Good season so far

Postby Ringneck » Fri Apr 13, 2012 2:56 pm

Managed to get out and hunt 2 morning and 2 afternoons so far and kill 2 birds.

Here's #1 with a before and after pic. He weighed 18 lbs, 11 inch beard, and 1 5/16" spurs. Took him at 5 pm one afternoon.

Went downhill a little with bird #2. Worked him in across and open field. With all the coaxing I had to do I went ahead and shot him even though he was a younger bird.

He had a 8 3/4" beard, 1 inch spurs, forgot to weigh him but he was roughly 18-19 lbs.

So far I'm tickled with the season. Only need one more to have the seaosn limit.

It's been fun. This is my first season hunting turkeys in 15 years. I should have started back sooner....I forgot how much fun it actually was :thumbsup:
