2006 Tom

As Sambo3006 said not exactly long range stuff but it's in season.

Here's the turkey I shot last Sat. morning at 10:30 he gobbled once about 400 yards away or more. I called aggressively with long pauses between calls. He came in silently and I shot him in the head and neck at 35 yards. (I checked after the shot with a laser rangefinder!).


Shot with Browning Gold Hunter 12 gauge 3 1/2" magnum #4 Heavy Shot standard full choke. DOA did nothing but flop at the shot!

He weighed 18 pounds on a certified set of scales. (Town & Country feed store) Had a 9&3/4" beard & 1" spurs.

Re: 2006 Tom

I spent the morning out in western Maryland and didn't get a single response. Same place that on Tuesday I had five gobblers talking to me at once. Decided to call it quits about 11:30 and was driving down the road and there he was in the middle of the road. I gunned the motor but he jumped the ditch up onto the bank and gave me a nasty look as I went by. Time was 11:54 and just no use in trying to stop and call him.

Glad you had better luck than me.
