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.

Bird #2


Called him in at 11:49 AM 32 yrds... had a flock of 5 jakes strutting and gobbling around but he only gobbled once the whole way in...

10" Beard

1" Spurs







red line= my entrance to area

red box on left= first setup

blue box farthest north= first saw gobbler

blue circle= farthest I called him in... (couldnt get a shot, brush in the way)

blue line= he circled around through the woods...

red box on right= setup #2

yellow box= decoy

blue box near decoy= where he died





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...
