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

Success at last!

Default Success at last!

this mornin after not hearing a gobble,we were driving back on the ranger when two longbeards jumped out of the longrass and started running away....I jumped out and started chasing one of them and after about one hundred yards i got to within 45 yards of the big tom.One shot from my 3 and 1/2 mags was all it took to bring the big fella down on the run..he weighed 24 lbs with a 9 and 1/4 inch beard and 1 and 1 1/8 inch spurs

So wait, you chased down your turkey on foot while carrying your gun and presumably some gear?

You sir, are the man.

Congrats, and I hope I don't ever have to run from you.
