    I got settled in my blind last Thursday evening at 5:00 pm. I was doing some calling on the slate call about every 15 minutes. He came out in the field a little after 5:40 pm and I killed him at 5:55 pm. It was 2 turkeys, him and a jake that came out together from the woods. They slowly worked their way across the hayfield to the part where I was hunting which is about 1/2 acre that is plowed. This is my first year using a full strut tom decoy and he came right to it, it was awesome! He was totally locked in on that decoy which was 11 yards from me. On my first shot, I shot through my blind and I couldn't hardly believe that had just happened but to my surprise, he didn't spook and I was able to nock a second arrow and pull the shot off. He flew off a good ways but I knew about where he went down because I know this piece of property real well and I basically walked right to him. This is my 2nd bow-kill of the season and this is my first time ever tagging out and it is also my first kill on camera!
