Title: On the board!!!
Post by: BigStrutter on April 24, 2012, 01:21:13 PM
After battling a stomach virus all day Monday I was finally able to get my 2012 turkey season started off on Tuesday 4/17/12. I worked a bird off the roost that morning and had him within 40 yards but it is so green in eastern NC I couldn't get a clear shot. A hen came in and took him away from me. I got back in the woods about 3pm and struck this bird at about 3:15pm. Called him in the first time in a small field but he didn't like my dekes. I made a big circle and got in the woods with him and called him back in at 4:20pm. 18-19 lbs. 3/4" spurs and a 10.5" beard.

Heard another bird start gobbling on my walk out and hunted him the rest of my week off and had him close but could never close the deal. Had a great vacation andnow have to fill my last tag with one of these mountain birds.
