So, I have been hunting turkeys for 4 years now and up until last weekend I had killed one bird. I took a jake Saturday morning and a nice 2 year old gobbler on sunday morning. It has been a great season so far.
Jake was nothing special 15lbs, 1/4 spurs, 5" beard:

Gobbler was a decent bird 19lbs, 1" spurs and a 9.75" beard:

Hahaha, you have got to find one. I was wearing it when I killed both birds opening weekend and when I killed my first bird 2 years ago. It's my lucky turkey slaying hat.

Haha oh I know. I actually started to let him walk because I wasn't sure about taking a jake. Then I came to my senses and gave him a really soft yelp. He turned and started back toward me and I dishragged him.

And thank you all for the congratulations! After last year I was afraid I was snake bit and doomed to never take another turkey.
