    Hunted yesterday with one of my longbows. About 9am I had a gobble about 300 or 400 yards out in front of me. I had another gobble about same distance to the north of me. I wasn't using a blind just on ground with a camo in front of me. I was only calling every 30 mins. or so. I was getting cold about 09:30 looked around didn't see anything. As I start to stand up I see 2 long beards about 40 yards to my right, they saw movement started putting lightly and walked away.
    So I figured I just set there wait an hour then try and call them back. About right at the hour mark another long beard comes into the field in front of me. He's coming right to my hen decoy, gets about 40 yards out starts eyeballing the hen decoy turns down the field and walks away. :-(.
    This morning I figured I have them all figured out wrong saw a hen only heard few gobbles,

    Too bad, but I don't think very many guys would have stuck it out as long. How many birds come in after we have picked up and left.

    It's tough to turkey hunt past 9 for me.... it's just not deer season to me where I can stay on stand all day.

    Saw birds yesterday at 9am in a field while driving somewhere. The tom was strutting his stuff while the hen was eating. Drive by that field an hour later and they were still there.
