March 16 1st turkey of the season

Postby 1Morgan » March 16th, 2013, 3:18 pm

Filled my first tag this morning. Today was the 2nd day of the season here in SC. Birds gobbled all day yesterday, but were very tight first thing today. I was walking to my second setup and heard this bird gobbling before I stepped off the road. I slipped in about 20 yards and sat down. I yelped and cut a few times. He gobbled sporadically, so I just clucked and purred. After just a few minutes, I caught movement to my left. I thought it was a bobcat at first, he was plained out stalking his way in. The he stood upright, showed me his beard, went into half strut a few times. The he walked right in front of my gun barrel at 35 yards. The whole thing didn't take 10 minutes. I was alone so I only got a couple of pics. 4 more tags and 5 weeks to go!!

Oh yeah, GO TEAM 1!!!
