20 Seconds after fly down on opening day!

Post  Mountainman Vic on Sat Apr 27, 2013 8:10 am

And the lights went out for this old boy cheers I spent about 1 1/2 hours on my belly last night laying in some brush watching this bird and his hens along with 3 jakes and a 2 yr old as they fed until after sunset and then watched as they left the plot and knew right where every one of them should be in the morning. I left the house at 3:20 this morning and was sitting under the birds by 4:30. After I got set up I heard the unmistakable PHFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFT!!!!!MMMMMMMMMMMMMMM Very Happy The call of a Whipper Will got him gobbling on the roost and I sat and watched him for 20 minutes struting in the tree. He flew right to me hit the ground 30 yards away just over the ridge. As soon as he came up where I was sure it was him......... BAM!!!!! Game Over. Sucks to be the guy who was sitting out on the food plot giving the non-stop calling from the first gooble......

Nice Bird Vic!!! You don't like to mess around anymore do you? The funny thing is, the guy sitting on the food plot is probably complaining to his buddies right now how some slob hunter snuck in on him and stole his bird, even though we know that isn't true.

John, The fact that this guy parked where I was parked, came in where I did, walked past my bike,(which was place out in the middle of the plot to visibly show that I was in that spot and then I shined my light at him when he walked in on me. Made me free of sympathy for him.

And yeah Barb, Think I'm with Harry on this one.

Congrats again Vic! Are you going to let your second bird touch down with both legs ? Lol. Sure would be nice to see those pics you took up at the dam! If only you would have had an SD card ! Lol.

I know Vic and I don't have any sympathy for him either, you earned that bird fair and square! Job well done!! I'm kind of surprised that bird # 2 hasn't hit the ground for you yet!
