My First Turkey

Discussion in 'Upland Game and Hunting Dogs' started by RHiller, Apr 21, 2005.

  1. 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.

  5. Not real sure how much the jakes weighed, but I'd guess 12 - 15 #.
  6. Nice job on the bird,and the fact you got him with your own home made box call makes it even better.
