Got invited to go back to GA where I deer hunted this fall, and turkey hunt for the last couple of days. I have never hunted turkeys in GA and never would have dreamed they would have been gobbling and henned up in mid-may, but sure enough it was full bore all the way until the season closed.

Wed was the first morning, and a bird would have died but my shooter moved at the worst possible time and spooked the bird. Easiest turkey I have called to in several years, he literally ran to my calling, and should kiss the limb every night he roosts from here and thank my shooter for moving and saving his life. Worked 2 other birds that morning, both with hens and both led us on a wild goose chase led by their harems.

Thurs windy and rainy birds didn't gobble at all until 9, then it was the henned up routine repeat.

Friday, another rookie mistake by my shooter and another spooked bird. He had to head home around midday, and left me the keys to the fortress since I had family business in ATL on Saturday. Well after lunch I slipped in the woods around 1:15 I toasted this 3 year old bird that came in strutting with 3 other LB's, and had been preceeded by 5 gobbling/strutting jakes, and had another bird closing from behind me before I shot this one.

Great season, great trip, and good way to close her out.
