    Went out this evening. I had been calling this spot for about 20 min when these kids showed up. They Parked there atv's about 100 yards up the hill walked down. I could hear them talking all the way to where they sat down and started calling. I gave them 15 min to see what they could bring in. after that i started playing with them. They never did see us. Video below.

    Tha reminds me of my younger days... Turky hunting in VT with my brother inlaw, his father and grand father... My brother
    And I were hunting alone, his father and grand father were hunting together...

    All morning it was slow and quiet. You can only hunt till noon there, I was headed back to the house when i Heard a hen start calling... I took out my box call and attempted a gobble.. ( it sounded like a Tom getting merdered) but to my suprise it the hen called back and I heard another gobble close by... I started stocking the sounds.... Abouth ten minuets of this and the calling stopped....

    Needless to say it was the two old men playing games with me..

    I'm glad you had fun and everything worked out but that's a very dangerous game to be playing.

    You never know when someone is going to just start shooting your way... .gun)

    I'd have played with there heads too, but...
    A buddy of mine set out some decoys 15-20ft off in the pond one day and sat waiting for some ducks. A little while later he noticed a guy across the pond ~60-70 yds. Before he had a chance to move the guy opened up on his decoys and peppered him with lead... Lucky he wasn't hurt.

    We had a similar situation happen to us, we use a Wildlife Tech caller that has out standing sound quality and volume, we let them settle in and try to call us in for a bit then we hammered them with a wolf serenade :cool: I think their mommies had some bad laundry to do judging by the velocity of their departure :D

    I had a client/friend in Maryland that ended up losing almost all the sight in his right eye and that side of his face paralyzed.

    What I was thinking about more was a fellow about fifty miles from here that got shot a couple of years ago at close range with an 06 through the gut when his son shot him.

    The boy had been watching a deer moving through cover and got over excited and the Dad (admittedly) had a case of the stupids and got out of his blind to go over and check on the boy.

    Well the boy heard him rustling through the blue bushes and plum thicket where the deer had disappeared and took a "sound shot".

    Especially when hunting public land and you don't know the fellow across the way one always has to think about what the dumbest SOB in the woods is least likely to do and bet on it happening!

    We used to hear of about a half dozen or dozen "accidental shootings" on public land in New Mexico every year when I lived out that way and some of the stories were utterly astounding as to the level of stupidity involved.

    Sorry this is completely off topic but...

    Have you heard about the harshbarger shooting that took place here in Newfoundland a few years ago? The couple were from the States, in NL on a hunting trip. Mrs. Harshbarger was a professional marksmen, could shoot a 6" group at 1000yds. But at 60yds she mistaken her husband for a bear and shot him. During the trial when asked why she didn't move when she heard him screaming she said her feet were tired and blistered from walking most of the day.
