Conclusion: The Siren Song
"To heck with this," Egge said. With that, we left the pasture, crossed a creek and slipped 200 yards through a ditch, stopping at the base of a small bluff. I yelped on a box call, and the gobbler cut me off.
"He's in a pasture up on top," Egge said.
We climbed up the hill, set up and enjoyed 15 minutes of heart-stopping gobbling. With rain still pouring down, I ended the hunt with a 10-yard shot.
"Man, I'll take that any day over waiting in a pasture," I said.
"Yep. Of course, we don't know what happened after we left."
