2008 NC turkey

Postby diverhunter73 » Fri Apr 18, 2008 7:07 am

Hey guy's, I took this turkey this past wednesday. He had 9 1/4" beard and 1 1/8" spurs....He saw my king strut decoy and he wanted to fight.. It was a pretty site. If you don't have a full strut decoy, you need to try one..They work, i have killed several birds over one...It will get that boss gobbler fired up and they will come running in.

Nice bird Diver, looks like you put the :hammer: on him. I do not use the full strut deks but have had many birds march in to my jake, it's a thrill to watch them do their thing :wink: I hear those deks do work very well though! Again, congrads, gotta love it when "the plan " comes together.....

Congratulations on a fine looking bird.
I have tried a full strut decoy this year and have had mixed results so the vertic is still out but I`ll let you know what I think after the season
