    Heck yeah, we had one follow us today as we beat feet side hilling to loop around him, the woods were so dry there's no doubt that he could hear us walking. He more or less mirrored our movement for a 300 yards or so as we tried to head him off and get level with him. He finally hit he brakes and we dashed up to the flat he was on about 150 yards ahead of him plopped down and a couple licks on the call later he was flopping. My buddies cousin popped him 20 yards out with the 410

    @Jade it was a first for me, now it coulda been pure coincidence but I'm sure we sounded a whole lot like a flock of hens marching through the woods. No such thing as being quiet when it's that dry.
