Hunting big gobblers that qualify as a limb hanger is a great way to enjoy a day out.
Scouting is often the key to finding those birds. I use my SPYPOINT trail cameras when ever possible. They work 24/7 when I can’t get out to scout.
My GobbleStalker Glass Pot Call enticed this gobbler, two hens and two jakes to visit my Dave Smith Hen Decoy set conveniently 20 yards away from where I sat.
My H.E.C.S. camo kept me almost invisible to any wary eyes.
He started gobbling his head off at 5;20 am just as after I sat down from setting up my decoy.
Fly down was at 5;55 am. A few clucks and purring on my pot call and a short 10 minute walk later he stood 46 yards away still gobbling.
This Tom gobbled the entire time I was there.
The two hens and jakes were already clucking and purrring at my decoy 23 yards away moments before I pulled the trigger on my Browning Citori.
A quick score on the bird indicated 1 inch spurs, 9-1/4 inch beard and just over 24 pounds.
