I put one down this morning. I made it a quick hunt. I haven't had time to scout AT ALL this year and haven't even heard a bird gobble this spring. I went to a woods that normally has birds and set up my She-Mobile in the dark. Crows and owls were making all kinds of racket, but not a single gobble. I decided to yelp a bit, then threw in a few cutts. After just a couple minutes, here he comes on a string to my decoy. He stopped at 40y and went into a half-strut and I was able to identify him as a gobbler. It was a jake, but I don't have much time to hunt this season and I wanted a tender one to roast anyway. I'm sure he would have come closer, but I wanted to see what the Hevi's would do to him. I putted a couple times and he raised his head. BANG/FLOP! It was over at 6:10.

I have a herniated disc in my lower back and just walking is very painful and difficult. To say that getting my bird to the truck was awful would be an understatement. But, I got the job done. I plucked it for the oven and he had over a dozen hits in his neck and I didn't even try to find all the ones in his head. Only 1 or 2 in the breast. I love the Hevi's with my Indian Creek.

I wasn't able to weigh him so I got the standard 20 points for shooting a jake. I get to hunt again the last weekend of the month, so maybe I'll drop a tom for us next time.

Photos will follow.

Thanks Huntnma. Here's a picture. He decided to flail around in a mudhole for awhile when I shot him. Doesn't make for a very pretty picture.

Way to go Buckhound! Sorry I didn't get to you sooner. I have been out of commission for the last couple of weeks due to a back injury (must have been from carrying that giant bird I shot ) Well, I just had lower back surgery Wednesday but I am back home and now I see that you put some points on the board for us. Good shooting.

Here's the deal. I have a pile of 2011 Spring Turkey Contest stickers in front of me, but only 3 mailing addresses. I have addy's for Eric96, nick_bleuer, and Buckhound and I will be mailing those out shortly. If the rest of you want a sticker, PM your mailing address to me and I will put them in the mail for you. I'll shoot you a PM as a last reminder. If you don't want one, that's fine. I'll stick them all over my gun cabinet
