2nd bird the next afternoon.
25 lbs., 10-1/2" beard,1-1/8" spurs.
this farm was quite according to my buddies who hunted there opening day. they told me not to go because nothing was happening. i went anyway. 3:30, went to my set-up where the birds normally visit. set-up, called a couple of times with no response. 4:00, and here he comes...putting on a show but not being vocal. he strutted down towards me looking for that lonesome hen and then came out of strut. i hit him again, he is still coming. he got to about 10 yards and the hammer came down. 2 days and i'm done. i stayed another 3 days calling in birds for the farmer and his son. called in 6 more birds, farmer killed 1, missed one. the son missed 4 and then finally killed.
