Great first kill experience! I was alone on a friends property and decided to make a mid day hunt. I had spooked a bird after a long wait from a morning gobble on the opener. He walked right up on a buddy and me without a peep. So Saturday at noon I went back to same spot, found a better vantage point of where I thought he came from. I gave a couple putts, then yelped and he gobbled! I shut up! I putted and purred once within 20 minutes, and all the sudden I saw his head coming up the logging road from the bottom. He got within 25 yards and started strutting and drumming and gave me a good shot! Great hunt, first turkey finally. This is season 4 for me and I’m totally hooked.
