2013 Spring Turkey Season
I had a great turkey season opener this year and was thankful to do it with my 5yr old at my side! Our first set didn’t pan out so we picked up and moved to the other end of the property at about 7:30. We slowly moved down a field edge until I saw what I thought was a turkey head pop up and go back down to feed approx 150yrds out. We crawled up to the field edge and a few minutes later I saw the top of a fan about 200 yards out.
I began trying to work some magic on my slate call and the Tom liked what he heard! He had a hen feeding away from us so he worked in slowly, but he put on quite a show strutting and gobbling all the way. I finally put the hammer down at about 30 yards and that completed a great father/son memory that neither of us will soon forget!
