    In the stand 5 minutes and I call a hen into my setup for 15 minutes. She was making all the sounds I'm trying to make but I'm tone deaf I think.
    She got bored and wandered off.
    Awesome encounter! Still plenty of time...

    Dead quiet except for one other hunter occasionally calling.

    Apparently 2 hours early is not early enough .... both the spots I wanted to hunt had campers on them.

    The misery of the phone. It helps me sit more still and for a longer period of time...BUT sometimes is screws things up.

    When I'm calling in a tom and they are gobbling and then go silent, one of two things is going on 1-they are coming in silent (happens often - it's why I sit for another hour minimum before moving) or 2 - they lost interest/found hens. It's a surprising portion of the time when they work in silent....OR some other tom will sneak in silently that never gobbled.

    Waiting on AZ to get out of bed so we can go chase some birds. Rained all day yesterday. Should be a good day!
