My 11yr old got his first gobbler this morning. By the time we got around all the water and got to them, they were on the ground in the neighbors pasture. We put out a hen decoy and set up on the firelane inside the fence. They gobbled a million times at my calls, but would not come close enough to see the decoy. They eventually started away from us down the fence so we jumped up and cut through the woods to head them off. I got the decoy in the firelane and we settled in against a tree. Before I got my call out they sounded off at a crow and were right on top of us. They saw the decoy and the boss broke into strut and came right in. He shot him at 15 steps. 20lbs, 9 1/2in beard, and 1in spurs.
