This morning, a fine Thursday, started at Stranger Creek. Having located roost sites the previous day, I hunted the north boundary edge behind a ground blind and one hen decoy. A turkey gobbled north of me about 200 yards multiple times starting around 6:10. By 6:45 this gobbler and a large assembly of hens aggregated in the middle of the field to my south. I called the group of hens with gobbler in tow to within 60 yards to my left at about 8 a.m. Several of these hens came within 10 yards, but the gobbler remained back suspicious with the other 8 hens. They stay put for a while, then departed back north. I ranged the distance to the gobbler position, it was 57 yards….clearly a risky shot. I departed around 9 a.m. in the pickup.
