Well this am went as good, well maybe even better than I could ever ask. Granted, I really did my homework on these birds (4 gobblers) and knew there strut/kill zone well. The hens have been taking them there for the past few weeks, but I noticed a week or so ago that the hens were all but gone and I thought the boys would really be love sick come opening day--they were!
I got in REAL early was sitting at 4:30 as I knew if they were there I would be close. Sat still till 5:30 when I heard was was clearly NOT a hen cluck--then Iremembered that gobblers will cluck this way when alone. So I waited a few more minutes and he clucked again and then another next to him did the same. Now it is 5:45 and I can see the decs well. At 5:50 the 2 of them fly down not 20 yards from the decs and the very second they hit the ground 2 more gobs sitting in the TREE NEXT TO ME[:o][:o] fly down and join up. Immediately they all break into spitting and drummping and the dominat gob takes charge walking right up to my jake and starts circling him.
I'm gonna post my time is about to run out and I will finish in a few minutes
