Well i dont think i have to state the obvious. But down here on the coast the breeding is running a little late and its making for some slow hunts. All the toms ive been on are henned up bad and doing your typical gobble on the roost. They hit the ground and spend their day following hens and not saying to much else.i hunted saturday morning and got a nice bird. Saw him in a field around 7 the evening before and put him to bed. I knew he was alone so set up a ground blind and got in their around sunrise. He was the first of many gobbling on the roost, i got him fired up and then shut up. He came strutting in over 100yds and when he saw the jake decoy it was game over. He was dead at 7:07am. Weighed 18.2lbs 10 3/4in beard and 3/4in spurs.
