Here he is



Ain't gonna score real good but i'm not gonna complain. I really didn't think there was anything left at this spot after the one we were after yesterday got shot.
My Dad got sick of hunting in the bad weather, gave up and went home yesterday afternoon so i headed out alone this morn basically just to verify the one we were after was gone. Was cold, but a beautiful morning, sunny and calm. Never knew there was so many birds around, they were gobblin on the roost in all directions, but nothing close. This guy was roosted way back behind me somewhere and covered a lot of ground in a hurry to get to me. He came in behind me and on the wrong side, gobbled about 20 feet behind the popup, finally caught sight of him thru some thick stuff as he tried to circle around the dekes. Was only about a 12 yard shot but thru a lot of cover.
Shot in Michigan, 4-27, 6:30 a.m. Eastern, with the 870.
21 lbs, 8 inch beard and little bitty 5/8 inch spurs.
Oh, and i'm not stoned in this picture, just a bad case of pink eye i gotta thank my son for givin me!

Well, thought I was done, got all my crap put away. Just talked to my sister, my mom and niece are coming up this weeken and my niece has never been hunting in her life, but does has a Hunter safety card (she's 17 I think) and she's fired up about the idea of gettin a turkey!! So guess I'm lugging the blind back out Friday afternoon for a couple more mornin hunts! Gotta love turkey season! Here we go again!

Here is my bird. He was all fired up in the roost. He gobbled and strutted right in to my DSD setup. Strutted right past a hen to 23 yards way until I dusted him. 23.5 lbs, 9" beard, 3/4" spurs.

Score: 56.5
