The Heads Up Tom Turkey Decoy looked to be my best option, but I was still a bit skeptical. That was until I had my first long beard come running to five yards from my HUD before I could even get my bow drawn. My heart was pounding out of my chest! I totally bombed on a five-yard shot!
Morning roost hunts are as much about hearing the gobbling on the roost as anything. Unfortunately, the 30-40 mph winds pretty much muffled that. All we could hope for is to see them fly down and maybe see them out in the short pasture grass.
Common sense, awareness, and emotional control will always be required in a hunting situation. Hunters following the golden rule which is always properly identifying their target. Be absolutely certain what you're targeting.
