Finally, 3 days prior to the end of our Indiana season I was able to score. I walked across the first field toward the woods I was going to hunt. Upon nearing the second field I ran 2 birds out of the field and into the woods. I tried to circle out around them to head them off.....but with no luck. I picked up and went to the field on the back side of the woods. Nothing there either, so went to the north side and still nothing. So I thought maybe they were using the same field they were using before it got so much tracffic from mushroom hunters on the way to the woods. So i snuck up to within 30 yrds of the field and saw 2 out in this field. They were about 20 yards into the field feeding towards the middle. I let them get out about 70 yrds and then got set up just 10 yrds off the edge. I made one series of calls and he spun around and started strutting my way leaving the real hen behind. He came straight down the corn row and stopped just 10 yrds, directly behind a huge briar bush. I had no shot at all. So i turned slowly to allow shots to both sides of the briar bush. He stayed behind it for at least 5 minutes, not even a step. I didn't have a diaphram in my mouth so I had to use my own voice to do a soft purr and yelp and he cut me off with another thunderous gobble. He commited to the right side of the briar bush so I had my gun waiting for him when he cleared the bush. I knocked hiim in the dirt at just 7 yrds. What an afternoon hunt!!!!! However at the same time I was taking the abuse from hummingbird sized mosquito's. But it was all worth it!!!! 25 pound, 10 inch beard and 23 mm spurs!!!!! Can't wait to try mounting my first turkey!!!!
