Figured I should start a thread for this years birds. Should be some birds down this morning. Hopefully I'll add to it Friday and Saturday.

Tough day for me. Had a lone bird in the roost but he would not fly down. Almost 645 finally we moved on him and he flew when he seen us i think. Maybe he seen us set up not sure. Otherwise not a single reaponse to any calls

First bird I shock gobbled at about 5:45 looked around for a good place to set up since I knew it was going to be a while before he flew down. Sat for about 30-40 minutes before I called him. He gobbled again in the roost 20 yards away  :chuckle: he probably watched me walk around looking for a good spot thinking “look at this idiot”. Needless to say when he flew down it was away and he hit the ground running lol. Then I found the bird above with 2 other jakes.

Had another Tom hang up at 75 yards right off the bat, so once I got this guy working he passed my 50 yard tree and I let him have it.

Good looking birds so far! Congrats to everyone and good luck to the others! Beautiful morning this morning and plenty of Toms but I’m hunting the high mountain snow birds I’ve been finding. These were out the window though.
May my presence go unnoticed, may my shot be true, may the blood trail be short.

Amen
