Turkey Hunting Whether it's spring or fall doesn't matter to this bunch. Great tips on calling, bustin flocks, using blinds and more.

TomC, thank you very much. You like that pattern on his head... almost too close again, I'd imagine my wad bouncing off his head.

RIStrutStopper, Exactly, a great end to a great season indeed. But alas, I'm heading out tomorrow to listen for my friend on Saturday....wish us luck.

Maytom, good luck Maytom and thanks, this one didn't go for a ride in the truck. I walked out my front door for this tom.....and it was great for a change.

rybohunter, thank you sir, a chess match is a great way to sum this one up....I thought he was going to kick my butt but the jake decoy on the hens tail feathers must have been too much.....

Strut&Rut, I thought the beard a little thin as well. But alas, it'll look great in a flying mount for my log home. Last years bird is all but done, got a call to pick it up in a couple weeks. Half strut, gobblin off the limb if you recall last years trophy...pictures to follow.

Huntnma, thanks girl, how you makin out down south?

Bowtech9, thank you as well.

Mikey S., thanks Mike, I was glad to see the birds gobblin so much this late, in fact I've been on gobblin birds all season, it's been extraordinary.....got the spellin right this time...LOL

NewbHunter, thanks friend, I noticed some grammaticals in my story but what the hell, I was/am excited and the fingers don't match the brain sometimes. Great hunt, great season thanks, all.

Bobgobble2, thanks so much, and yes, birds like him leave ya lots of memories. Last year I thumped my bird opening morning and although it was a great hunt and a better bird, it was over so fast....this bird made me work my butt off....and I wouldn't have missed the experiences for the world....

ClassyHunter, Your right, like I said to Bob....it was all about the chase on this guy, so many close calls, highs and lows, disappointments and excitement.....this season ranks as one of my best and would have had I not connected on him too. He would have haunted me til next season....LOL

Congratulations Rob!

Neat story and great pics! Just goes to show that even when things don't always go right, sometimes "hard luck" stories do have a happy ending.

Antler Eater, thanks my friend. He was frusterating but at the same time, a great bird to hunt. I really thought he'd been older but I found out Saturday, a younger man was in there hunting as well. He was off his rocker with his calling ability and started calling way to loud, way to soon. I had a friend with me trying to get one of the other birds I had heard. We set up tight to a nice sounding gobbler when all of a sudden this guy starts in on his calls....the gobbler had answered me but once the other guy started, the bird walked away....never to be heard again that day.....might answer why my bird was shy......

Sounds like the seasaon I had in VT! It's a great feeling when you can vindicate yourself from a miss weather it's on a turkey, deer or a missed strike from a fish

Congratulation on hanging in there and closing out the season with an awesome gobbler bird
