Lady luck shined upon me as I bagged my 2nd Virginia long beard of the 2017 season. While hunting in the Jefferson National Forest I came upon an area completely tore up with fresh scratchin’ and knew the birds had to be close. A few calls later and the henned up gobbler answered. I ended up having to call in the whole flock before fate would allow me to squeeze off a 35 yard shot through the mountain laurels.
A great 2yr old bird and a great start to the 2017 season!
