First Turkeys of the Season

Postby orangefoot » Fri Mar 21, 2008 8:22 am

Heres the turkeys (2 jakes) we killed this morning. Setup on the edge of a field before daylight heard a few turkeys gobbling then these gobbled 1 time and they were right on top of us. They kept coming until they got about 30 yards from us then we dusted em. :thumbsup:

My papaws first turkey hunt and first turkey.

From the looks and the location, I'd say they were a fine young pair of easterns. :thumbsup:

So, dude, how are you guys going to "fix dem birds". Will it be a Sunday dinner?, deep fried? Also, what are you going to do with the "outside" of you bird...other than pictures. Will you save the feet, tail, make wingbones out of the wings???? Details, we need details :huh:

You want more details? I also found out after further inspection that one of them seems to be double bearded. :eek:
Does it look like it to you? Sorry the picture quality is really bad.

Congrats, did you sneak up on them while they were playing basketball or did you have to call a little. :lol:
