Great morning, less gobbling and far fewer hens to have to deal with compared to yesterdays scouting mission. I set a couple blinds yesterday but opted to climb in the shooting house to have better visibility and see way more ground.
Birds had feet on the ground a good 25+ minutes earlier today and eyes on the first strutter of the morning at about 6:30. He was pretty shy and stayed inside the treeline and was popping in and out of 1/2 strut eyeing other turks... a bearded hen made he way out in the plot with two more strutters right on her tail. One of the two gave her a little early morning loving and she waddled into the dekes when tom tom climbed off her. The satellite bird broke loose and was about 6-7 yards from the blind when the other two rolled out in front of us. Jake took a couple of wing flaps and the two kept switching right & left... the whole time I'm steady on which ever is left and Pete's on the right. Finally they pump the brakes and separate enough to count it down and touch it off. 7:07 and they gone. Third opening morning daily double in a row to boot.
