I took this gobbler at about 7 am this morning. He flew down about 100 yds from my set up where I had my dekes which were 3 hens and a struttin tom decoy. It was almost like they were afraid of the gobbler decoy because they wouldnt come any closer than 70 yds. I had patterned my gun this spring all the way out to 60 yds so I knew where to hold the bead. I clucked, he stuck his head up and I shot. Two pellets hit him right in the side of the head and he flopped for about 5 minutes before he expired. I stepped it off and I was amazed that it was 70 steps!! Jellyhead and Win supreme #5 plus my trusty old 835 more than made me proud. I am taking a 10 year old boy this afternoon. I hope he can get the boss that we keep seeing! He weighed 20 lbs and had a 10 in beard and 1 in spurs. For sure not the biggest but by far the longest shot I have ever made.

Unfortunatly, the boss didnt work for us today. We have hunted that area hard now for a week and a half. I think its time to back out for a week or two. One thin I did notice today, In my area of east tn, it seems as though they are starting to break up earlier now. Hens are going to nest earlier leaving the toms aweful lonely. They still arent runnin to the calls though. Weird!
