Man this was a weird couple of days. i called in two birds for my cousin opening morning and he shot about a 15 pound jake with around a 5 inch beard. But the weird part was the other bird that came in was so far away when he started comin you could barely hear him. My cousin put only 3 pellets at the base of his neck but luckily it killed. We had worked the jake from 6:30 to 9:00. But now hes dead so that is great since it was his first bird. Then this morning i got to my spot after about a 2 mile walk and there was a rig parked right at the edge of the pine thicket were the birds roost. I m not trying to throw any geographical slurrs but we had arkansawyers trying to have free reighn all over the private property we were on. I had me a bit a cussing fit and i think they got the point. Then i went and got on a GOOD bird and worked him and belly crawled on him for about an hour and a half before i got ancy and tryed to make a move on him and spooked him at about 70 yards. it was weird though, he would doudle and triple gobble every time i hit that POOR VALLEY glass call but he3 would not budge. I watched him for at least an hour straight and he never moved more than 2 or 3 feet. But thats how it goes. Hopefully i can get us some points on the board in the morning. But it was a VERY succesful hunt in all. I helped my cousin get his first bird down so it was great even though i never fired a shot. Good luck every one im off to get ready for tommorows hunt.
