Turkey Hunting Whether it's spring or fall doesn't matter to this bunch. Great tips on calling, bustin flocks, using blinds and more.

Default First longbeard

This is my and my brothers first turkeys. Mine on the left had an 8" beard and a second 3" beard. I dont know how much it weighed. My spurs were an inch long. My brothers turkey on the left had a very thick beard and was about 8 1/2" long. His spurs were about 1/4. They both had really nice fans. Hope you like um.[align=left] [/align]

We were sitting along a fence line and my uncle called and 3 birds came out. They were about 10 feet away from my brother and starring at him and he had his gun down. So took a shot at the first one and dropped him dead. My brother quickly took the second, and my uncle did not shoot at the 3rd turkey.(which was the biggest,which I did not have a shot at, if I waited any longer they would have walked right on top of my brother, and know one would be able to shoot)
