Story: On the first day of the Fall 2014 Season, my hunting partner and I were walking towards our stand. We spotted a couple turkeys in front of the stands, but they ran off. We dropped most of our gear and followed them. We tried to call them back, but there was no response. We moved in closer trying to spot them. They were scared by our movements, so we backtracked towards our stand. Once we got to our stand, we waited approximately five minutes and about seven turkeys appeared. Time for the perfect shot!
