Decided to turkey hunt this year after never hunting in my entire life at age 42. Always fished never hunted. Been frustrating to say the least. Spent about 40 hours on the prowl and have come close but no turkey. Today went to private land and there were turkeys in the field as soon as we got there. My buddy, long time hunter, told me he would go to the left and flush them my way. 5 minutes later one of them went sprinting past me, 2 flew away but one poor soul decided to jog and I hit him at 25 yards. Quick but exciting. 20.8 lbs, 1 1/8 spurs and 9.5 in beard. Thrilled and ready for #2.
