Went up to my buddies farm this weekend. It rained really hard all day Saturday, we saw a lot of birds, got a few to gobble, but couldn't get a shot on any of them.

We went out this morning, saw a lone hen and later a group of 3 hens, no gobblers.

We went in and ate lunch, about 10:30 we got back out. As we were walking to our spot we saw a bird in the middle of the field, so we ducked back into the woods and hit the call a few times. We got a few far off gobbles from the other direction, but the 1st bird didn't make a sound. We just sat silently for about 30 minutes. The first bird snuck up on me, I couldn't see him because I had leaves in my way. He stood right next to my decoy, no more than 15 feet in front of me. Just then the Tom that we heard gobbling earlier popped out of the woods. I went to ease my gun up on the 1st bird, but the movement spooked him and he started running away. The 2nd bird started running, so I swung on him and dropped him with one shot at about 30 yards.

He was 26 pounds, close to 2 inch spurs, and a 9 inch beard. The one that got away was a lot bigger, he was HUGE! I sat through a weekend of cold wet weather and I killed the smaller of the 2 birds but I'm not complaining it was AWESOME!

I'll post pics later in the week :banana:

WOO HOO!!!!! Congrats on your first bird ever!!!!:cheers::cheers::cheers:
It took me a few years to get mine. It was one of the most exciting hunts I ever had and will always be remembered.
So where were you hunting? And how long have you been chasing Turkey birds?
