Fall Gobbler #2 down

Postby eggshell » October 26th, 2009, 3:14 pm

Hello everyone,

Just got home from a three day hunt in Ky. I wasn't sure how much hunting I could do, as I struggle climbing even a simple hill. But I figured I'd hunt some valley log roads and be a cheerleader for my buddies. Well my local friend down there took me to an area with some rolling fields and a couple old log roads to walk. In one of them we caught a group of last spring's Jakes in the field and we were able to get into the woods behind them. A couple hard gobblers clucks followed with a pair of course yelps and they broke and run right into 20 yards from us. I picked out the biggest to shoot, but he stopped behind a tree then all of a sudden spooked and flew, so I pulled over on the next clear bird and dropped him(in my condition I wasn't about to be picky).

I have had a good year, that makes 6 gobblers in two states for me in 2009. I got one more gun tag left for Ky and I'll probably go down for the December season and try to fill it, but I can't shoot anymore gobblers. so a nice plump poult would be in trouble.

Attached is a picture.

PS The beer can is not mine, i never noticed it untl now...LOL

Congrats on the fall hunt in KY. I hunt KY. We are fortunate to have the KDFWR. Their work on the restoration of the wild turkey as well as elk and many other species of huntable game is 2nd to none.
Congrats again on the bird. Well, I'm going to let the birds work me this morning in the rain. LOL

Congratulations eggshell.  I see that you were able to celebrate with a little Natty Lite afterwards.
 
Here is a link to a very easy way to resize you pictures.
