Went to a property I wasn’t sure what the regulations were due to homes in the area. So I checked POI after swapping from a 125grn slick trick to a 100grn swhacker at 4:00am with the help of my headlights(haven’t shot since December). Turns out I just needed to be 100 yards from the homes, but I decided to leave the gun in the car. Got out to the field where there was probably 20 deer in it and when I went to check property lines I couldn’t find my phone. Ran back to the car and still couldn’t find it. It was in the one pocket I didn’t check in my bag that I left in the field. The fog cleared as I got back to my things and I thought I saw a bird running away over the property line. Only heard a few gobbles but a hen pulled two nice Toms perpendicular to me but 150 yards away. A loner came within 60-70, but wouldn’t commit to the decoys. The hen lead the Toms to a water hole and then brought them by again but way out of range. Once she passed by two deer in the field she started running and the gobblers were in hot pursuit. I called it a morning at 9:00, but I’ll be back with the 870 tomorrow and on the other side of the field.
