opening day

Postby caleb » Fri Mar 30, 2007 6:02 pm

11" beard - 1" spurs - 24#'s

I called up 3 gobblers within about 10 yards and hens at 5 feet. All 3 gobblers were going crazy, gobbling at every noise they heard. Crows, songbirds, cranes and each other. The biggest of the three went into full strut a number of times while in view. He finnaly walked into my shooting lane after I had been sitting up right with the gun to my sholder for about 10 minutes(I never realized how heavy a shotgun was until then), and I had a clear shot at his head and neck. He went right down after the 3.5" #4 did its job. Absolutely the most memorable turkey hunt of my life. Not the biggest bird I have killed but definitely the most memorable.

Snipeshooter,
Your duck will be done soon. Ill let you know.

I killed him in deland. I have a friend that owns some land out off 44. Theres a bunch of birds over there. The one he killed two days later was excatly the same size as mine. I think the hens are starting to lay eggs now because the gobblers are starting to get more active in the past few days. were going to try agian tomorrow.

I gotta admit.... I'm jelous! I have only killed easterns up north. I'm still waiting on my osceola. And when I get him he's going on the wall. Maybe you will do the taxidermy work on him for me. I'm still hunting him though.
