what did you use for cover on the stalk? on some of my successfull stalks i was able to use the terrain like keeping a little hill or ridge in between the bird and me and i was able to get close, but was there any wind to cover your noise? i'm just curious . . . great job on the stalk and on your friends bird as well

no wind and the birds had just gone over a grass hill about 3 foot of grass and i just army crawled with my gun until i thought i was close enought and nelt up to look and he was in full strut facing the 3 hens and 2 jakes which were walking the other direction and when he fanned himself to one side i got a clear shot of his head and took it at 15 yards, i also noticed on my trail cam i got a picture of him 30 minutes before i shot him.
