Went down to Georgia for the opener. Opening day only heard one bird on the roost that was well over the property line and shut up after fly down. The birds were still big flocks and not very vocal. After scouting a little I sat in pretty hardwood hammock drain in the evening to try and roost one. Right before dark I heard one fly up and a couple minutes later sound off. The next morning we went back and as daylight started to break he started gobbling. Eased in from the east and set up against a big white oak. He gobbled pretty good on the limb. After fly down he gobbled a few times but not much. I hit him with a few series of yelps on the diapham and then went to soft calling with clucks and purrs. He gobbled again but sounded a little further out in the pines than he had been. Hit him again with yelps and a few aggressive cuts. After a few minutes he sounded like he had eased back our direction a little. My BIL was sitting behind me working a slate as I worked the diapham to sound like more than one hen. After about ten minutes we heard a few clucks and yelps from the edge of the pines on the other side of the small creek drain in front of us at about 60 yards. Then a thundering gobble, he had committed and now out of the pines and in the hardwoods. Finally I saw the big blue head bobbing over some brush as he started to work to my left. He broke into strut for a second then eased forward into a small opening. I gave him a cluck and as he stretched his head up I let Ol' Black Betty and the LB 5's eat. He's a 3 year old with a 9.5" beard, 1 1/8 and 1 1/16 spurs, and weighted 21.8 lbs. First time ever turkey hunting in Georgia, hopefully it won't be my last.

I don't like posting crappy pictures, but it was the best I could do under the circumstances and we need some more pictures for the kill thread.



Not much story to it. I sat in a blind overlooking some decoys and called it in using a box call during the downpour on Saturday. It came in gobbling the whole way and received a load of 6's at 20 yards. It felt nice to be out.

Shot this one at 6:55 this morning. Started out on a different bird that gobbled like crazy but would not come in. He gobbled at everything but acted like he really didn't have much interest and would just walk away. I moved on him three times but it did no good. After the third move I heard a different bird gobble back from where I had called from before. I back tracked a little got set up and called this bird and his buddy in. He's the lightest weight wise of all the birds I've killed this year, but definitely one of my best.

19lbs. 14oz., 11 7/8" beard, and sharp 1 3/8" and 1 7/16" spurs.
