What made today even more special was I introduced my 20 yr old nephew to turkey huntingThey blew the woods down in Union county SC this morning for the opener!!
setup close on 4 gobblers but they had hens with them. Worked them for hours... bet they gobbled 75-100x .
stayed with 1 boss gobbler and his hen for along ways... he would answer etc but of course we were on his back trail.
finally got sort of in his way around 10:30 am BUT not quite close enough... watched him strut by at 75-80 yards with a hen . Even gobbled just to tease me.
I think I will need counseling for the nightmares I will have of that one for months
Ps It was a fun morning, and great day to play chess even if I did lose today to ole Tom
he is *diseased” (I mean hooked) now
