Boonerchaser's 4/27/ 14 Trophy longbeard

Post  bowGal on Tue Apr 29, 2014 4:46 pm


 Larry had planned on hunting another location that morning, but  I talked  him it heading up  the  logging road with me , as  I heard  3 gobblers in that area  the  morning before, He set up in  the timber  near my  blind  right at the top of the road, I headed to  my blind on the  NE corner of this area, It was pretty windy morning,  and  low pressure had set in.
 I  have two birds fired up  on roost  with in a  100 yards of my blind, they are gobbling their heads of one roost . Radioed Larry  and told him to  get on the move and get  below me in the timber and edge your way down the hill, We have already learned this  bird's are roosting on the corner fence line of where our property  connects to our lease, And they usually pitch out  and head to  the lease hay field, or the timber below were my ground blind is,. Larry made his way down to   the lower creek area timber,, And of course  the birds pitched out in that  hay field,  We had first season tag's on the lease ground so  he could not  set up  there,  Sunday morning  you could not get a longbeard to talk, They all shut up  once they hit the  ground. It did not  matter what call you through out to them , The could care less.. So  he  put out his hen decoy, and just sat back, ( yes he actually took a nap) Little did he know while he was sleeping this bird was  heading his way  back to the  timber right to him.
, He was awaken  to the sound of  some sweet  drumming,  This bird was  quickly strutting in right to his , decoy Thank god there was a good  briar patch in between  him and this bird  which allowed him to  quickly get his gun up, Second's later, Big Ole long  Beard down,  He was  really a beautiful bird,  26 lb's / 11 in. beard, and very nice  1 1/8 spur's

Congrats to Larry on an awesome bird.  That's interesting on how you have some land you can hunt and some you can't on the same day.
