Season opened Saturday, I hunted today(Monday). It took me 20 minutes to set up my blind, the decoy and my cameras. I made my little schpeel on the video about what time it was(12:25), where I was at and I made a few calls..... a few minutes later this guy walks in and spooks at the decoy. Well, he didnt make it far and I didnt get it on camera.... oh well. Hunt was over at 12:40 and I was making dead bird pics and packing up.

Doc, tradition says you have to be in the woods an hour before daylight, set up & ready to go, whats with the 12:25 starting time?  Great lookin' TN gobbler!!  Can't go until Friday this week, my partner got 2 birds so far.  Lots of them around.

I did an extensive study on light leakage around my eyelids which took until probably 8am. Once I woke up completed the study, I had to do a few things around the house before hunting. I hunted, I killed, I breasted him out and froze the breast. I then left and proceeded to cut and weed-eat 3 yards. I was pooped once I was finished. I may go in the morning and get the main bird as this guy was a satellite bird.
