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 4th for this spring

A very short hunt this morning here in PA. Started with passing up 2 jakes at 25 yards and then moved to another hollow where I called and had two gobblers answer but from two different directions, so Jim and I headed to the closes one got inside the woods and he gobbles about 50 yards away. The Briers were thicks so they covered us. We sat down I yelped and he answered so up with the gun and waited , 2 minutes of no calling or gobbling and I decided to yelp real soft and he comes running down the hill and a good thing because he walked past us while he was quiet and the soft yelps brought him back. It all took place in about 5 minutes...
25 yards and the 20 gauges marks up another
18 LB
9 in beard
7/8 spurs


this was the damage of the 20 gauge
