    well well well. never thought id get it done, but this morning was cool as hell. i told myself at before the season i wont gonna shoot a jake, but after a few weeks of frustration an gettin used to this whole turkey thing, i caved. got set up on the edge of a field this mornin around 5 45. at round 6 or so heard what i thought was a helicopter, looked up an theres a hen flyin into the field. an mannn she was up there, aint realize them big ol birds could fly like that. after sittin there freezin my tail off til about 8 an not seein nothin i had to move. i went all the way acrossed the farm, set up, called, NOTHIN. around 9 i started makin my way back to the truck. on the way i had to go right by the field i sat this mornin. an wouldnt ya know it. 3 turkeys in it. i crawled to the nearest turkey an got still. they were about 200 yards from me an headin straight away. slipped out my Spursader an done a little callin a here they come. luckily the biggest of the 3 was the first to make it to me. threw up the ol benelli an rolled ol Jake and his noggin down the hill. Preciate it GT for the call an gettin me into this whole turkey thing.

You tore that head up!!!!! Jakes a Legal Bird so I'll let ya slide this time lol but alot of people will bust a Jake in a second but not me...BUT...If It was at this stage of the game and that's all I seen well.......LOL They eat the same!!!
