New York Turkey Hunt Success

This turkey I shot on the on the fourth day, of my first spring turkey season in New York. I was set up on a good a roosted tom, but little did I know that he had about 10 or 20 hens with him. So as soon as he hit the ground I did a few soft yelps and clucks but he paid no attention to me, he just followed the hens out of of gun range. I stayed where I was and about an hour later I was able to draw a good sized Jake and a couple hens in to my decoys and made the 25 yard shot, he only had a 3 or 4 inch beard and weighed about 16 or 17 pounds. He wasn't huge but for my first bird it was plenty big enough!

That sounds like success to me!

Congrats on that fine bird. 

I hope I can do as well as you did every New York turkey season!
