My First Turkey

  1. WoooHooo! After being Skunked for 5 years i finnaly got 1.......
    Opening day was a bust for me, so i was going out day 2, never give up.
    This was the only day my wife and I had off together, and she really did not want me going. So i asked her to come with... I told her i would only be out 1/2 the day. She said sure, if that is the only way i will get a chance to spend some time w/ you. So we headed out at 6am. I brought the blind and 2 chairs...... She had to carrie her load.....LOL.
    Yesterday I the only thing i could get to answer my calls were geese. Today i had 4 gobblers talking w/ me, but none would come in to them. At aprox 9am i had one calling real close by, maybe 75 yards. We were talking together for about 20 mins, then he dissapeared. Man was i getting frusterated! about 10 mins later i looked out the left window of my blind and saw a Gobbler and a hen. They were playing.... it was cool.
    I called to try and get them to come close but they ignored all my calls.
    I tell ya if that does not make you madd nothing will. So i had a bright idea to low crawl in the mudd close enough to get a shot. I open the blind and hit the ground, as i crawled my wife called them. That damn bird looked right at me, so i had her stop calling. I crawled into about 50 yards and took the shot. I was a bit low but i got him anyway. :bouncy:
