    Default Late season

    ADVERTISEMENT
    Pretty slow year for me. Was up north for 3 day hunt saw nice tom at 40yds but didn't like the shot so passed. Last weekend at home saw my first birds of the season 300yds and heading other way. Today figure I would go fishing and call it quits for the season, but no one able to fish today so went to new bush. Sitting by 5am, gobbling started at 510. Birds gobbled on and off for hour, but never got closer to me. Yote came by 20yds out but couldn't get gun around on it. At 610 decided I would take trail to other side of bush and gobbles. Stopped 20yds inside watching field. Gave a couple quick calls than waited. 10 minutes later 2 jakes come out. I take the lead jake at 40yds. other hangs out for 10min more than takes off. Not a great bird, better than tag soup.

    Way to go!

    I give you credit for going out.

    It hit 32C here yesterday. I had thoughts of a morning hunt to fill my second tag but decided to end my season & stay by the pool... lol

    I didn't mean to sound like I was belittling it. I actually prefer Jake's. It was good eat at least half. The other half I will give to to farmer who is gracious enough to let me hunt his property.
