First Turkey

Was fortunate to be able to call in this Ascension Parish bird for this young man. This was his first turkey! It was a great hunt with the bird coming over 400 yards during the 20-30 minute setup and probably gobbled 60 times. The gobbler closed the distance to inside of 25 yards, but was not visible behind some brush. He stayed out of sight and gobbled over 20 times. The hunter was so excited that by his own words ' My arm and legs were shaking so much I didn't think I would be able to shoot' The gobbler eventually stepped out in full strut at 8 steps, a 3.5' #6 ended the hunt in short order. I always enjoy calling in birds for other hunters, but to see a 70 year old this excited really made my day. This is what it's all about, never lose that feeling....

That is a special hunt and a special bird. What a hammer! I know that gentleman will not forget that hunt. Great Job.
