It was a pretty windy morning but across the field i was hunting a couple toms ran out and were strutting. I’m not sure whether they heard my calling or not because the wind was right at my face. They did see my decoys though! They disappeared over a hump in the field and i wasn’t sure where they went. All of a sudden right out in front of me a strutting tom walks over the hump. When he turned i got ready and he strutted over the hump again. Another one walked over and i took the shut but shot over him and he flew. The other tom popped back over the hill trying to see what just happened and i dropped that one. Solo public land hunt!
