Default SW Va bird down

My buddy and I just got back from our annual weel long trip throughout VA. The only thing taken was this bird in Montgomery County. It was a very tough week as the birds didn't talk much. We did see quite a few birds but most of them were on neighboring properties. This bird was shot at 8am and came in to the decoys completely silent. I was lucky to get him because my gun was against the tree and I was on my blackberry goofing off. I just happened to look up and see him in full strut heading towards my full body tom decoy at 25 yds. He weighed 23 lbs, 9 1/2" beard, and spurs were 1 2/8" and 1 3/8". Biggest spurs I have ever had on a turkey. It was still a great week to get away and chase them around.
