Got my second gobbler ever one week to the day from my first! He came in with two jakes from almost 300 yards right through the middle of a field, stopping to strut about ten times along the way. When he finally got to my decoys I pulled the trigger and nothing happened! I racked another shell and still nothing. I couldn't believe he was so occupied with my decoys that he didn't even notice me fumbling around with my gun. Finally I chambered my last shot and thankfully it went boom. This one went 19.48lbs and was a good bit smaller than the tom I shot last week. 10.5' beard. Kind of sad my season ended so quickly but I've got my first born due any day now so it feels good to have that under my belt for sure!
