    <P style="MARGIN: 0px">Hunted outside of Green Springs this morning. Birds were really active. Three started gobbling non-stop at around 6:15. Convinced this one to come take a look at the decoys at just before 7:00. Shot him beak to beak with my tom decoy. What a rush!</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">&nbsp;</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">Huffy</P>

    <P style="MARGIN: 0px">Great job guys!!!&nbsp;<IMG src="http://www.websitetoolbox.com/images/boards/smilies/thumb.gif" align=absMiddle border=0> My buddy and I roosted some birds last night in two different stops.&nbsp; We decided to split and have better luck on our own.&nbsp;&nbsp;I set up in my spot while watching the gobbler in the tree gobbling his head off!!&nbsp; Started to call and hens appeared all around me.&nbsp; One even flew out of the tree across the river to see whats going on.&nbsp; Then maybe 10 minutes later seven more hens came in with a quite strutting tom.&nbsp; What a show!!!&nbsp; Harvested&nbsp;him less then a minute later at 15 yards.&nbsp;<IMG src="http://www.websitetoolbox.com/images/boards/smilies/biggrin.gif" align=absMiddle border=0> 17lbs, small 4 inch beard and 1 inch spurs with beautifully tail.&nbsp; I was done by 7:05.&nbsp; What a morning!!</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">&nbsp;</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">My buddy had no luck first thing.&nbsp;&nbsp; His birds went the opposite way. &nbsp;So we meet up at&nbsp;his barn and put my gun and bird in the truck.&nbsp; We then went to burger king for coffee after checking my bird in.&nbsp; Went back to his farm noticed 7 to 8 birds in his field.&nbsp; They spooked and ran into the woods.&nbsp; We&nbsp;moved down the field to the edge of the wood line and I started calling.&nbsp; Well needless to say they came back to us and my buddy harvested his gobbler 18lbs, small 3 inch beard&nbsp;and&nbsp;1 1/4 spurs with nice tail.(10:45) <IMG src="http://www.websitetoolbox.com/images/boards/smilies/biggrin.gif" align=absMiddle border=0>&nbsp;Both hunts seemed like what you see on a hunt video!!&nbsp; Awesome!!!&nbsp; Heading back out tomorrow morning!!&nbsp;</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">&nbsp;</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">Good luck and safe hunting!!</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px">&nbsp;</P>
