    Posting this up finally!

    Shot this tom with my bow first Saturday of the season. Set up in the middle of an alfalfa field where usually one or two hang every year. Got set up really early, train went by 30 minutes later and this one chain gobbled about 20 times in a row. Flew down fairly early and just strutted on the edge of the field and looking towards the timber. 5 Hens finally flew down to other end of the field and he chased them around for 2 hours. Couple of the hens chased off the other 3 and were coming in hot to do the same to my 2 hen dekes. He followed them right in and shot him at about 5 steps, just about severed his opposite wing completely off. Fun hunt! Think next year gonna go without the blind and chase them around with a bow.
