Yup, got it in Lumpkin county at my hunting club.

9" beard, 1 1/4" sprus.

The story starts friday evening. After work I headed to camp and got all set up and was sitting on my tailgate when I heard a bird gobble about 300yrds away. I quickly grabbed my shotgun and ran on over there, still in my street clothes.

Got set up and made a few calls that he responded to, so I was thinking " All Right! Start this weekend off right here!"

But next time he gobbled he was a bit further away. I followed along not calling or anything until I heard him fly up. Roosted.

Woke up early the next morning and got set up on him ~100 yrds away. Sure enough, he lights it up from the roost. I just gave him a soft tree call to let him know I was there and he gobbled at me. So i put the call down and waited....and waited.... Next time I hear him gobble and he had gone the other way. Every time he gobbled, he'd be a little further off. I was able to make out what direction he was headed, so I got in the truck and drove closer. Got set up on a clearing near where I thought he was heading and called. He responded with a gobble from, I'm guessing, about 300 yrds away. Across a road and on another club. So I figured that was it. No way I'd be able to call him from that far and have him cross a road to get to me.

Just as I was about to give it up I hear a bunch of hens start carrying on in the bottom behind me. So, I'm thinking, I might not be able to call him in, but maybe they can. So I just sat there and waited. Sure enough, about 10 minutes later I see a blue head pop up from the tall weeds. Then I see two more with him.

The lead one steps out, I see he's not a jake and shoot him. His two friends just stopped and stared at me. So I pumped another round in the ole' mossberg 500 and they knew what was up and were gone before I could get the gun on either of them.

So it's been 10 years since I joined Woody's (Miss Yah Brother!)...

Dana Young got me hooked on Bear Hunting (Thank you Brother)...

You Bear Hunting Outlaws need to make at least a weekend this season, if nothing other than to get a mountain Tick or spit and whittle a while.

Black Powder opening weekend.

Joe and I (news to Joe) will be putting a Pig in the ground on Saturday...

Y'all come for the celebration...

Ron

I guess it's good that I bring in my bird feeders now. Just walked George the 12yr old Shih Tzu around the house and found some bear poop on the edge of the woods between the houses. Dave

I saw my first bear of the yr. yesterday while hiking in to fish a small native stream off 180. Looked to be around 100 to 150 lbs. It got gone in a hurry. All kinds of territory markers in there.
