We're still fairly new at this, but we were speculating that opening weekend was still kind of early in the mating cycle. We thought that was why we were getting sporadic responses to our calling.
Opening morning, we had several globblers in front of us and some live hens yelping behind us. When the globblers flew down shortly after daybreak, they headed directly away from us and the "live" hens. I would have second-guessed our calling except for hens that were trying to "help" us out. Go figure.
The one I got came straight in to the call. Again, go figure. Strange birds.
Sure beats waiting at home for the Caney to become fishable.
Good luck this weekend Buzz. Thanks Travis.
