Headed to farm and arrived late Thursday, decided to watch my son's high school volleyball game rather than roost the birds. Friday morning was slow on the roost a few birds and very few gobbles to try and piontpoint where they were FAR away. about 645 I hear one kinda close, ease over and set up call and he he farther away and doesn't respond, I give it 15 minutes and up and moving to an area we haven't touched and generally has birds. midway to that spot I blind call and pretty sure I heard a gobble.....as I am easing up 150 yards GOBBLE, I call softly as there is still a ridge between us and I can get around on him on the logging road...he starts going crazy and I ease up to 100 or so and is straight away on the other side of a rise in the woods. purr on the slate twice and he continues to go beserk......gobbling the rest of the way in I am able to ease about the tree and position the gun and begin focusing on getting down on the barrel, spy him about 40 out and let him walk up inside 20 and bang, flop, nice 1.25 spurs and solid 10,5 beard. 30 minutes from his faint gobble and easily 30 gobbles later we are done. Glad it worked that quickly as the winds began to rip 30 minutes later.
