damn it, is it spring turkey already.

Nice gobbler. Did he call back much before you busted him? That always get my blood going when they start calling back and you can hear them getting closer and closer.

There were three of them gobbling at each others gobbles. It was funny to listen to. The subtle purrs and clucks are really what brings these things in once you have them responding to your yelps. I was setup just inside of a small cypress head listening to the show when one showed his red head, he came out but my setup didn't provide a clear shot and he backed out. A few more purrs and clucks and he made a U turn around a clump of palmettos and this time came all the way into 20 yards before I pulled the trigger. Never was in full strut though. For me there is nothing more exciting than hearing them gobble and calling them in, not even a nice buck. Although I have been known to get the shakes on deer, and screw it up (more often than not). [smilie=011.gif] I will say that playing harder to get has been more effective for me than full blown calling to every single gobble. I also ditched decoys, in favor of a more mobile setup. I had to crawl through the cypress head to setup.

Welcome, Jim. Congrats on your hog. Where's the photo, or are you still with the Federal Witness Program?

Joined a club in south GA about six weeks ago to do some hog hunting. Wanted to get myself and my son into it, as my dad stopped hunting after I was born and I never got to learn. Anyway, after a few weeks of preparation and setting up my stand/feeder, I finally got my first one Saturday night. This guy and four of his buddies walked directly under my stand shortly after I got in it.
