    Got up this morning at 3:00.
    Bound and determined to make my way up to a huge high knob I found a couple to three weeks ago.
    After a lot of huffing and puffing I make my way to where I thought I wanted to be.
    At daylight I quickly realized I was in the wrong spot although the birds were gobbling like mad.
    So I decided to sit there for a couple hours.
    That was until a old man pulled up behind me on a four-wheeler and started to sneak up on my decoys.
    I looked behind my tree and yelled really loud " stop" don't shoot" I'm a human"...he stopped and we talked and he left for another ridge.
    I decided to pack up and move further on over about 600 yards on the knob.
    I was not set up 5 minutes when 3 gobbled about 200 yards from me on over below the ridge, so I grabbed my glass pot and purple heart striker and gave 3 soft yelps.
    They hammered immediately!
    and then hammered again!
    then one just could not take it and doubled and tripled gobbled.
    He was 200 yards, then 150, then 100, then 50, closing ground fast!
    I stopped yelping and thumbed the safety off my 500
    And got ready. Then at 30 yards on my right side he thundered a gobble that shook me,
    and then here he came in full strut making a bee line for my new Jake and hen decoys.
    His head turned different colors and he was mad as hell, he jumped up and ninja kicked my Jake decoy right off the stake and started pecking and flogging it at 20 steps
    I couldn't take it no longer..BOOM!!!
    my 500 roared and absolutly pounded him! What a beautiful day!
    Hell yeah!!!!

    Great story dude! Gotta love the old dude on the four wheeler who can't tell a decoy from a real turkey lol. Was he trespassing on private land or illegally using a four wheeler on public land?

    I was always under the impression a ATV was a no no on a WMA..SO HE WAS IN VIOLATION OF THE LAW..DEBATING ON WETHER OR NOT TO NOTIFY FISH AND GAME AND THE CORP OF ENGINEERS..ANY THOUGHTS?

    Congratulations Outdoorsman12!
    For some reason, I thought you were going to say that after you moved 600 yards, you hadn't been set up 5 minutes when here came the old man on the four-wheeler again.

    Still wondering if law enforcement and the Corp of engineers should be notified of the ATV presence?
    I'm a nice guy, I don't want to be a horses a-- to another man..somehow it just don't seem well...sportsman like..that fellow also has a ladder stand up there year round..I just don't know how to call it..any advice would be appreciated
