Started today where I left off saturday looking for a longbeard. Hit the locater at 5:30 and boom bird sounds off. Get within 100yds and set -up. He is receptive to calling and I then waited until fly-down and hit him one last time. In they come, all 5 of them jakes with one strutting and gobbling. Played with them for a while because I heard 2 others behind me and though I could draw them in for a look see. No luck with other birds but now I hear yelping, I have company from another hunter so i move in deeper and set-up again. Starting a calling sequence and a response. One more call and he is coming. Same 5 Jakes and this time I had the red dot on each one's head. The other hunter has also moved behind me and he is yelping the same tune they tried earlier. Now I'm watching 5 birds give this guy the cold shoulder and he is 30yds behind me. I leave when they and the birds move off.
I have never parked at a spot someone already is at for that reason. He was there first so I move on and i expect others to follow suit when i arrive early.They heard me calling at 2 different set-ups and tried to cut in on me. I should of just taken a jake and ended the season right there. Sorry for venting but this crap pisses me off.
