Spent a few days at my place down south and chased some turkeys around. On day 3 heard a few gobble and was hopeful. About 730 saw one appear out of my turnip patch into the mowed field. I had set a spread of Dave Smith Decoys out and had tried his new mating motion pair that is a Jake mounting a hen. They are so realistic. When the gobbler popped out and saw the decoy is like you could see his blood pressure boil over. He blew up strutted back and forth at about 150 yards. When he didnít get the attention of the decoy he came in on a trot half blown up. At about 15 yards he went full presentation. And circled in front of the decoy and approached from the side. He was ready to attack the decoy and knock the stuffing out of the Jake. As he turned to attack I ended the game. 39 yards and he didnít know what hit him. 9.5 inch beard 1 inch spurs.  If anyone is in the fence about purchasing these decoys they are worth every Penny.

Each one of us here today will at one time in our lives look upon a loved one who is in need and ask the same question: We are willing to help, Lord, but what, if anything, is needed? For it is true we can seldom help those closest to us. Either we don't know what part of ourselves to give or, more often than not, the part we have to give is not wanted. And so it is those we live with and should know who elude us. But we can still love them - we can love completely without complete understanding.

     Nice bird and Congrats go to you Al. How much does he weigh ?  
   I never shot one myself but I never hunted them but one time.
   I do like the taste of them rascals though. I sure am glad that
   you scored with a nice TOM . Enjoy him Al I hope he tastes as
   good as he looks.

I put the legs in the slow cooker and put them in low for 12 hours. Matt finally got tender enough to remove from the bone. I made some Turkey corn soup with your wifeís recipe. It was really good. Used some chicken stock cause it was so lean but still pretty amazing. Thanks for the kind words as well as sharing the special recipe

     THANK YOU MY FRIEND .
   I can see how good that bird is, I always liked it when a buddy
   called me and asked if I wanted a Wild Turkey that he harvested .
   I always said yes I'd be glad to have him, we both love that taste,
    ENJOY HIM AL !

Where did you get that bird at?  Here are a couple birds I have gotten in the past....i whiffed last year hard. misjudged my distance and wounded it. I left my range finder in the blind while I was run and gunning. Lesson learned, dont rush the hunt.  So I am going on a 3 year drought.
