Spring Turkey

I don't recall seeing anyone post any spring gobbler hunts so far, will here's mine. A nice 19lbs osceola tom.

Spurs are about 1" long and I haven't measured the beard yet. I called this one on a box caller from a distance of 200yards.

It's turkey season here too. Unfortunately I haven't seen or heard a bird in a while. The only big bird making any noise lately are a couple owls that refuse to keep quiet.

How do you guys get rid of these pesky birds
Hunting, Fishing & Camping

I sometimes use my cat.
Hunting, Fishing & Camping

They eventually run away and hang out just over my hill.
Hunting, Fishing & Camping


Sometimes all the locals get together and head to some type of party.
Hunting, Fishing & Camping

They asked my neighbor to go but he didn't answer the door.

Hunting, Fishing & Camping

Sorry guys. Just havin a little fun. If I actually started hunting these birds, I'd probably never see another one. Good luck to you hunters.

turkeys

Yeah, they try bumming rides from me too.

Hunting, Fishing & Camping

Sometimes they bathe in the dust.

Or just hang out on a backyard fence.

This one saw his reflection in my old Ranger bumper and took offense.

I have too much time on my hands.

Gah, can't wait. Son and I are heading up to Vermont next weekend... the only time we can get out in the woods this spring. I haven't turkey hunted before, so it should be humorous. We've got a couple calls and plenty of tips from friends!
