How's my Turkey measure up?

I shot my first turkey today. 23.7 lbs and a 9 1/2" beard. I put the pics in my photo album. Check 'em out.


In a while, Chet.

That's a beauty Never been turkey hunting, had many under my stand during deer season but one move and there gone.

From what I hear its a hard animal to hunt.

Nice job

Steve

I've got him on video too. I just need to get my disc of the hunt, and I'll post that too. He came in after about 45 minutes of calling. Looked right into our blind, and just kept coming. Head shot. I think I got very lucky.


In a while, Chet.

Great looking bird. We only have a few birds up here. They were introduced about 10 years ago. They haven't survived to well as the population has not skyrocketed. Coyotes and poaching has only added to the cold winter weather problems.

We "fed" them all winter - there was a flock of 14 here scrounging under the bird feeders - the biggest tom was huge - my guess in the 30 pound range.
