48 and took my first last Saturday

Postby luvthebow » April 4th, 2013, 8:18 pm

Left the truck at 5:45 my son made several locator calls but no luck made our way up the mountain almost to the point where we had plan to set up when an owl gave a hoot and they went to hammering maybe 75 yards from our location from three different areas we managed to set up decoys and blind within 15 min they were leaving the roost and in min. We had six toms coming in to the decoys with at least two to three more hammering behind us. When all was said and done by 6:50 I had a 21.5 lb 9" beard with 3/4 spurs on the ground. The property was property my dad hunted on when he was a boy, this is the first year I've got to hunt it. Never taken a deer my first big game was a turkey thank G-D for the OPPERTUNITY

Congratulations on harvesting your first turkey! Sounds like you had a heck of a morning with your son.
