The morning started with a bad over cast. We stayed in our confidence spot and called in three hens. No gobbling at all. Picked up to see if we could find a hot bird . A hour later we finally found some birds that were more than willing. By cutting and running.. We sat down in a decent area that looked like a good strut zone. We had two swinging beard bird come running in! I told my son to take his time. He had a bead on the bird on the left which had the bigger spurs for at least 3-5 minutes. I didn't ever thank they were ever gonna come out of strut. I'd yelp- they would gobble, I cutting and they would gobble, I'd cluck they would gobble.. After giving 1 cluck that was real sharp they picked there heads up. I say----- shoot son!!!!!!!!he pulls the trigger and I heard---- CLICK!!! Lol,,, he forgot to put one in the chamber!!! He tried to pump a shell in and the birds took off. He got his gun up and I had stopped them at 45 yards but they wouldn't stick around. He could had shot but I'm very proud of him for holding off. He said ever time he got a chance , both birds had there heads lined up in the bead. We are going back after them tomorrow!!!! Good huntin
