Me and this turkey have played cat and mouse with each other. He was always a step ahead of me. Did not matter what time I went he would already be out there. I took the long approach this time and slowly and quietly walked through the woods for probably 250 yards before coming out about where I had last seen him. It was about 1:00 p.m. when I got there. It took me about 25-30 min to reach the small field I was hoping he would work his way to. Well, he and his ladies where there. I crawled on my belly to about 30 yards. Got up one my knees and clucked a couple times and waited for that red head to pop up. As soon as it did I made the shot and dropped him. He weighed 19.4 lbs, had a 10.25' beard, and had 1 1/4' Spurs. My 2010 turkey season is complete!
