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 Gobbler down!

Mondaymorning went out and heard nothing for an hour and a half. My cousin and I eventually saw some moving in the woods so we gave them a jake gobble. Instead we heard a gobble from the other direction. The turkeys in the woods meandered around and slowly came in, it was 3 jakes. We passed, but after thinking about it for a few minutes we decided to try to call them back so we could get the hunt on video. We gobbled again, but the gobble from the other direction was A LOT closer. I turned around just in time to see two toms come out of a fence row over a 100 yards away and break into a dead sprint when they saw our B-mobile. We turned a full 180 degrees and my cousin had to lean around the tree. We got turned around just as they arrived at 15 yards, I shot and dropped mine, then my cousin dropped the camera, grabbed his gun and dropped his tom as it was flogging mine! What an awesome hunt! My tom had a 10 inch beard with 7/8 in. spurs and my cousins had an 11 inch beard with 1 1/4 inch spurs. It was cool to see the hunt unfold and to have patience to wait it out! So I am done for the year, what a short ending to such a fun season.[/align][/align]http://i282.photobucket.com/albums/kk258/tylermulvany/DSCF1186.jpg[/align][/align]http://i282.photobucket.com/albums/kk258/tylermulvany/DSC00032.jpg[/align][/align]My bird's on the left.[/align]
