  1. The Strut Stops Here

    Looks like ill be taken a buddy out this wed. I enjoy calling one in for somebody just as much as shooting one. Hopefully everything works out for this is only his 2nd year at it. Last year i took him and he shot a dandy bird with a 11 1/4 beard and 1 1/8" spurs and weighed a little over 23#'s.

    Birds in my area are too responsive, and yes i had 2 big fellas come in to my 1 tom and 2 hen set up. Accually i had the whole flock coming in and it was load with the hens and all the toms. One thing i fogured out is if there is alot of birds dont be soft calling. I tried to top the old hen and thats what pulled them my way. Good luck to my team and hopfully everybody could have a morning like I did, it wont be forgotten.

    I hit the woods yesterday morning and snuck into a little clearing and ended up being anout 50 yards from where they were roosting. They were very vocal and a few hens sounding off too. Soon as i started to call after they flew down the hens really got into it and accually pulled the toms to the west of me. I did get 1 to come in but only had like a 5-6 inch beard and 2 differnt groups of jakes so knowing there is around 20 toms in the flock of 80 or so i passed on him . Pretty hard to compete with that many hens. The snow is finaly starting to go so i think it will only get better. Heading out in the morning for a short hunt due to work.

  10. Team 3 "Strut Stoppers"

    Hey team looks like we are on a roll now, went out yesterday and ended up passing on a tom with about an 8" beard. This morning hit another place and the woods was loaded up with gobbles but with the fog we had it kept them pretty right. I decided to really get aggressive on my calling and that worked. Had a Jake in first followed by two hens, the gobbles was getting closer and finally thru the fog I seen two coming a cross the field. A few soft purrs and they come running right in. Not the biggest bird alirtle over 21# and. 10.75" beard I'll get registered later on So we are on the board, Good luck to my team and be safe.
  11. Team 3 "Strut Stoppers"

    I'm here and itching to hit the woods. Was out looking this morning and seen some here and there but not the numbers as previous years. I'll be able to hunt every day so that's a plus, my hunt is the first season so what is going to be the teams WINNING name.
