We won the fight but lost his life :)
« on: April 29, 2013, 09:32:34 PM »
On Saturday morning I was in my tent at 06:15 and had Turkeys Gobbling all around me.  I started calling at 06:45 and had two big Tom's heading my way Gobbling their heads off.  They did not come into my decoys they went after each other about 50 yards in front of my tent and beat the heck out of each other for about five minutes.  Well the loser of the fight walked directly away from me and the winner turned and walked right towards one of my hens strut-en his stuff all the way.  I shot him at 25 yards and he went straight down.  Great morning.  He was 22-25 lbs with a 11 3/4 in beard and 1 1/4 spurs.
