Can't buy a break!
Man, I just can't get a break this year! I could've shot a bunch of jakes but the toms just don't want to work or I screw up somehow.
Busted a tom off the roost Friday morning 1st set up. On the 2nd set up we had a lone tom crossing a field and we set up about 10 yards apart, my caller to my left. The bird circled into the woods and came out 20 yards to the left of my caller, checked out the decoy and walked off. He had a wide open shot but is already tagged out.
Still got half the season left, but I'll admit that I'm getting frustrated.
