Our Blessed Day 2 And 3
Posted 18 March 2010 - 08:49 AM
Day 2 was my Buddy's turn to knock down two gobblers and both of these were MASSIVE!
19lbs 1-5/16" spurs 10 1/2" beard; 17lbs 1-1/8" spurs 11 3/4" beard!!!
Two absolute whoppers!
I heard one gobble way off the property I was hunting and couldn't find anything.
Day 3 was my turn.
It started off slow but by 9am things started to heat up. I spotted a group of hens enter a field with two groups of gobblers flanking them. I called and called. Marathon calling! Finally at 10am two of the gobblers peeled off the group and appeared to be heading my way. They entered the woods and I lost sight of them. I keep calling. At 10:30am one of them pops out of the woods and commits to coming in.
He gets nervous but it's too late.
Down for the count.
Another great lowcountry gobbler!
18lbs, 7/8" spurs, 9-1/2" beard.
Wow what a season we are being blessed with this year! I am so thankful!!!

Remember the Ark was built by amateurs, the titanic by professionals.

Wow Leo you are really wacking and stacking. Is the one you got some sort of hybred? I ask because two turkeys I shot in Kansas were marked similar with the ends of the tail feathers like yours colored an off white. A game protecter there in Kansas said most likely those were a cross between eastern and Merriams as Kansas has both.
Good eyes. Many of our birds are eastern/osceola hybrids.
