Got up at 3:45 in the blind ready to shoot by five turkey down at 6 AM

At work by 7:15

I will miss the watching of the turkeys but I will not miss getting up. And it had two beards I’ve never shot a bird with two beards before.

Roughly 1 inch spurs by the tape and he only weighed 17 pounds. The smallest Tom I ever shot was 16 pounds

I finally heard gobbling on Thursday morning when I let my dog out at 0500hrs so I gear up and I'm out the door at 0535hrs(legal shooting) heading into the woods behind my place where I heard the gobbling coming from. I guess between old age and wishful thinking I misjudged the distance of where the bird was , seems like he was back over on my nieghbours property and worst part is there is a lot of wet woods between us. Dang ! So I find a good spot to sit and start calling anyway.... ya never know , right ? The gobbling dies down but then a hen close by me starts chatting with me ... no , more like giving me shit for being in her woods and then she buggers off. That was the most action I've had since Day One.

Glad to hear somebodies getting action and it ain't over tills it's over..... May 31st 1900hrs.
