Left Albany LA at 3:00 am. and drove to South Texas for 9 hours, hunted that afternoon shot my first two turkeys ever and drove back home the next morning before the weather got bad. One on the right weighed 24 lbs. 1 3/4' spurs with a 10 3/4' beard. The one one the left weighed 19 lbs. 9 1/2' beard with 1 1/4' spurs. I only get to turkey hunt one weekend a year due to work, I finally was able to get it done this year.

Congrats on the turkeys. I love hunting them rios in Texas. I make the trip every year-like a ritual. Always a great experience. I found some spots towards San Antonio and met some great people. Looking forward to next year -may even sneak over for a fall hunt.
