Well guys, my turkey hunt started this past Monday... Im working 3rd shift right now so Im out looking for long beards about 2 hours too late. Monday I saw 6 different gobblers between 8 & 11 a.m., but I was always too late or in the wrong spot to set up on any of them... so I decided to try a different approach for Tuesday mornings hunt. On Tuesday morning I took 6 of my decoys & set them up in a field which has always been a good crossing spot... I was all set up by 8:15 am & was happy to find that there were no turkeys already there. I decided I was going to stay there till at least 1:30 pm before picking up shop & heading home to bed. At about 9:45 am a lone hen entered the field heading my way about 200 yards out... when she was at around the 60-yard mark I caught movement to my right... a nice tom in full strut at 84-yards! (Laser range finder. ) As I was working on positioning myself for a shot in that direction 7 hens & 1 more nice tom came into view from the same direction... SWEET! The toms stayed off to the right, out of range, in full strut, but I knew it was just a matter of time before they made some kind of move as all 8 hens were interested in what my 6 decoys were doing & coming right in. It looked for just a bit that both gobblers might pass out in front just out of my shotguns range, but a few minutes later the larger of the 2 toms tucked it all back in & hot footed it into 24-yards where I gave him a full dose of 3" #4 Hevi-Shot... he dropped right there! He ended up having a 11-1/4" beard, 1" spurs & weighed in at 23-1/2 lbs. Here are the mandatory pictures: Good luck to all you turkey hunters!
