Opening Day gobbler

Post by Steve Hamilton »

AT 7:40am Monday I called in and shot a 26# gobbler with an 11" beard. I was watching 2 strutters in 200 yards away in 1 direction but they were not responding to my calls. Then I gave some aggressive cuts and a gobbler sounded from behind me. He came in quickly to my calls. The only problem was after I shot he flopped into a 10' deep and wide county drain with rapidly flowing water. I had to crawl on my chest, face first down the 6' steep sides to grab him. I almost went in myself. Fishing the Detroit river tomorrow with Jowl then heading to PA on Sat to hunt turkeys there with my brother next week.
