A beautiful sunny high pressure morning usually means lots of gobbling and that it was. However I just couldn't seem to win love talk competition. These birds have been super henned up lately. Oddly enough I've even noticed some birds hanging in the trees much longer than they normally do this time of the year, and these turkeys aren't pressured. I worked two different turkeys but just couldn't seem to get in front of them. By the time 9:30 rolled around it was time for me to head back to work. I jumped in the truck and was headed home and happened to notice a Tom strutting with hens down in a big hardwood hollow and wen I saw him I just kept on riding down the road. I got past him a good ways, pulled over and parked, threw on my vest and grabbed the Winchester. I walked down a logging road that was right above the big hardwood bottom he was in. I set up and began calling and in no time I had his ladies up in front of me and he was soon to follow. If you have never shot a Winchester LongBeard XR shell you need to at least see how good it shoots through your gun. This turkey locked up at 63 steps and wasn't coming any closer because he had six hens with him. When they cleared the way I let the Winchester sling lead and knocked the bird a back flip. AT 63 STEPS! And that's in the timber! I love these shells and again encourage everyone to try them. Nothing special I did on this hunt, all the credit goes to Winchester and a great Turkey Ammo they make! Happy Hunting and be safe friends.
