Re: My First Turkey

Congrats on your 1st bird Thumbs up and a big thanks is owed to your friend for guiding you. Good land to turkey hunt is getting harder and harder to find. Congrats to both of you!

Congradulations on a nice bird. Thumbs up
I enjoy the spring hunt and was hooked the first time. And everything is just starting to grow and it helps keep my hunting skills tuned. My season starts tommorrow.

Is that a eastern tom? Very nice long beard looks close to 10"

It is indeed an Eastern Tom. The beard was 9.5 inches. The same friend that guided me through the hunt is also mounting the tail and beard. It may not be a great bird (not that I'd know) but its my first and it will be hung in a special place.

I am hooked.

Going again this saturday to see if I can get another. A couple of grad students from NC State University are going to film the hunt. They are majoring in forestry and wildlife or something along those lines. Not sure what the film will be used for but I want a copy
