Filled Tag

Scored this morning on a nice gobbler. He weighed 19.2 lbs, 10 1/2 " beard and 1" spur. The other spur was worn down. Got him right off the roost. I watched them roost last night and went in this morning in the dark. I got too close because they were almost pooping on me! One gobbler spotted me towards daylight and flew off. I stayed put and didn't move. The first one flew down and I tried to shoot but had a tree in the way. I moved to the right of the tree but couldn't see him. Then I moved left of the tree and he saw me and tried to run and then that's when I let the 870 bark! Was about a 40 yard shot. Very happy to fill the tag on the last day. Now I'm in the treestand waiting on Mr. Big. Good luck to all still turkey and deer hunting!

A bad day in the woods is better than a good day at work!
