Saturday morning I called in 3 longbeards from a spot I hunt every now and then by the river bluff. All the early gobbling was across the Cumberland River. About 630 I heard a gobble on my side of the river. I called and got gobbling from what I thought was 3 birds. They finally showed up walking and gobbling / drumming all the way. Well, I blew it one by shooting over the head of the lead longbeard. But having them all 3 gobbling while coming in was a sight to see and hear......

This morning I went to my honey hole. I wasn't disapointed. At this set up they either come up the hill in front of me, which is a field or come up the hill behind me through the woods. This longbeard gobbled in the woods behind me so I turned around and called to him. He responded each time and I could tell he was moving to me. About 10 minutes later he was gobbling just out of my sight and down the hill. I lightly called and scratched the leaves a bit and I heard him walking. In just a minute I saw his head poking up. He was to my left a bit and as he went behind a tree I moved the gun to be on him. When he stepped out from behind the tree I was on him.

Double beard with 9 inches and 6 1/2 inches, 3/4 inch spurs. Guessing him at abut 20 lbs.

Saw birds all along Hwy 25 driving home in fields. Lots of strutting going on.
