Was a slow start to opening weekend. Normal hot spots were not showing any signs of birds. I drove past a spot I had permission on and saw a Tom bedded in the swamp with a hen. I parked my car at the landowners house. Got geared up and made roughly a 60-70 yard stalk. No luck! As I was walking out I almost stepped on the Tom. The hen flew off but the Tom had a broken wing and could not fly. He started walking away I yelled at him and he turned around. The rest was history!
