just to follow up on Game Eye's SET UP comments. I took out 2 guys last year that never really turkey hunted. It was the classic hunt!! I had scouted out 2 toms the night before and went and set up on a road bed at first light. Hit the owl call and BOOOOMMM they they were.
I knew i was between them and some hens, so i just called softly a few times and then a fly down cackle. They hit the ground strutting and came straight in to us. Got a double withing 12mins of legal shooting light.
Dropped those 2 off at the truck and went back to the back of the property. Found another LB strutting in a field with a few hens. he didnt seem to care for any hen calling so i broke out the TUBE call and he was hooked. He didnt like the thought of another LB near his ladies. He came in on a string and my buddy shot him 15mins after we set up.
the bad part of this awesome hunt was my buddies think this is how it is suppose to work all the time....boy were they in for a shock the rest of the season. Either way 3 birds down by 8am is by far the best hunt i have ever been on
