Set up in a good spot, had 4 or 5 gobbling from the roost and right before they came off heard a couple of hens.
So we started some tree yelps and got some response

We had a weird thing, 3 birds came in behind us, never saw us, walked up to our decoys and one strutted at our Thunder Chicken for a short time.
We should have shot him but my son wanted to try for a double and the other bird never gave us a shot.
The 3rd bird was a hen.

The gobblers wandered off and the hen stayed around for awhile and wandered off
We heard several more fly down but after they came off the roost,they shut up.
They were already with hens it seems

Never saw another one, heard several.

We did get to shoot a big orange pig in the face with our turkey guns though..that was fun

Why does TPD have opening day so late here?
It's like starting deer season after the rut is going on..

Lots of birds gobbling near Breckenridge. Last night the coyotes had them gobbling back and forth down the river. Lots of jakes, plenty of mature toms.

Young county. Set up on one I roosted last night. Had two answering me this morning. Almost pulled one in, but I can't get them to leave their hens. Also way to much human activity around me. With the wind picking up, I think it's time to do something else the rest of the morning.

Birds were quiet till 8:15, then they let loose. Can still hear them gobbling in several locations on the ranch. Had 2 gobblers come in and a Jake later, but no big birds yet this morning.

What's the best way to hunt them in the evening?
Ambush style when they are returning to roost?

Run and gun. Try to strike up a hot bird. Water is typically good too. And traveling back to roost the last hour is always a solid approach. Just donít want to set up too close and booger them off an established roost.
