Default Gage scored on a good one last weekend

Last Sunday Gage got to properly break in the new farm.

First bird came in just after fly down but hung up 10 yards behind the blind just through some thick brush that he couldnt' get a shot. Had to settle for watching him strut and hearing him drum for over 10 minutes. Figured he didn't like the pretty boy so after he walked off I snuck out and took down the tom decoy. While doing this I spotted another 3 toms strutting over the hill. Got back in the blind and hit the call only to be answered by a mad hen. Her and I had a great conversation which I could tell she was getting mad. Figured awesome, she would bring those toms with her. Instead the 1st tom came back strutting and drumming 10 yards behind the blind again. Slowly the others came in and we had 4 behind the blind within 30 yards. Still no shot since they were through brush and right over a ridge. Then another tom appeared about 100 yards in front of us. He worked in perfectly putting on a great show strutting and gobbling. I was hoping to get the kill on my phones video but he started to move off to the side so me and Gage switched sides in the blind and he dropped him at 18 yards.

After he shot he informed me one of the other birds was within 5 yards of the opposite side of the blind. When we exited the blind the other 4 toms just slowly walked away.
