Didnít hear a single gobble while they were on the roost, bout 7:45a had 2 longbeards come into the dekes and put on a great show. Buddy and I doubled up on a couple beautiful Atascosa county longbeards!

Hopefully so. Good luck! I was off on that 8:15a time when I posted (although it felt like we sat till 8:15a without hearing a single peep), we killed those birds about 7:45a

Iím kind of kicking myself for being real conservative and not getting in tight to them like I normally do while they were on the roost. Figured since I had my camera gear and running solo to hang back a bit.
