A husband and wife arrived yest. afternoon from Michigan. We went for a drive in the evening, spotted some birds and made a plan for this morning. We walked in about 200y, I set the Avian feeder, breeder, and jake decoys about 15 yards out. We listened to about 20 Toms and Jakes gobble in the predawn darkness, to the NW, N, NE, E, SE, and South of our position.
Three Toms flew down into our field along with a lone hen, then 5 hens and 9 Jakes joined them in the field. Two Jakes came to strut and dance with the dekes for a few minutes, then the lone hen started to move across, parallel to us and the 3 Toms started our way, with a small quiet call, they were running to us. Both birds were down just before sunrise!
Linda killed her first turkey ever and Tony took another, the 3rd Tom was missing several fan feathers so they let him go.
Its been a very succesful season!
