    Henned up Longbeard.

    I went out this morning and set up on some gobblers that I roosted last night. Slow start at first but they fired up around 6:45am. I pretty much had a 50/50 chance of them flying down into my field or the field behind me. Wouldn't you know it, they pitched down behind me. I knew right away that they were with hens and I was in trouble. I tried working them for a while but eventually decided to move to the other side of the property. Knowing where they were heading, I circled around to the very last field on our property. I wasn't even finished setting up when I saw the first hen coming down the wood line. With almost no time to spare, got my gun on my knee and waited. The 4 hens walked past me at 5 yards and soon I saw the gobblers. The first was a Jake, followed by a Longbeard. When the Jake reached the opening where the hens had past, he saw me. As he began to put, the Longbeard ran up to see what was going on. Big mistake. When he reached the Jake, he too saw me and started to turn around. I paused for a few seconds to let the Jake get out of the way and took my shot. Not a bad start to the season. He ended up a little on the light side with 3/4 inch Spurs, 17.5 pounds and 9.5 inch beard.
