Went out to Winona this morning and there was about a 1000 other people out there. I knew it was going to be cuthroat trying to get a bird. Finally heard one gobbling and eased down to him. I could hear some faint calling back to my left, so i setup hoping the bird would come by me first. The guy worked him on on in and the bird was about 60 yards from me when he stopped gobbling. I waited another 40 minutes or so and could hear movement to my left during a break in the wind. Finally saw a glimpse of the bird and i let the ole 10 gauge fire 2 times. Dropped him right there in his tracks through all the brush.

Was i ever surprised when i got to him though. Pretty embarrassed by what it was, but i just knew it was a turkey when i shot because the feet looked just like a turkey and had the same colors has a turkey sorta. At least i still have two tags and can try it again tommrrow. You guys will probably get mad at me for trying to kill a jake, but ya gotta do what ya gotta do

Please let me know when your hunting in white county so I can go somewhere else. Ever heard of identifying your target. Lucky you didn't shoot someone. Not cool man

What area do you hunt in?

I don't think I'd be in any hurry......there are no "roosters" in NWTF....there's only "Toms" "Hens" and "Jakes"....Tyson's might have a record book though:smack: :razz:
