2017 Kentucky Youth Hunt

Unread postby Spitfire-Spurs » Sun Apr 16, 2017 8:52 pm

A little late getting this up on the site. Old Dead-Eye put the smack down on a nice Ky Gobbler on Saturday 4/1, the first evening of the Youth Hunt. The bird came in full throttle and mad as hell looking for some trouble.

Colin laid him out flat less than forty yards from where last year’s bird bought the farm. I captured the action on video and Colin is working on putting something together like he did with the last one.

The big old Tom weighed 20.6 lbs, had just over a 9 inch beard and sported a 7/8 inch left spur and a 13/16 inch right spur.

Congratulations! Nice bird. Your video pictures really show how impressive that tom was at the decoy. He put on a show! Makes you wish you were there to watch it all firsthand. Very nice.
