    This boy came in silent from behind me at 6:50 this morning. He was in full strut the whole time and went past the blind at 10 feet to check out the Jake decoy. I shot him at 10 yards and he ran past the blind and expired 15 feet away. My first archery turkey, and my first mature bird as well. (I shot a Jake last spring with the shotgun.) Awesome experience!

    Thanks! I dropped it off at the taxidermist, I think I’ll spend the coin to get a full body mount. After this it’ll take a really special one to get mounted. This particular spot requires a hike of more than a mile but there’s a ton of birds back there.

    Thanks! I’m still on a bit of a high lol. One thing that definitely helped was to find a nice flock of birds on a public area that was archery only. That kept most people away and we just set up close to the roost and called sparingly to get the gobblers’ attention.

    Thanks, Dan. I actually watched your episode on my phone (muted of course with captions) in the blind about half an hour before my bird showed up. I really need to get a video camera. We would’ve got killer footage on both my brothers hunt and mine. What model of camera are you using if I may ask?

    Good job, gentlemen! Congrats to those who scored, and to those that didn’t, next year will be your turn. I honestly just joined the contest on a whim, didn’t think my odds of success were very high. But I don’t know if I’ll take the shotgun out after turkeys again. Think I’m hooked now

    Received my package today! Had no idea I would be winning a new fully loaded Triax for winning the turkey contest? BHOD really stepping it up with their prizes.

    Alright I’m done dreaming. I love the mesh hats.

    Thanks again for carrying me and good luck deer hunting! BHOD.
