Well everyone the Turkey Terrors had a challenging year for the 2018 Spring Turkey Season. Both myself and hoythunter lost time in the woods due to surgeries. Dead-Eye was a little challenged with a scope mount that was knocked out of placed on his Kentucky hunt that he won at the Tri-County Longbeards youth hunt in 2017, he missed a real nice Longbeard on that hunt and then again on youth day in NJ. We didn’t realize until after the second miss that the scope mount had been knock out of place. We got his gun sighted back in, but he did not have another opportunity at a bird.

All that being said, I thought the second bird I harvest this year deserved to be put up here on the contest board. He was one of a pair of beautiful mature Toms I called in with the help of my Avian X strutter / real tail fan combo. From the moment that the two Toms first got a look at the decoys they were really hooked, they left the hens they were following and came right in gobbling and strutting up a storm. Even after I shot the one, the second bird which had started to run off, turned back to attack his former rival. After pecking the hell out of the dying Tom, the second Longbeard turned his attention back to the decoys.
