Last year I had spotted some birds struttin in a known strut zone, so after they left I went to that "zone" and placed my outhouse blind right beside the sign that said strut zone... I went home and checked the weather and the almanac to make sure the next day would be longer and decided that it would probably be a good day to be out there because it would be 1 minute longer than the day before.
I woke up and hooked up all my gizzmo's to my turkey vest, went out and fed my turkey dogs called up StevePA to see how he was coping with the 20 degree days of May and then headed out to the strut zone.
Once I got there I put out 4 hen da'coys and 4 gobbler da'coys(one can never have enuff) and I waited.....but before it got sunlight I heard thunder in the background and decided I better go home before I got wet.
I did the same thing the next mornin, once day light hit those birds gobbled 80% more than they do on a morning after it don't rain...anyway those birds came a runnin at my da'coys and I jumped up and shot a big ole tom without even callin to um....
I know alot of southern hunters practice this deadly art because its legal....To me its really not much of a challenge to stalk a turkey...
