I know this is not the biggest bird but after the season I have had; I'll take what I can get. It was also one of my favorite hunts ever. Before daylight I didn't hear a thing. At daybreak I saw a hen enter the field. Shortly after 5 jakes came out and started chaseing her around. They would not come into my calls. Maybe it was the real thing in front of them that prevented my calls from working. The hen bagan to yelp and lead them away. So I mocked her. She was not happy! She came in and started pecking my decoy. By calling her in the boys followed and I got one. It was the first time I ever called a hen in and first turkey tag I got to use.
