My Fourth hunt, May 8,was with two gentlemen from Omaha NE. They booked a one day hunt.  We hunted hard. In the End we had one miss, three close encounters and a lot of gobbling.

My Fifth hunt, May 10-11,was with Brett Griest. he had first contact me at the beginning of the season to acquire some scouting information, which I was able to put him in on bird from the get go.  However, he did not get a bird in the first three days. So he contacted me for a two day hunt.  We hunt hard the first day in the rain. We were able to get into gobblers, but no luck.  That night we roosted a bird for the next day.  The next morning, we had a blue bird morning.  The bird was gobbling and we got set up.  A few tree calls and the game was on. the bird flew down right in front of Brett. GAME OVER.
