There ya go. lol, was taken last Sunday on Fort Campbell on the Tennnessee side. 21 1/2 lbs, 10 3/4 beard, 1 1/4 spurs. 5:30pm I setup on a old bean field, called a few time and about 6:00pm 3 toms came out into the field(all quiet). No decoys setup but they came right down my side of the field. Shot him at 8 yards, no 2nd shot as they other two flew off. Sorry for the pic qual, I was home alone and it was getting dark.
Good luck to everyone.

Got up to the club this morning and it was a foggy son of a gun. Took me about 50 minutes to make to 30 minute drive because I couldnt see anything. At 6:14 I heard a bird about as far as you can hear one off of the property, it was dead still and I know about where he was at because of the donkey carrying on near him and he was close to a mile the way the crow flies. He gobbled 3 times on the limb and that was all I heard at daylight. I walked and owled, cut, tried it all and didn't hear a peep. I finally decided to head back toward the truck and walk through some pines and just set up on a big hardwood ridge and just call every now and then and see if they would ever sound off. It is still foggy as all get out and about 7:30 when I get to the edge of the pines and let out about a 6 note yelp and get a response at about 250 yards off the edge of the ridge. I set down right there and knee my gun. I hit him again and he sounds farther away. I give him a few minutes and hit im again and he cuts me off and closer. About 5 minutes goes by and he gobbles on his own and closer so I cut him off. He hits me again and in about 1 minute I can hear him drumming and getting close just over the crest of the ridge. I saw a white head go by a hole and thought he had already passed me on the lip of the ridge, but I am pretty sure it was the jake I have been getting all of the pics of with him all spring that I just about shot. I give him another soft yelp expecting a gobble from the right and he hammers to the left where he had been but this time he comes at me and into the same hole the jake had just passed. I can see a full fan and see him gobble so as soon as he cranes that neck again I let the Nitro train loose on him. He fell dead and didn't do anything but the turtle on it's back air kicks. He is a big bird and I could tell from the trail cam pics that he had a good rope and good spurs. He weighed in at 22# on the nose, had a 10.5" beard, and 1 1/4" spurs. I don't think I have another gobbler on the place, but I will be back tomorrow to check and see.

right where he fell




Thick as I have ever seem coming out of his breast.

The call I made this week that ended his life. 2 reed Ghost

Great year so far. We've all been blessed with a bird but the most rewarding has been my hunting buddy Jeremy's daughter Carley's killing her first bird, double-beard 28 lb. monster. And get this, she killed it with a 835, shooting a 3 1/2" shell! Then wanted to shoot another when it attacked her dead bird! Great memories.

We've all been blessed with good birds, but the most rewarding was seeing my hunting buddy Jeremy's daughter Carley, kill her first bird, a double bearded 28lb. monster! And get this guy's she's 55 lbs soak and wet and killed it with a 835 with a 3 1/2" shell. Then wanted to shoot another when it came in and attacked her bird while it was down! Great memories.

My new lease is exactly an hour and 45 minutes from my house, it is a haul so out I left at 4:15ish this morning. I pull up to the gate where I had planned on hunting and threw my crap on and headed for a ridge top about a half mile away. To make a long story short I walked and called all morning and about 10:30 decided to swing back by the truck, refill on water, and head to the other end of the property to look for some fresher sign to sit on. I kill a couple bottles of water and set out to walk towards a big green field that I knew was on the place and surrounded by big pines that ought to offer shade for a hot bird. Well I walk for a good while just slipping along and calling every now and then when I hear the spit but not the drum of a turkey and then catch movement just around one of the curves in the road and I mean CLOSE. I guess he heard me walking and calling and was coming to me but he never gobbled to give up his location. I stepped behind a tree, raised my gun, flipped the safety off and let him keep coming to me. He stepped out in full strut from behind a big pine and I sent a swarm of Nitros to make his day. I almost blew his head off. \:\) I had nothing else to do so I just sat down next to him, said a few prayers, and soaked it all up for about 30 minutes before I ever moved him or did anything. On the way home I come up on an old guy that had just had a motorcycle wreck. He was skinned up but ok, the motorcycle was crushing his ancle under the running board so I got it off of him and back out in the road. He was ok and his bike was ok minus a little road rash.

Rolled up at the club this morning at about 5:45 and received a text from the only other turkey hunter in the club that he killed one yesterday afternoon and was taking the day off. That means we killed 3 off of it yesterday. I went ahead slipped in to where I was planning on going and set up about 30 yards off the edge of a food plot close to where I killed my bird yesterday. The birds are using the area big time from the sign I have been seeing in the pines and I hoped for the best. I sat there calling off and on until about 7 and decided to get up and do some slipping around and try to drum something up. Well I walked maybe 300 yards and come up on some fresh sign in the pines that had either been done late yesterday evening or early this morning. I decided to back off the road and set up and just call for a few minutes and see what happened. I set down facing the logging road and pulled out my Rocky Top Glass over Slate and started cutting on it and yelping on a mouth call. I figured what the heck I haven't heard anythign all morning, maybe I will drum something up. I set the call down and maybe 4 or 5 minutes go by and a crow flies directly over me just raising hell and makes a gobbler sound off directly behind me at maybe 100 yards. I spin on the tree and flip the safety off, maybe 5 seconds go by and here he comes in half strut coming through the pines. He stepped out into the open and I introduced him to Mr. Nitro and Mrs. Rhino.

I will let my buddy Matt post his story up himself on his bird, but after he got his bird we walked around and made a loop through the club and didn't get any responses. I was content at just heading back home and calling it a weekend after 4 days of hunting and getting him his bird, but he wanted to run by some family land of his that turned out to be a good move. I owe him one now. \:\) The place is only 40-50 acres maybe, but it is a horse farm with some good property around it. We pull up and I get my stuff on and we head out to the "woods". Which is nothing but pretty clear pines really on the backside of it and set up. I made one set of calls and waited maybe 5 minutes and I thought I heard drumming. I am thinking no way this is drumming I am hearing. It gets louder and loader until I KNOW it is drumming, but couldn't see it. Turns out it is coming in a line to me right behind a big pine that is close to me and I can't see around it. By this time Matt is hearing it, but he is facing straight away to watch my back/the open horse pasture. \:\) I let him come on into about 40 yards and give him a dirt nap. I bet we were not there 15 minutes total. We high fived, took pics of both birds, and made us up some sandwiches. What a great day in the woods, one of the best I have ever had if not the best. I have seen 4 birds die in 4 days, I hope the rest of the season and states go the same way.

2012 #2 - This was a hunt to remember. My son and I went on a 2 hour stalk on this bird which included crawling down a gravel road, walking in a ditch, and setting up in three locations before closing in. The closest we could get was 50 yards...out of reach for his .410. I was about to be busted, so I knocked the dust off of him. He hung with me the whole time on a tough hunt. I know he picked up a few skills.

Congrats Justin on your two birds! I love the pic with your boy in it. He's a trooper if he stayed with you on that jaunt.
