Well, after many years of the turkeys making fun of me and teasing me, I finally got one. I stepped out on the deck of our house and heard them down below our house. I got my camo on and headed over the hill where I sat down behind some briars. I used my home made box call and got them to come my way. There were two jakes and a tom. I shot the tom at 18 yards. It weighed 17.5 pounds and had a 9.25 inch beard. 1 inch spurs.
