Hunted this morning and I saw a good bird, but he was far away, and wouldn't come in. They never gobbled this morning. I went get everything ready for tomorrow morning close to where he was. Decided to go sit on powerline behind camp. Did one good call sequence, and just sat back. Bird came in silent. I didn't even know he was there. I had to cough, and when I did, I saw something move. He tried to run, but I got on him quick, and rolled him. Hevi Shot is bad a**. Bird weighed 19 1/2 pounds, had 11' beard, and 1 1/4' spurs.

Awesome!!My wife and I submitted for either Pearl River WMA or Sherburne WMA lottery hunts and not sure if we have been selected(my gut instinct is we did not get picked for either)and not a bid deal as Sherburne has a non-lottery season(3 days long!!).Very nice bird with great beard!!!My only turkey to date came from Sherburne and was a banded jake with a 3 inch beard!!
