Well. She said she wanted a gobbler for her birthday ... it was a pretty typical turkey hunt, 2 botched jobs with birds at less than 10 yards and somehow slipped the gun; tons of walking; couple of snakes. Then in the early afternoon I somehow called six birds across the river. I've heard of it happening, but having grown up on Eastern's, I'd have never believed it unless I saw it myself.
Got her into position to take a bird and this big ole Tom slipped up on us from behind. She pulled it off, and threaded a 3" magnum no. 4 loaded with lead through some of the thickest, nastiest stuff I've ever seen.
And what do you know ... he's got three beards. Not bad for her first bird ... !
- Really ... ? 3 ... ?
- That's a genuine happy lady right there ... !
