I screwed up!

I had a screw up yesterday Brick Wall,) I think we all have 'em. That's how we learn.
Hunted a night spot after taking a bird in the morning, and had hens all around me the whole time. Kept trying to get a tom to sound off, but couldn't get one to gobble, started thinking they weren't around. Finally after couple hours I heard one gobble a long ways off, 15 minutes later he gobbled again this time much closer and he had another with him, I knew they were coming. Then no more gobbles.
It was getting almost sun down, the hens were roosting and I basically figured the toms had given up so I just started to gather my stuff and bam, busted, there they were right next to me Brick Wall,) Iearned my lesson for the day Oops!

My daughter missed her first shot on a turkey this morning. Then we flushed another and it flew broadside about 30 yds away but she didn't shoot. When I asked her why she didn't shoot she said "I didn't know I could" She must have thought the bird would be standing on the ground Thumbs up
