    <P>Last night I took Tom Marsillo, turkey hunter extraordinaire out and we roosted some turkeys.&nbsp; This morning, Tom brought his video camera and we met up with John to see what we could do.&nbsp; We got set up, and from the first note on Tom's call, game on!&nbsp; We watched several hens and a gobbler fly down from the roost.&nbsp; Unfortunately, they flew right out into the open field and the gobbler was strutting by about 6:20.&nbsp; We had two more gobblers fired up behind us.&nbsp; One came in at about&nbsp;10 yards from Tom and the video camera.&nbsp; Unfortunately, I was facing the wrong way!&nbsp; He saw the hens and the&nbsp;gobbler out in the field and bee-lined it to them.&nbsp; A few moments later, another gobbler came out into the field about 60 yards away, and sprinted at a dead run out to the other birds.&nbsp; By 6:30 we had three long beards in the field strutting.&nbsp; Sadly for us, with all of the hens they were tending to, we just could get one to shake loose.&nbsp; Finally, the call of Cracker Barrel overcame our desire to stick it out, and we&nbsp;packed it in.&nbsp; I know where I'll be the next warm sunny morning...&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; </P>

    You failed to mention that I didn't take the shot on the closest gobbler in order to let you have a crack at him.&nbsp; Had I known you were not facing him, my gun blast would have caused you a sanitary problem that only your dry cleaner would have known.
