    It will. I am bringing the legs/thighs over to the father in law in a little bit here. He slow cooks them and we make sliders with them end up tasting very similar to pulled pork. Then I’ll make a batch of enchiladas with a breast for the wife later in the week. It’s her favorite. For now it’s time for a little nap. The little guy is out cold. Hopefully for an hour

    I have been attempting to hunt with a pellet rifle, and have had two mechanical issues on two shots fired (dislodged the bolt on one shot, and the scope rings were loose on the second).

    Today with the rain, I took the shotgun out... Toms were relatively quiet (except for some on the limb shock gobbling at coyotes).

    Hens flew down, and then a group of toms/jakes flew down, and I was right between them... I could see the hens, and they were not nervous at all, and answering my calls. Those toms/jakes could seemingly care less about that group of hens though? Hens meandered past me clucking and purring, and the toms headed off in the other direction?

    So I picked up, and went to a locale where I have seen a lone tom later in the morning... As I was close to my spot, I did a little "walking & talking" with some hen calls, and a bird hammered off about 500 yards away... I sat down quickly, and caught a glimpse of that bird running to me... He hung up just below the saddle I was on for about 2 minutes, and with a little enticing purring, he presenting himself nicely:
