    Default season ends as it started

    Been along time since I've gone wire to wire. This season dragged as luck was not on my side. Lots of close calls but the hunting gods favored the birds. Morning started with 2 hens leaving the bush with 3 Jakes in tow. Threw some calls but it was quickly evident that I could neither seduce the Jakes or provoke the hens as they meandered around the field. Knew if I was going to eat turkey it would mean trying to get infront of them. Bit of cat and mouse got me to a position to take one of the Jakes. When I collected the bird a smile arose as the Jake was one bird I had seen earlier in the season as it had a unique tail. Guess there is such a thing as a trophy Jake
