Nice job, Mark.  Still looking for my fall bird.  Taking the xbow with me from now on.  Chasing turkey yesterday when a doe came very close.

Congrats!!! I'm proud of any bird I shoot. Every fall I want a long beard but I can never pass up young of the year poults. Eveyone was giveing me a hard time of how small my jenny was this year, but I was as proud as if it were a long beard. Scattering them and calling them back in is the best! I can't wait until April!!!
Fall turkey hunting is boring?! Have fun sitting in your deer stand....

mcvitullo -let em laugh all they want, when you sit down to eat that young bird you'll be doing the grinning. Those young birds just can not be beat for table fare.  I may just make it down to Ky for the December season after all, so I may get one more chance too.

Good luck Mark if you take someone this weekend. I was just getting the hankering myself and thinking about calling a guy I know has a tag and invite him for a hunt.

I saw something new today. I took my main buddy turkey hunting today since he still had an open tag. We had to hunt about two hours to find birds and then he only had a few minutes to hang with them. So we put the dog on them and he busted them real good. One bird come flying right by us and Joe, being short on time, took her or it off the wing. It was a nice size bird and when he came carrying it back I said it looks like a nice hen. His reply was I think it's a gobbler.....I went ummm you should know a gobbler( this is not his first rodeo). He laid it down and said you tell me. It had buff breast feathers and a jet black back with bronze tail feathers, a skin covered head with full waddles and skull cap, and razor sharp spurs about 1/2 to 3/4 inch long. It looked like a gobbler, but also like a hen. I'm guessing it was a hermaphrodite ( an animal exhibiting both male and female traits). I have never seen this in turkeys. So I guess you call it a gobblette.
