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 turkeys, Double!

Hey guys, My girlfriend and I went out this morning and tried our hand at turkey hunting. She had never been turkey hunting before and I've hunted several years with no success. I did a lot of scouting on a farm I just acquired permission for and found there were a few turkeys on it. About 6 15 am we located a tom on the roost and slipped within 100 yards downhill and called him in to the decoys. Kellie made a great shot and he went right down. I got the whole hunt on film and when we were out taking pictures where it laid we heard 2 more turkeys gobble about 80 yards up in the woods so we grabbed her tom and ran back to where we were sitting. I traded her the camera for the gun and called in 5 jakes. They gobbled and came right into the decoys and when the jake with the longest looking beard (no such thing as a long beard on a jake haha) came in I dropped him, also on camera. We were both super pumped to get our first turkeys, and have it be a double on film! Just thought I'd share. Her turkey had a 9 3/4 inch beard and about 1" spurs. Mine had a 4" beard. Cant wait to try to fill my other tag soon!

Congrats to you and your girlfriend squirrelly! I use paint some times to downsize the pics and then post them.. Maybe what it is or the fact this web page gives me a headache to get on at times. Also real slow..
