  • Took this tom on the last day of the turkey season in NC Saturday May 8, 2010. I patterned this bird over the previous 4 hunts. I set up a ground blind along a farm field road that the bird was using regularly. My friend and I got in the blind about 15 minutes before dawn. Around 6am the bird gobbled. I responded with a few yelps from my slate call. The tom responded immediately and I put the call in my bag. Told my friend I was going to take a nap while we waited for the bird to come in. We both dozed off for about an hour. When we woke up, the bird was with a hen about 20 yards from my tent. Mr. Tom was strutting for his live hen and my hen decoy that I placed 20 yards down the road away from the roosting trees. I filmed the tom for a minute displaying his stuff and then dropped him. Great way to end the 2010 turkey hunting season! Charles Bell Raleigh NC
