Default Shockwave

Called in a nice little buck with my shockwave this morning. I used a little bit of all the deer calls on it. Called with a sound for a few minutes then stayed quite for about 15 to 30 minutes. Shot him with my Savage smokeless my first with the gun. He ran about a 100yards with his lungs and hart turned to mush. I have a idea he came in just to see what all the racked was about. At least I am on the score board, now to get another one.

I called in #2 this morning had him on the ground at 7:30 a nice bag flop. Drove the 4-wheeler right up to him. At my age that is a big plus.

Default Called a monster

Had a great hunt called a giant 12 point to 40 yards My new Mossberg 535 turkey thug safety locked up. The buck saw me trying to get it un stuck and took off The Fawn bleats worked the best .Called for 20 min and a 6 point came in I dropped him in his tracks. It was a great day for calling. Going to hunt this weekend With two of my grand Sons. Will let you know.
