2011 Turkey Season off to a Great Start!!

Postby SJohnson » Mon Apr 18, 2011 8:51 am

Hit the woods this morning about 5:45 and got setup roughly 100 yards from the roost of 3-4 Gobbling Toms... A few soft clucks from Bohuntr22 and they were in route!! Wasn't long and a nice Gobbler was looking down the wrong end of the Ole Browning Gold...!! Its nice when it all comes together...

Got one in the book on Saturday:

He had a couple tail feathers broken off, musta been a scrapper!!

10 3/4" Beard
1 3/8" Spurs
25 lbs

Shot him with my great, great grandfathers Winchester Model 12 12 gauge, not bad for a 95 year old gun, check it out in the picture.

off to try to bag number two this week.
