After him not wanting to play this morning....I drove off on him, ate, and took a nap.
When I returned, I was determined not to play fair. Avian X feeder hen, funky chicken, and a fan. Only called once. He showed up an hour later. No.2 down.
Scouted this bird yesterday and had great idea he'd still be there this morning. My buddy Chad , who can't hunt but just a few times this season due to his sons baseball team called me last night and said he could go this morning. I told Chad we'd go after this bird and he'd be the shooter. I wanted him to get him and bird and I have plenty of time to hunt. We were rushed with the weather but the big boy strutted right to us off the limb. He was a stud too. 24lbs, 10 1/2 inch beard and 1 3/8ths spurs. Fun hunt with a good friend.
