Special jake

5 posts in this topic

Was able to take my 5 yr old son out during the B season.We had alot turkeys gobbling on the roost mon,tues. and thurs. mornings.We had 6 jakes in our dekes on mon. and tues. morn.We saw one tom on tues. morn.He got to within 40 yds. of us figured something out and took of running too much brush in way.On thurs morn my brother and son were with,we headed to one of my brother spots.Alot of gobbling on the roost,they flew down and were still gobbling.It was looking good.then they got to the creek and instead of jumping over they decided to follow it away from us.We decided to move closer.We got set up,heard a gobble, game on.We started calling,about 10 min. later we spotted 2 white heads comming through the woods.2 jakes saw the dekes and came in running.They were strutting around the jake deke putting on a great show.We watched them for a minute,BOOM one on the ground,15 yds away.Not my biggest but for sure a special turkey for my son and I.It was a hunt he and I will never forget!Good luck to everyone.

I'd take a jake with one of my kids along over a tom by myself anyday! Congrats, and nice job on making the extra effort it takes to get your son out there with you!
