Southern IL Gobbler

Post  BuckRubIL on Tue Apr 21, 2015 8:16 pm

Had a fun hunt last Friday... this is usually the hunt Ash goes with me on but life and work got in the way this year and she couldn't make it.  Heard lots of gobbles on the roost and then heavy fog moved in for a few hours and I never saw or heard anything.  About 8:00 the fog lifted and it was none stop action for the next hour or two until I killed.  Saw 4 gobblers and a couple hens, the two strutters in the first pic wouldn't come in but as soon as they left the field two more came in behind me and they wanted to play.  I killed the one I could tell had bigger spurs and the other one beat up my decoys and dead bird after the shot.  Heading to SD next week after merriam's, hope they put on a show like this! cheers
