Show Down with a Sundance Gobbler
Best Friend Joel "ESKI" headed out the last evening of the Wyoming turkey season to fill his last tag. After climbing up a 1700' rock face to reach a small plateau, he set up. The birds had been using this small out crop all season as a safe roosting spot accessible only by flight or a 80 degree climb. He heard gobblers in the drainage below and made several excited hen cackles with his Maple Shine Box and simulated an early fly up with his hat. The gobblers went crazy that there was already a hen at the roost! in a matter of minutes 2 gobblers took flight and landed with in 15 yards on the top of the plateau. He took the bigger of the 2 birds. Thanks for the picture and great story Brother!
