Me and Hoyt_Rocks (HR) hunted our new lease (has a few birds) on the opener this morning in his Double Bull Matrix blind. Hunting an open field finger ridge. HR brought his Trykon and Montecs and I brought my 835. We started with a hen and some jakes around our 3 blow up hen dekes at an hour after first light at 10 yards. Then the gobbling started and we called a strutter to within 10 yards behind the blind in the woods where we couldn't shoot. Several jakes and hens later the same gobbler strutted at 25 yards and took off before HR could get a shot. From 9am till 10 pm we worked 2 gobblers and several jakes (one strutting and gobbbling) to us from out in the field. At 10am the gobbler from earlier came back out to the edge of the field at 12 yards broadside to see what was going on. HR drew and thumped him breaking his nearside wingbone and taking out the lungs. He flopped over and ALL the turkeys in the field started to run to him (just like on tv). I picked out the boss and blasted him at 30 yards running. Days like today are why we go out there. Met HR on this site and became friends and got him on my lease and in turn he set us up in his Double Bull. HR's bird is 23lb, 26mm spurs, 11" beard. My gobbler is 24lb, 29mm spurs, and 11.5" beard. Both good birds. More pics to come later. Doubled at 10am, not much rain, perfect setup.
