#1 REASON FOR THIS SUCCESSFUL HUNT:
Set up on same tree as yesterday. Rain today. Had tree umbrella that saved the day. Had 2 gobbling at daylight and they went the other way but after rain stopped heard gobbling. Was patient and when they got finished with their hens 2 toms worked to my calling and killed the first one that gave me a shot. Other one was bigger but I'm happy with 2 public land birds in 3 hunts.
