13 space...you my friend are in Turkey Heaven. I grew up hunting the Salem area and man you got it made. I have killed many a turkey and deer in your neck of the woods. If interested shoot me a pm and I might could put you on a bird or 2 around your parts.

Turkey huntin is a few steps ahead of ducks for me. if i were only allowed to hunt one or the other then turkey it is.

yeah, there are tons of turkeys around here. i see them all the time, except when i am sitting in the woods with a shotgun. My dad and I ended shooting 2 jakes out at the same time. it was pretty cool considering it was my first turkey and i pulled off a double with my old man.Image

Very nice. My first bird was a jake. I doubt I'll ever get a rush like that regardless of the size of future gobblers. :thumbsup: Congrats and hopefully there are many more to come.
