. Point of No Return
For once, I had a pleasant dilemma.
During a late-season hunt in southern Wisconsin, a turkey gobbled lustily and often at my calling from across a deep draw. Another bird had chimed in from the base of a small point about 200 yards away.
Figuring I couldn't kill them both, I had to choose. The bird across the draw was red hot, but he was also across that draw. Although I could cut some distance to him, the approach was fairly open. The other turkey wasn't nearly as hot and was 50 yards farther than the draw gobbler. However, he was on a long, steep point, where I could easily work him in -- provided he was in the mood. After all, he would likely walk in one direction -- toward me -- unless he inexplicably decided to drop off the steep tip or sides of the point.
It was mood against setup. The morning sun was getting hot, so I had to decide quickly. What would you have done?
