Left last Sat. and the season opened Monday did a little fishin' and scoutin' till the opener! We had a pretty good trip I killed the biggest bird of my life a 22 pound, 10" beard, 7/8" spurs. Austin shot a 19 pounder with a nice beard also. We caught about 8 or so Largemouth Bass out of farm ponds. I should've killed my 1st bird with my new Ruger .22 WMR but I left it in camp feeling that most folk appreciate the callin' aspect of getting a Big Tom in close. I'm entered in a contest on a local forum and just felt it'd look better done with a shotgun. I called him in from over 100 yards away when I first saw him to 42 yards (lasered after the shot) when a load of #4 Heavy Shot from my Browning 12 ga. dropped him like a bad habit. I think I would've enjoyed taking him with the rifle more, cause once he was under 50 yards with the 3.5" 12 he was mine. Here's Austin and his gobbler! Me and my bass the one went 18" not bad for an extra bonus on a turkey hunt! Chuck Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
