With the threat of rain we hit the bush early ... the sun comes up and the birds are singing ... we get a response right off the bat ... but it fades away ... we relocate ... Chad calls and I snipe this nice Tom as he sneaks in ! ... we are out of the bush by 7:15 am . ... It was real dull and wet so I didn't bring the camera in to the bush ... probably a good thing because I barely got a chance to line up the shot = Sent a tight swarm of #5 shot at him and broke thru enough cover to bowl him over ... here are some shots back at the truck ... 20 lbs , 9 1/2 inch beard , 3/4 inch spurs .
Move quick to get out of the rain .... I scout a spot for tomorrow ... hope to fill my 2nd tag with my new Excalibur Vortex !
I see some brids in the distance on a new farm ... I approach the landowner and he gives me the green light for tomorrow ! I do a quick scout ... see some deer .. and the bush lot looks goooooooood !
This doe looks ready to drop fawns soon ( a little low in the belly ! ) ...
I bump two yougsters in the river flat corn stubble ...
At the end of the field scout I spot birds heading to roost ... I know where I will be tomorrow morning !
