Pretty Boy Does It Again
I have attached a photo of a friend of our family. Brian is one of my "adopted" hunting sons. He has hunted with my twin sons for as long as they could hunt. Brian drew the first period for spring season here in central Wisconsin. He hunted the first three days before work, and after, and came close, but no bird. My sons came home from collage and Zeb hunted on thursday with him, no bird. Zach went on friday, no bird. They came close but they hung up on them. They asked if I wanted to go on saturday ( heck yah!, of course!). Zach and I would call for Brian. I had purchased the Pretty Boy & Pretty Girl set earlier this year. I thought it would be a good time to try them out!. Brian had a fan from a tom from 2007. To make a long story short, we covered about 100 miles hitting every piece of public land and private land we could hunt. After 3 sets and 10 hours of running and calling, we found some toms who wanted to play! We walked in about a mile and set up. We worked these toms for over 45 minutes. They hung up just inside the woodline, but when they spied the Pretty Boy they RAN in! We had four toms in front of us, drumming and spitting - it was great! Brian dumped the biggest. He was 22lbs, 10" beard and 1 1/8" spurs. I have never seen birds run in like that! I drew the fourth season and can not wait!!
