I saw a couple toms across the road from my hunting spot on my drive to the woods. Once I got to my spot I did a few loud yelps and then held off calling for a while. After not seeing anything for a hour I decided to do some aggressive calling. Within 20 minutes of doing some aggressive calling I had this Tom and another at 25 yards in the woods with no shot opportunity. They ended up popping out of the woods and giving me a shot at 40 yards. First Mother’s Day Tom!
