we got a double as well, 8", 1"spurs and 7.5", 7/8" spurs

we spotted 4 jakes and 2 hens as we were driving up the road to camp (3 of us), so the day started out great. we couldn't get those jakes away from the hen, as the 1 person who jumped out, didn't have a decoy yet. the other 2 of us went down to join him and couldn't get them to come down off an opposite hill either. so we actully crawed up closer underneath them, placed a decoy and started. 1 tom (maybe another one) was really interested and came probably 75yds, but stopped there and it couldn't see the decoy yet...we shifted and it probably heard us....so we went back to camp and 2 of us went to the upper part of the property to look for different birds. We called every 150' or so, for a while. then on the bad side of the hill, above our pond, we heard one gobble around the corner, so we setup, then shifted again (cuz we're stupid), called about 5 times in 20min and the very last call, they gobbled. this time behind us, but just a bit down the hill. So we shifted quickly , callled once more, here they come. another 5min, once more lightly, i can hear them coming, they spot the decoy and walk right in in full strut. we had talked earlier if we see two, if either of us click our safety off, to count 1-2-3-shoot. so i pick the one on my side, close to me, click off, 1-2-3-blam. mine drops the other one runs towards my friend, i swing on it and he drops it.

we'll get my other buddy one, i guess that one (those 4 actually) walked clear around a mountain onto the neighbors property.
