  • Another Blessed and Safe Turkey Season

    Well it was another great season this year again!! I was able to harvest my first gobbler of the season on opening morning. It was a nice 2 year old with a 9 3/4 inch beard, 19 3/4 lbs. and about 3/4 inch spurs!! He came in strutting!

    On opening Monday, me and my bro n law went hunting in hope that he could get one. Well after a long morning, a huge gobbler came in to our set up and at 30 yds he smoked him. So after we got his turkey back to the truck, we set out to get my 2 nd one. It was a short wait and I was able to fill my tag with a nice double beard. But the bad part is I blew most of the beards off. But oh well, it was a fun hunt. 11 1/4 inch and a blew into 3 inch beard, 20 1/2 lbs and 1 1/4 inch spurs!

    Praise Jesus for another blessed and safe season! Congrats to all who had a good year!!

    great season
    Glad you had another great season.You are one person that I had no doubt would tag out.You got a couple really nice gobblers.Im already looking forward to next season.I think if NC done away with turkey season....I'd move,lol.

    And on the subject of shooting beards off,I tried to find a pic I had of someone I hunted with last year as he crawled around on his hands and knees picking up strands of beard and putting them in his pocket while wiping tears saying over and over,'I shot his beard off,I shot his beard off',lmbo.

    Oh You have no idea lol
    Limbhanger...I told her last year on our mis-hap that I would somehow make it up to her and then seeing how she was when Don took the shot a few hours earlier, There was NOOO Way!! I could have shot even though It was killing me when they stritted in!!! lol Like I said, I was thinking Double but She shot the Bird she had a shot at but we all 3 agreed that we think the other Gobbler that was with him was also a Double Beard or just very thick? Brothers maybe? Anyway, He's still out there lol But yeah...any other Friend...I'm not sure I could have held off lmbo!!!!!!!

    WOW
    Hate to let the air out of your balloon ole buddy,but there was no way you could have shot that bird.You may have fired,but we both know you would have missed,lol. Just like you done on the one I told you to go ahead and shoot the next day. 15-20 yard shot and when you shot the turkey stood there looking at you like ,'seriously buddy,I can't believe you missed'.ha ha Thats why that turkey didn't get in a hurry going up the hill,he knew if you shot again, at the most all he was gonna lose 'A Single Feather'. I'm kidding ya.

    Hmmm
    LOL That's some handy information to have right there LOLOLOL. Next Time.....Well never mind...I have often thought about how upset you would have been IF I would have shot him but maybe history will repeat itself and I'll get to find out lol...Yeah I missed a few easy shots this year but That's hunting I guess? Like I said...next year, I'm gonna go without the Scope since I have a Auto and that way, I can just shoot till they drop..You know...Like Ducks!!!

    Dang
    Now I know you aren't that bad of a sportsman that you would only think of yourself and not care about a friend getting one. I know you aren't, or else I wouldn't hunt with you,lol.If you had shot you Might have hit it,but if you did would that have been a good hunt knowing you done a friend like that? Don knew I didn't have a shot,and he's right it would have got away if he hadn't shot the one he did. I'm thankful to be able to hunt with friends that I know are good sportsmen. I had a blast hunting with you guys and am looking forward to next year.Good Times!!!!

    I know you are joking because you have helped too many people this year ,including calling one in for me and Don.
