  • Little Brother Kills 1st Gobbler

    I desperately wanted to film my 14 year old brother's 1st turkey kill. We had a great youth day hunt the previous year that would have made good video even though James missed the gobbler. My dad and brother gave me some Eyecam glasses as a gift before the following youth day. My dad was new to turkey hunting but picked out a stumphole for us to sit in the morning of youth day. We roosted this gobbler, knowing he was a boss. After some light calling the morning of the hunt, the tom gobbled and flew down. I heard him spit to our left and gave James the queue to cock his shotgun. I had him wait until a shot would be presented. As I told my brother the day before, it's best to move when a strutter is facing away and he did just that. The gobbler ran in and whooped the decoy before getting wise to the impostor strutter. I gave the go ahead to shoot and he made a perfect shot! With 1 1/4' and a 10.5' beard the gobbler was a very impressive 1st harvest. I was so proud and honored to be a part of this hunt.

    Thanks Gobblintom!
    About the slate. I had played with that thing all year and it took me a while to realize that I struggled during the hunt because I was wearing gloves. Something I didn't do while practicing. Lol. I have since cut the fingers off of the gloves. The video took an hour to upload. Thought it would never finish! I'm glad you liked the video. It was the hunt of a lifetime for me and him both. I later called a 23lb. bird in for my dad (his 1st gobbler). It took 45 min. to bring him 300 yards. That was the day before I called up my 1st double-beard with 1.25' hooks. Another great hunt to never be forgotten. Not bragging. I just love to share and hear the success of others as well. God be with you in your future turkey adventures. It is also my passion more than anything else.
