Mike Roux: Patience pays off when hunting Tom Turkey
It was at least 40 minutes before sunrise and we were still 300 yards from the spot where my turkey hunting buddy Trey Reneau wanted us to set up. I tell you that because we were both shocked to hear five or six toms already gobbling on the ridge across the river. The bottom field where Trey had us put out my decoys was below the ridge where the birds were roosted. Trey told me this spot was either feast or famine. He said if the turkeys pitch off and fly across the river to us, the field would fill up with big black birds. If they came straight down they would go to the ridge and we would never see them. We had our fingers crossed.
