I went out on opening day and heard 3 gobblers,but all of them off our property. I hunted til 1:00 with no luck. Went again on Saturday the 25th, only day I could go because I was scheduled to have surgery and had to be up in STL on Monday for pre-admission tests , with surgery on Friday. At 7 or so had 2 hens come by, both had beards,but I passed on them. Then at 7:30 2 jakes ran across the hi-line I had a blind set-up on. Still no gobbling, so at 8:20 I got out of blind and stepped out into hi-line. Down at the end was a gobbler in full strut! I froze, then realized his back was to me! I scurried back into the blind just in time to see a hen come out into the hi-line. I clucked to her and she started walking towards me. The gobbler was strutting back and forth across the hi-line. to make a long story shorter, he finally got into range and I shot him in the face. Double bearded- 10.25" and 4.5". 1 spur was missing, the other was just a hair short of 1" 1st Double bearded bird for me!
