jon and i were standing in the sun in front of his barn when he spotted a flock crossing the road 'bout 1/2 mile away. nothing pressing to do so we geared up and lit out after them.we took our time to allow the birds to cross the property line and get well inside the 85. you know turkeys, they always cover more ground ,more quickly than you expect. i kept glassing to the right side where i could see the ground fairly well on the slope of the ridge. now where do you suppose those rascals got to? we turned to move ahead and there they were, 75 yards and we are busted!we stood our ground and they all went straight away and down a slope out of sight. we half circled them to within 50 yards , with jon about 20 yrds in between me and where the birds SHOULD be. i tried several calls to try and get their interest and a responce. NOTHING! so we back off and make about a 400 yrd half circle to get on the other side of them and into the cedars. we set up in 3 different locations inside the cedars where i began to mix it up,KEE KEE,,,KEE KEE RUN, HEN YELPS softly, HEN YELPS EXCITED, GOBBLER YELPS, GOB AND HEN CLUCKS,,,,NOTHIN'! WE got up again and started sneakin' toward the open timber. we had gone about 70 or 80 yrds and began glassing the big holler. AND ONE CLUCKED! they were still in the cedars. jon and i were both standing . slate call in my hand and the Primos Diamond Cutter in my cheek,,i began purring softly. about 30 seconds and i see movement,,,,HERE THEY COME JON! i whispered. i admit i should have stopped calling as soon as i saw movement, but what can i say? i am ALIVE and tend to get excited. i purred on the slate then i'd purr on the cutter. they came on but started to swing around us. finally a bunch got into a fairly open lane and jon ROLLED HIS HEAD!!!!. WE DIDN'T STEP IT OFF , but i'd say it was around 35yrds. yep! jons first fall turkey . there must have been 10-12 ,,,all this years jakes. 16# ,, pimples for spurs ,,,AND TWIN 1 1/2 INCH BEARDS!!! JON was delighted and me , well i was and still am GIDDY AS A SCHOOL GIRL !
