I couldn't get out on Iowa's opening day and I had committed to guiding a friend on day two. He missed...several times. Ughh!
Anyway, day three was all mine and I was able to make the best of it. I hooked up with this gobbler an hour after sunrise. he pulled in a whole flock with him, but I did not take much time to watch him. After seeing those misses the day before, I was in no mood to play around. He was in half strut at 8 yds. when I let him have it.
