    Decided to give it another try this morning.I heard them gobbling as I was walking down to set up.So I said to myself ok,it's time to talk turkey and I called on my spursuader a few times.They kept gobbling but would never come over the ridge.I waited,then called again.He had moved on down the backside of the ridge.So I did some soft calling,he kept on moving down the backside of the ridge gobbling all the way down.After he stopped gobbling I was trying to move my seat a little so I would have better view,and a hen was coming down the dip,she purred and clucked within about 10foot of me and went to my decoys circled around and went back up the hill scratching and eating.After she left I could hear the Gobbler making his way back.I called to him and he moved up the backside gobbling all the way to the top.I was getting discouraged and was getting more comfortable in my seat,got the call and hit it hard a couple times, and looked around and he was standing near the top of the ridge.He kept eyeing the 2 decoys about halfway down.He fanned and looked at them,then dropped his fan.He stood up there pacing in circles putting on a show going in and out of strut over and over,every time he fanned his tail out I could hear it,Pffft,or maybe it was my heart beating I was hearing,lol,Ever so often I would purr and cluck real soft,and he would act like he was trying to figure out why they weren't falling in love .He would move about a foot further down toward the decoys about every 5 minutes.I would purr and cluck real soft on my call after another 5 minutes and he would move another foot.It seemed like it took half a day to ever get him in shooting range.But it was actually about 40 minutes once I seen him.I finally got him in my sight and boom.He went down and I was doing the turkey dance of joy,or maybe it was just my legs shaking,LOL. He was a really nice bird.At least I feel he is.He weighed 23lbs.Had a 11inch beard.And a 30 inch tail fan.Thank God for another sweeet day turkey hunting.The only call I have used is my spursuader,and I love it.If you don't already have one,look at the pics of the turkeys people have taken using the spursuader,then shoot Gobblintom a message and get you one.Its well worth it.

    I'm gonna take Huntman Sat morning - because of his broke arm he's gonna try with a shootin' stick. We'll see how that plays out.
    Congrats again on another nice bird. Well done.

    I Wish I Could hunt in my flip flops.Thought about just using camo face paint on my feet,lol.I tried breaking in new hunting boots this week hunting,and ended up with blisters so bad I had to wear my hikers hunting this morning.Couldn't wait til the pics were taken to put my flip flops back on.My feet were killing me.I would pay someone to wear those boots for about a month and break them in,LOL.Good luck to you and Huntman Saturday.

    Thanks Guys
    Seems like the birds are harder for people to call in but could be because they are older bigger birds and they are just smarter.I've noticed the ones a lot of people have been posting are big birds.

    NICE!!!
    Horn Hound couldn't find your email but we will get something figured out and I'm starting to wonder if It's the SPURSUADER or if Diane is Taking her shoes off after she gets set up and that's her edge in Killing 2 Great Gobblers the 1st week LOL...Just Kidding Hun, You did a AWESOME Job!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Do it Girl!
    I tell you i think it's something to these spursuaders lol cause GT came up and was just trying some of his calls he bought before he started making some of his own and they wouldn't even gobble until i called with the spursuader lol.You should have seen GT's face when i was scratching that thing he said wish we would have gotten a video of it would have been a perfect selling point.

    I have been trying to tell him they work.I have even proved it by showing him the turkey.I didn't even take any other call with me,thats how much confidence I had that they work.Maybe now he will start selling them,LOL.Glad you and GT had a great time.I have a feeling that's where he will be next year opening day.LOL.

    Diane, Don's right!! I couldn't believe it LOL I had $200 worth Of Custom Calls and couldn't get a response and God as our Witness, everytime Don would Yelp on the Spursuader They would Thunder LMBO...Yeah I was Shocked and the only reason I didn't have 1 of mine in my vest was I let a Guy talk me out of it right before I left Town but Yeah LOL...I was in shock and Don told me I can't eat no more Shrimp around Him LOL but that's a Story you need to sit down to hear LOL

    Spursuader
    So let me get this straight,I come out of the kitchen long enough to go hunting and kill two nice turkey in less than a week using only the spursuader and you had a problem believing it,LMBO.I hope you are still saving the one I asked you to for me,the one with the feather and turkey track.I will pay you when I see you.I can almost guarantee that everytime I use that spursuader when there's a gobbler in hearing distance I can make him gobble.I have done it and heard them gobble back 50+ times.

    turkey hunting
    You're right about it getting in your blood,lol.This is just my first year and I already love it as much as fishing,and I have fished for years.You are going to love the call Gobblintom is sending you.Sometimes something just a little different makes all difference.I had confidence that the call would work because I knew, if somebody had killed as many gobblers as GT has,they had to know what they were doing and what a call should sound like.Good Luck.

    Hey.....great picture of an awesome accomplishment.....rookie...lol! I know the feeling.

    Lately I've seen more turkey than deer. I saw at least 50 this past weekend, sometimes 20 or more together. If deer sightings don't pick up I think we all will have to shift to turkey season...lol!

    As I re-read my PBP I could just see the look on that ole Toms face as he stood up on that ridge fanning out for those cheap foam hens,lol.I remember it kept starting to drizzle rain and I kept remembering what you said about turkeys not liking to be in the woods but in the open when it was raining because they couldn't hear as well.Every time it would start to drizzle rain he would turn like he was leaving and I would hit the call real easy and he would turn back around. I know one thing for sure,as long as I live I will never forget my days turkey hunting.And the good thing is,I'm not done yet,lol.

    SPURSUADER - Call Used to persuade a Love-sick Gobbler into Range so you can cherish his SPURS forever more lol

    lol Dang Girl ...a 30 inch Fan!!! Your patience and determination is what got this Old Boss Gobbler killed!!! You had a great First season!!! I can't count the times that I screwed up by being impatient...You hunt and learn...You could see this Gobbler and 'Take his temperature' by watching him and seeing how hot he was..Even without the Cheap Decoys..I think you would have still killed this Gobbler...heck maybe even faster without them but you got him and that's all that matters!!!

    decoys
    These are the decoys I used to get both my gobblers,lol.Don't laugh too hard because I plan to use them again this year.I figure why mess with what worked.You've heard the song the girls all get prettier at closing time...well the decoys all get prettier at closing time too,lol.

    lol, Those are some winners!!! Them old Gobblers must have been drinking from a secluded Moonshine still lol...Look a little homely compared to my fancy High Dollar ones but hey...You can't argue with results huh?
    Reply
    lol
    I'd have to be drinking from a moonshine still to pay 100.00 for a decoy,knowing I was going to have to carry the heavy thing out of the woods along with my 20+ lb turkey,lol.Those decoys of yours do look good but we both know fancy don't kill turkey,patience does. On the plus side,your decoys are the most realistic ones I've ever seen.I just don't have that kind of money so I'll make the best of what I've got.
