It's always fun to have your Son call for reinforcements after playing cat and mouse with the birds a few times. Even better when the old man delivers. :giggle: Came on a string right up the gun barrel just like they are supposed to do it. Great weather and great morning with my Son.
Bird was around 43 yards, but would have come closer if he would have let it. :rolleyes: Impatient youths! Bird had some beard rot, but thick beard around 7" with a 1 1/8" spur and a broken 1" spur. It just doesn't get any better!

Text book hunt. Lot of gobbling on ground and a very vocal hen. Got between the two. Was able to spook her opposite direction.

Two days in a row I've had pleasure of hunting with my son. Don't happen often because most of time we are taking other hunters. Had my little youth buddy on plans to hunt this morning but she backed out on me.

2nd day of season. Again perfect plan, knew where he lived. Called to him, about 15 gobbles and dead about 6:35 am. I don't think I made it to sunrise on either hunt. Posted this turkey to the prior post in error.

Had a hen take away first bird. Heard this bird couple times while working first. Located about 8:00 with crow call. Two birds came in. Could've doubled but saving my last tag for next week.
