NOTHING... then saw a strutter in the plowed field (map below) called for a while... NOTHING... finally i got tired of waiting and started crawling tward him... calling every little while... crawled to the top of a little knoll... laid flat on my stomach and called for a few min...  saw some movement... swung gun over and up... three jakes come trotting up and stop 6 steps from me... BOOM!!! first turkey of the yr down!!!!

Congrats, I shot a 2 yr. old this morning. 19.75 lbs., 7.75" beard, 3/4" spurs. Called in 2 of them @7Am. I used a new slate pot call that a friend gave me. I just love breaking in a new call!  Hope I can enter the contest next year.

EDIT:

BTW phade pointed out to me that the beard is actually 10.5"

( http://huntingny.com/forums/topic/16348-gobbler-2-down/?p=209529 )

and i went and checked and sure enough...

Does that count? or did i need to right it on the card?

I suppose i still could but it would only be the legs, beard, tail, and card in the picture cause the bird is getting cut up for the soup pot...
