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 WHOPPER BLUE TURKEY WAS FULL STRUT ON THE ROOST *PIC*

Gang,

This big boy was gobbling hard and in full strut on the roost for 20 minutes before he flew down. I saw a hen in the tree nextto him, as well. He pitched down first and I gave 3 slight yelps and that was all it took. I shot him at 40 yds. He weighed 21 lbs, had a 9" beard and had 1 1/8" & 1 1/4"
spurs.

What I really liked about him was his irradesscence... usually it is a greenish copper, but this gobbler appears BLUE!!
