First E week bird down

First E week bird down

Unread postby FallGuy » Sat May 06, 2017 8:08 pm

Got him last Saturday. Was an awesome hunt called them in from a long ways off. First time getting them to respond I could barely hear them gobbling. Took what seemed like an eternity but was about 45 minutes, they were very interested but they were hened up pretty good. Finally three toms broke lose and closed the distance.

19.5 pounds, 1.0"/1.125" spurs, 9.25 beard

Thanks Jay. Got the go ahead from the wife to get him mounted. Was going to get Wayne to do it in a 3/4 strut because of his tail being busted up. I decided the next bird will be done, just hope there is a next one. ;)
