This is the bird I called in for my buddy this morning. He saw the decoy at 80 yards and hung up. It took at least twenty minutes of soft clucks and purrs to close to thirty yards where he made the sh

So proud of my 93 year old dad.  It's getting tougher and tougher just getting him out there, but he still knows what to do once there.    

Myself and my 9yo on his first turkey hunt.  He decided Wednesday he wanted to try turkey hunting.  He has never showed much interest in hunting before.  Needless to say I think he is hooked!  Oh and

I had that as well this spring, Brian.  Had a bird strutting, nice full fan but a short beard.  We did shoot it so I dont know what the spurs were like.

 

Nice job the hunt again this year, congrats.

Awesome season for you two.  Sometimes turkeys don't always look like they should.  Based on the beard and spurs together I'd guess a Jake.  But it really doesn't matter.  Nice bird with a recurve to boot!

MN was tough this year.  I managed to stay on birds by walking a lot of miles, but had a hard time getting in close enough for a shot as most would not cross fences or leave hens...  Ultimately I had to belly crawl up on this guy when he would not leave his little patch of ground above me for over an hour gobbling and drumming within 50yd the whole time.

Good work guys!   MN turkeys have shamed and humiliated me all season! I've got a couple more trips out,  but them im simply going to quit. I'm nothing if not persistent,  but this year has been a constant beating of my head on a brick wall.  Im not a quick learner,  but even I may know when to say enough is enough this time.

I think I am done for the year.  Wisconsin was a success for me these past few days, but not so much for the rookies I took with.    I called in a nice 24lb bird with 1" sharp spurs and 10" beard on Friday.  The weather really shut them down after that.  Finally Sunday morning in the rain showers they came out and put on a show for four hours, but the big tom just would not come in close enough for a shot.  Hens dragged him by me one time with a few second opportunity to decide if I should try to stretch the range of my gun, but I held off thinking they would come a few steps further...  They did not...  He had spurs easily over 1", never gobbled, just strutted and drummed around the field all morning.
