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 A pair of 18 pounders.

Had a great hunt this morning, one of my best, My wife and I both tagged one, it was my 2nd of the season and I'm done for this year, my wife still has one tag left, so I will carry the camera for the hunts thats left this year. We watched them come in for about 400 to 500 yards across a field and the last 50 to 60 yards it was a race to the decoys, We let them strut around the decoys has long as we could but its hard to have them that close and hold off on the shot. Both of them where 18 lb'ers and sported 10" beards with 1" spurs. It would have been great to have the camera along this morning but a fellow can just carry so much LOL. Here's the picture. The kiddies are our great nephews and neice, they thought this was really something and of course they had to have some feathers LOL.
