1 day prior to the very first time I had ever turkey hunted I got a call at the office from my neighbor, she knew I had wanted to go turkey hunting and that I had planned on going.
She called to tell me that her sister had seen a flock of 30 or more in the feild behind her house and that I was welcome to go over there and hunt if I wanted to.
It was Friday and the season started the next day, I had already picked out an area I was going to hunt but thought I would ride over at lunch time to look at this feild.
I had on a white dress shirt and tie, but was just going to look the area over. I got there and walked through the feild to the edge of the woodline and seen that there was a ton of acorns laying on the ground, so I walked up maybe 20 yards and looked around...I then noticed something moving and there not 30 yards from me was a tom in full strut.
I jumped behind a tree, my heart was pounding and I was thinking to myself wow those guys on the hunting shows said turkeys could see good lol.
I decided to go back there the next morning and needless to say I shot my first gobbler 15 minutes after sunrise. He is mounted in full strut at the house, 28 lbs, 11.5 in beard and 1.25 in spurs and I coulda killed him in a suit and tie!
Matching camo don't matter
