    Well the spring turkey season is over for me!! I tagged TWO gobblers this evening, Man what a rush .If it was beginners luck I'll take it. I set up at 4;00 this afternoon and the birds started filtering into the trees at about 6;00 . Saw a few hens and two jakes then the first gobbler showed up .I gave him a couple cluck, purrs and before he was 20 yards away the second gobbler came running in. both HOT!! gobbling like mad,Took the longest beard then the other one waited a bit too long ,and got him with a second shot!! The biggest measured 8 1/2inches and the second 7 1/4 so a great seasons end for me.

    Unfortunately Katelyn had to miss out, she went this morning but Mom said she needed to stay home and help with the housework ,I wish she and Brian both would have been with me but maybe in the fall season.

    Congrats Richard, on the gobblers.I know you had fun. My oldest son took my 10 year old grandson out last Sunday and he shot his first turkey, man was he excited.

    You gotta savor those hunts brother, it doesn't happen like that often.
