    'Double Thunder'
    At day break, I heard only one lone gobbler and decided to make a break. Once I set up and started working him @ 07:00, I realized there was a second Gobbler. As the romance continued, over a period of 2 hrs. and 21 minutes, two more joined in. With four long beards across the creek which would lock up just before crossing, gave a continous 'Thunder' in the bottom that I still hear today! Finally, after some aggressive calling all four long beards flew across the creek and ran towards me. I stopped them with a cut @ 20 yds and was able to harvest two of them. One being 19.3 lbs, 9 3/4' beard, 1 1/8' spurs and the other 17.6 lbs, 10 1/2' beard, and 1' spurs.

    You sure know your terrain and this is one of the most important tools in turkey hunting.

    All I can say is ... NICE

    You are right, woodsmanship is 2/3 in my book.

    Thanks

    Only once have I had a gobbler fly across a creek to come on over. If they are willing to do that - then you pretty much WIN !!

    Got a question. I'm curious, how many shots rang out?

    And I'm sure you can still hear that thunder down in the bottom, and maybe in some of your dreams too.

    yea Jeff, and to see 4 birds fly across the creek was really exciting! Only two shots rang out, just wish I had Blake with me!

    Two shots
    OK, two birds on two shots - that sounds right.

    Good Shooting!
