Another St. Helena Parish Tom. Sunday the 25th we step out the camp and hear this tom gobbler sounding off about 300 yards from the camp. I close the distance and start calling him and he answers with a crow everytime. we do this back and forth for several hours and he never moves. I start getting impatient and low crawl towards him and wait. Low crawl again and wait. I call more, finally i give in and start calling loud and agressive and he flies right on top of me and lands. This guy never leaves the roost until 930am wow. 25lb plus bird with 9 and 3/4 inch beard. Good bird.
