  • Opening Day Double

    Both birds were taken in Gates County on private land, by Jimmy and Billy Lane from Elizabeth City, NC. It was apx 1:30p.m. and we decided to relocate on the other side of the field. As we were walking along the edge of this rolling field, we looked down from a ridge and saw two Tom's heading right towards us. We barely had time to put the decoys down and sit. At first, they passed by our setup out of range. About 20 minutes later and some light calling they finally gave us our chance, and the Hevi-13 did not let us down! They had 10' beards and weighed 20 & 18lbs.

    Neat deal
    Great story! A double is something to be proud of, and to have taken two such fine birds on opening day really is icing on the cake.
