South of Orlando. Buddy did the guiding, and have no idea exactly where we were. I shot one at 8am Friday, and the next one Saturday at 7:15am on a flydown from Roost, after he got tired of Gobbling for over an hour. He landed, ran in to kick our Jakes butt, and died. First one was actually a second setup that morning after we called 2 Jakes in on our intial setup. Moved 300 yards, set out our Jake/Hen combo, sat, started calling, and had 3 birds brake out of the woods and sprint towards our dekes. First was a Tom, and I had my first Osceola. That bird died less than 10 minutes after we sat down. We were a bit surprised at how fast that ended.
