Best turkey: 11 1/2'' paint brush 1 3/8'' spurs

Best hunt:
My little brother was with me the previous spring when I killed my first long beard at the end of the season (2001) I promised him that I would put him on the first bird that I could the following season. Opening day we had had no luck at daybreak so we drove to a different spot. We walked up to the top of the ridge and blew a crow call. A tom gobbled about 300-400 yards away on someone else's property. We sat up and called to him, but he didn't answer back. Still being wet behing the ears when it came to turkey hunting we got up and walked directly away from where the bird had gobbled to try to cut and run and fire up another bird. We walked a total of 500 or so yards and never could fire up anything so we decided to head back to the truck, but we thought we would go back to where we had first called and try once more to fire up the One bird that did gobble. When we got back to the spot I cut really hard on the slate call and he hammered less that 100 yds out. We just had time to get my little brother set up when I saw the toms fan as he was strutting in. He strutted,spit and drummed, and frankly danced his way to within 15yds when my little brother layed the hammer down on him. 9in beard 1'' spurs. Not bad for a 10 yr old boys first turkey. And one happy big brother to boot!
