Thumbs up Excellent weekend in the turkey woods.

We got to the property Saturday morning and I sat in the truck while James tried to locate one. We didnt really care for the first setup and wasnt really hearing much so it was still early and we rode to other side of the compartment and struck up a bird on the tree immediately. He was about 150 yards away and flew down. I got out and got setup real quick and James backed the truck out.

He was gobbling his fool head off but wouldnt commit so we guessed he was with hens and just decided to sit there a while. James would throw out some soft calls every 15 minutes or so and scratch in the leaves a little. He gobbled back at us several times. Even gobbled several times on his own. Around 8;45 am James decided to ease back toward the truck and call and scratch around and that got him interested so he started closing the distance fast gobbling the whole way. We had a decoy out on the edge of the road and he came in strutting right to it. By 9 o clock he was flopping. It was like one minute from his last gobble until he strutted out in the road and died. 40 yard shot from a 3" Hevi Shot mag blend 5,6,7 hammered his ass. Game over. 19.2#, 9 7/8th beard and almost one inch spurs. Probably a suicide two year old but a big bird!

Thanks James for all your help this weekend bud One of the most exciting hunts Ive ever been on second only to the big bird I killed myself at Bouncys uncle LDs place.
