Buckladd, Nice when a plan works. It took me about 30 minutes to get the birds in close. I thought I had called in a hen with a tom until they finally got close enough for me to really see them. It was a jake in the lead and my Tom right behind him fanning and yodeling with every step. It was quite a show. The problem was that they were so close to each other that I couldn't shoot. When they finally separated a bit I threw some lead. I used my box call and a new glass slate for most of my calling but for the final few yards I made some very soft clucks and purrs with a mouth call. I was sitting totally exposed and in their line of sight so I couldn't move my hands for the other calls.
I'm going to see if I can get my son a chance at a bird. Hopefully I can call something in for him other than a hen.
You shot my birds twin, 22 lbs, 8 inch beard, 1 1/8 and 1 inch spurs.
