Default #2 from Troup

Got down to Troup this morning, nothing going on and nothing talking at daylight. I went to 3 different spots and couldn't get any response, so around 1030, I was walking out to eat some lunch and saw this bird standing and strutting about 80-90 yards away in our gas line. I eased off the road I was on to the gas line side and sat down thinking that I will see if he is interested, if not, I was planning to slip on up the road and bushwhack his ass. I sat down just off the side and barely out of sight of the gobbler.

I started to make some soft clucks on a trumpet and he cut me off immediately, so I called back to him about 30 seconds later and he cut me off again and I could tell that he had already moved towards me. I shut up and within a couple minutes I could see him strutting towards me. This went on for several minutes. He would strut for bit and then move closer to me. He finally got to about 30 yards and threw up his head like something wasn't right and luckily the woods were open enough to the gas line for the shot.

4 hours of pure boredom and 10 minutes of pure excitement!

Good one Tim.

I'm hoping the gobblers roosting on the other side of the river will decide to come over and play soon.
