Today was the first day of my season. I didn't hear much gobbling. I was sitting at the base of a huge cotton wood at the bottom of a hill by the Kaskaskia river. I was calling every 5 minutes or so. I noticed a head bobbing down the hill. He walked behind some brush and I got ready. He kept walking towards me and I'm looking my damnedest to see a beard. When I saw it he stopped and stared at my decoys. His head started turning red. He staightened his neck straight up in the air and I let him have it. 2oz of # 6's put him down hard at 32 yrds. He was a 18 1/2lb jake. I will post pics when I either get them developed or my hunting partner sends me the ones he took.
