The birds were very vocal on roost starting at 5:35 a.m. First fly down at 6:17. They gobbled for a good 30 minutes on the ground. I was a good 225 yds away from where they hit the ground. I'd let out some yelps on my Vector glass/slate call along with some soft purrs and they would answer back in unison with gobbles. Then they all just shut up entirely. I stayed quiet for about 15 minutes then began the yelps and purrs again. 3 jakes came on a string running, with this big boy right behind them, straight to my jake and hen decoys. I sent him a 3 1/2 #5 package at 45 yds. He dropped like a rock.







Thanks for look'n

That's a GREAT looking bird. I wish I was back home hunting turkeys right now. I grew up on the Johnson/Henry county line near Windsor. Congrats on a nice morning. -YB
