Default What a morning!

Well for starters I worked 11:00 am Monday - 7:00pm Monday evening then decided to come back in at 9:00pm Monday - 3:30 am Tues just so I could go scouting. Boy was it worth the trouble and lack of sleep!!! I dug myself in along a field edge where Bullmoose and I have been getting pictures of a nice long beard. Sunrise came and went and all I heard were some faint gobbles to the east. I was kinda bummed, but decided to stick around just in case there was a gobbler in the area w/ tight lips. Next thing you know I hear a couple hens start yelping...I'm thinking this is good, could be a gobbler in tow. The farmers dog starts barking and absolutely sets this bird off...gobbling his head off. After a few minutes I see a fan cresting the knuckle in the field, here they come. Two long beards and 3 or 4 jakes...I couldn't tell exactly bc the sun was directly in my eyes. So I watched the show for awhile ..all the while wishing it was opening day. After 10-15min I started planning my escape w/o being seen. I look behind me and discover I'm sitting in a quagmire of green briars, but you gotta do what you gotta do. I belly crawled about 20yds under blow downs through briars just to get away unseen...I'm so ready for the 26th to get here!!!
