Got this guy last weekend in Duval. It didn't take much to coax him to fly over the high fence onto our place after he saw the decoys I had set up. Got him at 10 yards. He was a two year old bird with an 8.5" beard although he looks like a jake in the picture.

Now that's an accomplishment to have a bird fly a high fence. Congrats! I once had a pair of toms fly a pond to get at me-now that was a sound ill never forget.

Thanks! There were two of them and only one flew over. I didn't think they would as the high fence has stopped them before. Once he saw the decoys though, he was over in about 5 seconds. Very exciting!
