Chasing Spring: Swamp Gobblers

Chasing Spring: Swamp Gobblers

We battled four days of downpours during our Chasing Spring Florida expedition, but we still managed to have a great hunt.

A couple things I notice when watching the video:
* If you watch closely when the big gobbler shows up, you see him start to go behind the tree trunk, but his head trails behind his body and he takes one last
'backwards' peek before moving forward. I have gotten burned numerous times by shifting my gun just before they trail their head like that.
* Those Florida turkeys, which are supposed to be so reticent to gobble and yelp and cut, seem to light it up when they are called to with excited calling. Shows you that turkeys are, indeed, turkeys wherever they live. If you sound excited, they sound excited right back.
Great footage, and the video is well put together...

Yeah I know what you mean. I watched a friend of mine shoot a woodchuck with his bow on video the other day and the 15 yard shot looked more like a 30 yard shot.

The Tree shot ( miss) was about 17 yards, Swamp kill with Chris was about 26 yards and field Gob with Roy was a little over 30, when you pull back with a video camera, it always looks farther than it really is

Looks like an interesting trip. Fun for the entire family. Disney, gators, fishing, turkey, hogs, air boats, swamp folk. What more could you want?
