Congratulations. Your son's turkey looks to have a lot of blue on his head.

How do all of you guys keep finding turkeys asleep hanging upside down from limbs? Crazy toms... I never see hens hanging upside down.

Thanks fellas. It was one for the ages. Tripp's bird and our first two weeks of the season were the highlights of it for me. If both my boys want to and keep hunting turkeys with me there will be some more great ones ahead. As far as quality of birds though in a single season, not sure I'll ever touch that again.

I still haven't gotten my video uploaded to a hosting sote, but I got Tripp's entire kill and after party on my phone. I acted a fool...couldn't help it. Lol. We worked so hard and had been sooo close last season and opening weekend for youth...when it went by the script I was a little pumped. And he couldn't even talk he was still shaking so bad. It was more intense sitting behind him watching that bird strut in slowly than the 5 minutes I had that big bird yesterday inside 25 yards and couldn't swing on him. Felt like an eternity.

Sure you will. You hunt down there on the turkey farm where there is a 1+ inch spur Tom in every tree


Awesome season Will Some awesome birds you killed but my most favorite is your sons bird and that walking away pic. One fit for magazines bud

Thanks ����
All those long spurred turkeys at Tin Top...both my birds this year are #1 and 2 for me down there. I'm usually finding eager 2 yr olds around that place. Bad hatches have hurt it and most of the birds are now 3+ yr olds. Its actually very concerning. It really isn't what it once was.

And yes I agree, even if ts my kid and I took the pic, Tripp's picture is special. Makes me feel a certain way anytime I see it.
