It was a nice day on April 1, 72 degrees and bluebird skies, no wind, and green fields all around. Those were the conditions when I took the first Longbeard of the year. He was a 2 yr. old at 19 lbs., 10" beard and 1" spurs. I saw him stuttin' with another longbeard in a hayfield as I was changin' positions. I put the sneak on him and using the rolling hay field I kept the top of his fan in sight as I crept closer. I guess the yardage to be 50+, and hving just got my new.660 kicks for my new 835 tactical, thanks Kenny, I lowered the boom on him. He didn't even flap a wing, just dropped like a stone, graveyard dead. About 20 birds took to the wing and 2 other bigger Gobblers I had'nt seen. When I check the yardage, at my stride, it showed approx. 65 yds. I didn't think it was that far, or I might tried to close it up a little. Not even a wing flapp. I'll be goin over to Enville Tn. when this weather gets itself straightened out, I hear thier hammerin good over there.
GOOD LUCK, GOD BLESS, AND STAY SAFE!
