Almost made it thru the season

Last day of the season in area A , wanted to be in the woods before sunrise. Overslept and did not get there until 7 AM. Called and no

response anywhere. Decided to set up a decoy on a lane. Sat there about 20 minutes looked to the right about a hundred yards away, seen him slowly makings his way. No gobbling no sounds of any kind. It took him about 15 minutes to get within shooting range. 1st one in four years. 91/2 inch beard 1' spurs 17.5 pounds. Each of the previous years something went wrong, missed shots, movement....falling asleep and waking up to see a gobbler walking in front of me. { I know you have to be awake hunting}.

I was about to give up turkey hunting. This one kept me in the game.
Congrats, That's hard hunting when they do not make a sound.
