Today was the first morning I have had the opportunity to go hunting this season. I hunted a farm that I knew held a lot of birds. I heard zero gobbling all morning, didn't even hear a hen. I started in the woods listening after a while I started calling lightly. Nothing ever give so around 9am I started working my way slowly to the west pasture on this farm. I could hear some crows in this area and hoped that was a good sign. I got close, called and nothing! I eased up to field edge staying just inside the wood line and I seen two heads looking over a small rise in the field. I froze! One of the two started strutting and slowly feeding to my left. I noticed a lot of hens behind them and they were paying attention to the wood line. I let the gobbler closest to me get to around 30 yards and finished the deal. I don't like killing them like this but that's how it is sometimes. It was strange though not hearing a single gobble this morning. I hope that changes soon. Almost forgot to mention the sunrise this morning was nice also.

Congrats, sometimes they just don't follow the script and a little luck goes a long way.
