Default My first 2017 Kentucky Gobbler

I finally filled my first turkey tag of the 2017 spring turkey season here in Kentucky. It was a rainy day, so I opted to hunt from a box blind I built last year. Two jakes showed up first to my calls, then a lone hen, followed by two mature gobblers.

My bird had a 10 5/8 inch beard and 1 1/4 inch spurs.



Here is the video of the hunt:

Good Deal. I use to hunt just outside of Hopkinsville. Best turkey hunting I've ever been a part of

Pretty much anywhere in the Western and Central part of the state holds good numbers of birds. There are a lot of mountain birds too, but not the huge flocks you see in the Western end of the state usually.
