Went this morning. The boys were gobbling in the dark. As soon as the first girl showed up, the boys took off and more girls joined them. The girls took the boys east. Something that has never happen before. Before my very bad hawg problem two years ago, I had them patterned. My flock has gone from 200 to around 30. Hawgs suck!

I got out for the opener yesterday. My wife and i agreed that I basically had only yesterday to hunt so I would avoid venturing out more than necessary with the virus crap.

I located a bird at the only remaining roost I know of, thanks to the place being clear cut currently....

I setup 100 yards from him. There's usually 10+ birds there, but he was alone. I called twice between 6:15 and 6:45. He flew down 20 yards from me behind brush. He began to work to my north, behind me. I called twice and he came back quick, circling to my left. He popped out, I saw a beard and dang near removed his head. He landed about 5 yards away from me, due to the shockwave.

I couldn't have been happier with everything going on in life to have success so quickly. I got a bonus beard on him too, for my first double bearded bird. That roost will be cut down in the next month and I'll be looking for a new place to hunt.

The shell for comparison.
