2009 Michigan Opener Turkey - Video - Double
 
Well the birds were really quite this morning. Only heard a couple gobbles and a few yelps. However in the next section we were hearing all sorts of gobbles so at 7:15 we determined that if nothing was happening by 8 we would ask the neighbor for permission to hunt the birds on his property. But 7:45 rolled around and the turkeys finally worked their way out into the field but were still a couple hundred yards off, about 8 hens and 2 toms. One lonely Tom came out about 150 yrds off and struted all by himself. I gave him a couple yelps to let him know we were there and he zero'd in on the two hen decoys. He began working his way over bringing all the other turkeys with him. He came into the decoys which were set at 10 and 15 yards. My brother was waiting for his strutting fan to cover his head before shouldering his shotgun. In the meantime the other turkeys were showing up with the other two toms that didn't like this lonely tom struting with the hen decoys. Those two toms chased that poor guy from his lover decoys and then proceeded to strut. My brother John yanked the gun up and shot one tom and the other tom hesitated just a split second, which gave my other brother time to shoulder his shotgun and shoot. Double Down!!
