    Well went back to the same spot i went yesterday... got there before daylight, hooted and a tom rattled the limbs from about 60 yards away.. My father and I set up just inside the woods and I waited til it was a bit lighter and began to call soft and slow... Practically every time id call the tom would cut me me in the middle... I called vary sparingly being I knew he had hens and was more or less trying to coax the hens to come in and the tom(s) would hopefully follow suit.. After they flew off the roost all was silent.. got a bit worried then at 6:30 out across the field i see two big toms in full strut then behin them came the hens :roll2:

    After about 20 minute of watchin i began to cluck and purr at them and eventually brought the toms with in 40 yards and the hens came with in 10 and pecked at the deke and putted around..

    didnt wanna risk the hens spookin the toms so i told my father to pick one out and drop the hammer... he did at 7:05 am.. dropped a real respecable ~2~ year old tom... And he was the little of the two..The other tom ran off about 70 yards and stopped and i was going to call him back in and take him myself but work was calling and had to be there by 9 so i let him go..

    weighs approximately 21 pounds, 11" beard and 1" spurs.. my father is thrilled.. will have pics posted later, didnt have time as had to get to work..

    VECtor calls played a huge role in the kill this morning.. Parker, your calls are SWEEEET...

    I agree those calls sure do the job. I enjoy an assist as much as I do taking one myself.
