    We went out to my lease this morning. We had a group of 5 jakes come within about 15 yds. I blew a shot over the head of one and was so shocked, I forgot to reload and try again. My buddy picked off one of them though.

    About an hour later, we relocate near by and here come 4 jakes (minus one member! lol).

    The come within 40 yds. I take aim and bam. Down he goes. First Turkey! It had about a 4 inch beard and maybe 1/2 inch spurs.

    I was using my Remington 870 Express 12 gauge with a Super Full choke. I used Winchester Supreme High Velocity #5. I also used the HS Camo tape to camo up my 870. It worked great.

  2. Congrats... keep getting out their and you will get more of them.
