Default The rest of the story

I posted yesterday "What should I have done differently", and I appreciate your feedback. I will try that bird again next weekend or sooner if i can get away.

However, i wanted to tell you one other piece of the story that amazes me. I have friends i didn't know were friends when Osceola turkey hunting arrives in Florida. I usually have more friends than weekends. This weekend, a atty friend of mine wanted to go. Being a good friend, i made a spot for him. Long story short, it can be hard taking a non-hunter as I forget how many of the little things people like this don't know and understand. B/c of this, I told him to stay completely still in the blind and suggested he consider laying down to ensure no movement as the morning could drag on. To my surprise, we had the big bird gobbling early from the tree and on the ground as he headed my way. To my surprise, within 15 min of sitting in the blind, the guy was sound asleep. He woke up a couple of times when i was hitting the call and the bird was gobbling, but went right back to sleep. I was completely amazed. My heart was pounding it was such an exciting morning, full of action on start to finish, and he sleeps through it all. The good news is, he didn't move, but I felt bad that i brought him instead of someone who could have really appreciated the experience. It was his first turkey hunt, but also his last. I'm not mad, but would rather bring someone who can appreicate what the sport is all about. I'll save a spot for this guy when the season ends and take him for a hog hunt or something.

I guess others who dont hunt turkeys dont have a clue as to whats going on. Your right its too bad he slept or he may have enjoyed the hunt. It might even have turned him into a turkey hunter.

Yea, I second that, give me a call, I WILL NOT fall asleep in the blind hehe ESPECIALLy if there is a bird on the way in.

I'm laughing at yoru story cause I just can't imagine it!

Does this guy hunt at all? Must not, if you are hunter and a gobbling bid doesn't get yoru blood bumping (especially if its the first time) then I just don't know.......

Happy Hunting!
