    They are keeping Daddy busy in the turkey woods,,, But I wouldn't have it any other way. I love this stuff! Was able to get Landon on a couple of birds Tuesday afternoon. Had one close a couple of times but Landon couldn't get a good shot due to being so dang short. Finally was able to get this bird to see the fan and he came running. He stopped at about 30 yards and it was game over. 26.5lbs, 12" beard and 1-1/16 sharp hooked spurs.

    I took off work yesterday and my brother and I hunted together with no luck. Just seemed like an odd morning with zero roost gobbling at daylight. I got home and I asked my wife if she wanted to go fishing since it was a beautiful day and the birds weren't gobbling. She said she really wanted to go turkey hunting but couldn't hunt but a couple of hours. I told her to get ready. We immediately had a bird gobbling at the first call after setting the blind and the decoys up in the edge of a field. I literally made 3 calls to this bird and he struts into the field at 30 yards. He makes his way towards the decoy and stops about 25 yards from them. As soon as he stopped, she flattened him. To say this girl was excited would be an understatement! Shortest hunt of the year and it absolutely made her day! So happy for her! I love mid-day hunts.
    23.5lbs 11-1/4 beard 1-1/8 spurs. Her best bird to date.
