Hillesheim hunted almost three days, too, before waylaying a big gobbler as a thunderstorm was about to move in Monday afternoon.
“It was the first tom I saw,’’ he said.
After three days of pleasant spring weather, we awoke Tuesday — our last day — to hard rain and a biting north wind. The temperature hovered near 32. Of course, we went turkey hunting.
Hillesheim set up where he had shot his bird, while Kalahar and I sat in our ground blind where he had bagged his two birds on Sunday. Soon the rain turned to sleet, then snow — covering the ground and our decoys. The cold wind howled.
“Unbelievable,’’ Kalahar said. “I never dreamt we’d be hunting in snow down here.’’
At noon, without seeing another turkey, we packed our wet gear and headed for Minnesota. Still searching for spring.
