Al.
We were going to but one of the cameras was down and the other went to another hunt up north.

Maybe next time..

I was all by my lonesome on this hunt.

Wabi,

The blood trail from the Jackhammers was easy to follow..

Since both my son and myself had killed out in this blind on our little 40 acre patch of hunting heaven I was going to pull the Trophy Den ground blind from the field it was on. No sense in taking a chance of it going bye-bye like some of my treestands have.

A long time bowhunting buddy Al said he would like to give turkey hunting a try with his bow so I told him I would leave it up for him. He had never been turkey hunting before.

This morning he called and said he got a jake.

He got to the blind a little late and after setting up his decoys he got in the blind. He said his slate call looked a little rough so he sanded it a little. He then thought he would do a few yelps to see if it sounded all right. He yelped on it a couple time and then set it down next to him. He then looked down the field and here comes two jakes.

Al wasn't even close to being ready. He had to get his bow, put an arrow in it. He then had to go through his pack to find his release. All the while the jakes were on a steady walk towards the decoys.

When the jakes got in among the decoys they started acting suspicious, as they couldn’t get any reaction out of either one. Al still wasn’t ready as the jakes started walking off.

Al had ranged a bush on the other side of the field at 35 yards and the jakes stopped just in front of the bush. One being broadside. That put them at 32 yards. Now Al is good enough of an archer to hit him in the eye at that distance so shame on the jake.

Al finally got all loaded up and arrowed the broadside jake. He went down on the spot. These Jack Hammers are devastating..

16 pounds and a 4-inch beard. His first and he is happy about that.
