    I got to the woods abround 6:30 and I could hear them gobbling as I walked in.I thought i was probably arriving too late and they were going to see me coming in.But they were still across the ridge from me.So I set up my 2 decoys and positioned myself by a big tree that I had picked out a few weeks ago.I could hear a couple gobbling on the other side of the ridge from me.So I clucked a few times on my spursuader pot call that Gobblintom gave me and they gobbled back.So,remembering Gobblintoms tips,I kept quite.I waited a while and clucked again to see where they were.I heard what sounded like the worst box call ever coming down the ridge.I still kept quite and it kept getting closer.I eased around and looked and I saw a hen coming towards my decoys.She kept checking them out then disappeared over the ridge.I clucked again quiter this time.I heard another gobble,so I sat still.I eased my head around and saw a huge gobbler on a hen just thru the bushes.I waited him out but and he took off down the ridge just out of range thru the bushes.A minute later I saw another gobbler watching another hen as she headed toward my decoys.He kept easing down the ridge top until he was just in my site,then BOOM.I got him.Thankyou Gobblintom for your advice on not calling too much,and for the very effective turkey call.All this took place before 8:00.So it took me about an hour and a half to get my first turkey.I'm hooked for life now,lol. I forgot to mentioned that as soon as I sat down 5 deer came behind me and 2 started snorting and stomping their feet at me to the point that I thought they were going to alarm the turkey when they came over the ridge.But I stared them down and they finally went on,lol.
