Longbeard opening weekend


Recommended Posts

Couldnt close the deal on opening morning on saturday, although i heard plenty of gobbling and saw plenty of birds including 1 real nice tom (that strutted for over 3 hours, 100 yards away). This morning the whole flock was in the woods roosted and at daylight 6 hens (including 1 bearded hen), 3 jakes, and 2 mature toms flew off the roost and into my field less than 80 yards away. After a couple hours of watching birds, one of the jakes came over to strut for my 2 hen decoys. Well that got the attention of one of the big toms, and in the process of scaring off the jake, he ended up well within gun range. 1" spurs and 9 1/2" beard. Great day and certainly one of the craziest mornings i have ever spent in the turkey woods, that ended in success.
