    I posted earlier about opening day and am new to the board but not to turkey hunting. Wanted to share some photo's if they come out ok. Posted a photo of her opening day bird, but it was fuzzy, it looked great on my phone. First let me explain that my wife is very passionate about turkeys (hunting, management, etc) not to mention she has a horse shoe when it comes to the hunting part. She will not tell anyone, but I will, she holds the state record for the highest scoring turkey taken in NC by a female and 4th by a female in the nation. Her first bird was a bearded hen with a 9' beard, and her first tom sported a 12 1/4' beard and 1 5/8' spurs and weighed around 22lbs, we never scored that bird but should have. I have taken my share of gobblers, but enjoy bragging on her and if she found out I was doing so she would have my hide. Her record bird had a total of 7 beards shortest was 3 1/4' and longest was 10 1/2'. She manages to get her limit every year and harvested her first solo bird last year (another monster 11 1/2' beard 1 1/4' spurs). Here are some photos of the last few birds she has taken including the big one.

    You've got something special there in the form of a female hunter. Let's hope she keeps on taking trophy toms.

    This is truely my favorite season of all because it is one we started together, I deer and duck hunted before meeting her, but not turkeys. We started turkey hunting when our county first got it's season and rarely do we turkey hunt without one another. She still likes to deer and duck hunt and go offshore with me, but if you ask her, turkey hunting is her passion. Yes, I am truely blessed to have her, someone who understands the love for the outdoors. As far as her killing the big ones, you got that right. She has harvested the largest buck (weight & horns) out of our family, the largest turkeys. If you can get your wife, girlfriend, etc in the woods, I promise you will not regret it and you even will get more time with them and more time in the woods.
