of the Hunt
My bird (on the left) was one that we
spotted about 200 yards deep back in
the corner of a corn field. He was about
30 yards from a fenceline that led to
another field. This fenceline had about
a 5 1/2 foot levy. We got out of the
truck and snuck all the way down to
the corner of the field behind the levy.
Once we got to the corner I crawled
up the levy and popped my head over
the top. There he was with a head that
was white as snow. I pulled up, shot,
and down he went.
The second bird (on the right) was a
gobbler we sighted strutting down in
a field by a creek bottom. We snuck
down the creek and watched him for an
hour while he showed his stuff to the
five hens he was with. He was making
his way to the edge because it was about
fly up time. Steve gave a little cluck
with his mouth call and the gobbler
brought his head up just enough to put
him down for the count.
Great spring turkey hunt!!
