Good Friday Gobbler

Reply
Finally got him! After chasing turkeys for six hunts and missing one last week, I was finally able to take a nice bird on Good Friday. The bird weighted 16 lbs. had a 9 1/2 inch beard and 1" spurs. This was a mature bird for the piney woods around Folsom. After hearing him gobble all morning, a made a move closer to him at about 7:45 and put out a decoy in front of me in a clearcut with a pasture to my back and then made a few sweet love calls. At around 8:00 I looked back in the pasture and there he is with a hen - IN THE ACT (if you know what I mean). I had to wait for them to take a break so that I could get a clear shot on the tom. What a way to go!

it was very polite to allow him to finish his business and keep the gene pool going strong lol
