat Hillbilly, one of them responded with the day's first gobble and they both came up the hill right to me, and the one with the longer beard took a mud nap.
was a 3 year old that had sharp 1 1/16 spurs, 9.5 beard but only weighed 20 and scored 60.25
EDIT: sorry, guys, i should have posted my first bird here instead of starting a separate thread :roll:

Well, I broke the ice. It's certainly not the biggest I've taken but I just couldn't pass it up. Hit the woods about 0530hrs. and went to my morning spot, I has rained so much it was like a mud hole. Sat there until about 0800hrs and decided to move, hadn't heard a thing. Went to another spot I had scouted, sat and waited a few minutes and used my box call. Had a gobble about 200 yards away, while sitting and waiting had three deer come in and as I was watching them I noticed some movement out of the corner of my eye, it was a hen and I have no clue where she came in from? After she left I used a mouth call and yelped a couple times and the gobbles were a little closer. I noticed a hawk flying circle around were I was sitting so I figured I had a bird coming in. about ten minutes later a group of toms had skirted around me and were now 75 yards to my left and walking away. I grabbed the box call and yelped, got the attention of two of them and they stopped and looked my way. I started clucking and purring with the mouth call and was able to get this one to about 30 yards. Now to see if I can upgrade!!

Bird #3 this year. Pennsylvania public land gobbler that I killed yesterday, 19#, 3/4' spurs, 8" beard. Heading to Kansas & Nebraska Saturday to see if I can add a few more for Team 2!

Dang, wish I could figure out what I'm doing wrong with these pictures. Maybe someone has a suggestion?

congrats on another one, uncle nicky
on my computer, you can open the pic in the photo program and do a "resize image" or you can email the photos to yourself and the mail program will give you an option to make the pic smaller
but on your post, all a guy has to do is click on the photo to see it full size
good luck on your upcoming hunts

Well I'm not happy to report I let the team down...but it really wasn't my fault!

The Toms just weren't coming on my Property. Never heard a Gobble til the day after my Season!

Really Landowners should get to hunt the whole Season... I had a choice 2 week Season late April or an almost Month long Season May 6th thru 30th...

Next year I'm taking the Month Long one this 2 week one sucks if it Rains and is Windy the whole 2 weeks like this year...

Next

Return to Team 2
