    Well B season is in the books for me 2018 was a success, downed a Nice Tom Thursday. The season started out with some serious anticipation To say I was like a little kid in a candy shop opening morning would be a understatement. Got out into the blind at 5.30 am Wed morning. Was hunting a known travel route on the edge of a cut corn field. Heard some gobbling near some roosting areas at 6-6.15 then all quiet. First hen showed at 7 then 3 more at 7 .15 and another at 7.20. No gobblers with. Was kind of bummed no gobblers were with the hens but I still had hope. At 8.30 I here a few gobbles . I throw out a few yelps and one strikes off. Well it took 20 minutes or so and here they come 3 Nice Toms. Call them to 62 yards and they hang up. They walk around a bit out of range and then walk away. Had a full strutter out with two hens and I think they spooked from it but will never no. Sat till 11.00 no more sightings. Go have dinner come back at 1 sit in another blind near a roosting area till dark not a bird heard or sighted. Thursday morning back to the cut corn field blind. Set out my full strutter and two hen decoys. Going all in or bust. Sun rises not a sound near the roosting area. Not a good sign but I still have faith. At around 8 I have two jakes come in at about 20 yds. Could of been over but had my mind set at a Tom. They play around a while and leave. At 10. 30 I see 2 toms and 6 hens out in front of me about 200 yards away. The Toms are both strutting with 4 hens in a cow pasture. I watch the show with my binoculars . While watching them I hear a gobbler strike off in the distance. . Give out a few yelps, and clucks and nothing. Sit and wait still hopeing something happens. At about 11 I look over and here one comes a nice Tom silently sneeking in at full strut. He slowly makes his way in at 35 yds he offers a ideal shot and I took him. Dropped him in his tracks. The end of the story and hunting season Was a great hunt enjoyed some great weather, saw a lot of activity turkeys, pheasants, deer, coyote and a opossum. And Fortunately bagged a bird. 21.88 pounds 10 inch beard, 11/4 spurs. Hopeing the rest of you are successful this season.
