Got me another one!

Unread postby Moose » Thu Apr 29, 2021 7:37 am

Another great morning! Killed this Tom at 10am opening morning of our 4th season. I killed my first Tom ever on opening morning of the 1st season this year lol. It's awesome but I only hunted a total of 8 hrs for both seasons. Kinda wish it wasn't over so soon even though I'm blessed with both birds

Congrats Moose!

How did this one go down? What were some of the tactics that you used, what did the bird respond to, etc?

I roughly had an idea where they where roosted. I set up with my decoy in that area and heard alot of gobbling so I did some yelping and was getting alot of response back but nothing came in. Then I proceded to do some cutting and the gobbling kept getting farther away. I moved my setup about 250yds and started calling again. I heard a few gobbles but they still kept moving farther away. I set up about 200 more yards where my decoy could be seen easier in the hay field and kept calling but once again they kept moving away but answering back to my calls. So I dropped my vest and run and gun for about an hr and the birds where on the neighbors ground. I got up on a ridge and used my mouth call as loud as I could but they where really far now. So I slowly walked back to my setup and heard a gobble that was closer then I've heard for awhile and used my box call to do some gobbling,cutting and yelping. About 20 mins later this tom was coming in hot and fast to my decoy with another tom following. I'm not sure exactly what call I did actually made the tom come in but fussing it was the gobbling I did. I used a slat call, mouth call and a box call today to see what they preferred. The mouth call got alot of response but the box call sealed the deal.
