During the fall in Mass, you get a hen and tom permit. Anyone ever shoot a double? :gatgun:

I've called in several doubles but never actually killed 2 at once myself. I did however call in a nice double on Rios where I shot ! and my buddy shot the other. It was sort of the 1, 2, 3 boom kind of thing. It was his first turkey and my only Rio. I dont really see the point in me shooting 2 birds at the same time. I'd personally rather shoot the boss gobbler and if the other was a nice enough bird come back tomorrow and try to get him.

Last year I had a super nice Rio come in with 2 jakes. I don't shoot jakes anymore but was zoned in on this big tom & right when I pulled the trigger a jake walked behind the tom. Needless to say they both went down.

Only one bird a day in NC.

But called in two NICE gobblers a few years back while hunting with my brother-in-law. Did the 1-2-3 BOOM thing as well and both of us took birds. That was his first. A special moment to say the least. Did the turkey dance for at least 10 minutes :grooving:
