Invisible Gobblers, Cuss fight hens, and Otti
« on: March 28, 2011, 09:49:33 AM »
Well, Well, Well.  Where do I even begin with this one  ;D
So we arrive at the Fayette County Swamp Gobblin Thunder Chicken Killin Land for CH's first turkey hunt. We hop on the Ziz Wheel and take off through the bottoms. Now I have got in mind going to this one bottom where we had all our birds gobble last week. But I stopped by a field where we heard one the week before. As soon as I stopped the Ziz... GOBBBLE!!!! bird was still there so off we went on a mission to relieve CH's twitchin trigger finger. Well we make within about two hundred yards of the tukey and he shuts up. Just like last week. We set there until after fly down and I call at the bird... Nothing... roughly an hour goes by and nothing. So we get up and start easing through the bottom down the river and cut through back towards where we came from.
"whoa!, look right there." CH says.
I'm thinkin its a turkey that has busted us only to turn around and see not one, not two, not three but get this...... FIVE otters all together running through the woods. FIVE of them!! A whole herd of OTTERS!!!!! We gave them the name Otti: meaning more than one otter in aggragate; together frolicking happily through the woods or Copperhead's terms: They looked like a pack of happy Weenie Dogs running through the woods  @--0--0105 but back to the turkeys after that once in a life time experience. We move to another spot after battling briars and pine trees. I tell CH this is where the magic happened last week. We set up. I call, then I cut. Box call out, call then cut, slate out..... you get the idea. Not five minutes after I get done we have a angry hen on the other side of the river that is telling us just like it is.  @--0--0105 No gobble though.
We make a move to where I killed my bird and I tell CH it's time to pull the rabbit out of the hat.
I call and then when I get done I gobble.... After I gobbled the whole woods began to shake with the sound of three different turkeys gobbling.
I tell CH it's on for sure now.  One bird was hammering it but was across the river, oh yea we had a hen come into the set up after the gobble too, but you can't kill a hen in Alabama. But the river bird is gobblin at everything. I tell CH we need to make a move and get set up across the river from this joker an kill him. So we move up  about two hundred yards right across from the turkey. I get real aggressive with the turkey and he starts gobblin every second comin to us. I know it's just a matter of time before the bird takes a ride back to North Alabama.  Finally the bird gobbles directly behind us on OUR side of the river. The turkey was within 45 yards behind us and we never did see him and just like the wind the bird decided he didn't want to gobble anymore despite my sexy soft hen yelps and we ended up empty handed. But ole CH was able to experience everything about the turkey woods besides the kill.

But really Five otters in one WAD!!!!

I will be taking him back for a kill when time allows I think he is hooked
