Tom down
« on: April 23, 2011, 08:24:41 PM »
Got my first turkey this morning, shot him about 10 AM at 30 yards. Called him in did it all by myself, I have to say it is probably the most exciting thing I have ever done hunting. 8 1/2 " beard. Shot him in an area not known to have many turkeys at all.

Sorry its only a yard shot, I didn't take the camera this morning because I had a feeling it was bad luck. Guess I was right.

Honestly guys it was soooo cool when he was coming in gobbling and strutting, I thought I was dreaming until I pulled the trigger.
