Big Tom Turkey
 
1 Attachment(s)
Went Turkey hunting yesterday and had the best day ever. I called in a Big Tom and had him in the bag by 9:30 am. It was spectacular, heard the gobbler answer the call at about 300yds away. I was in a bad spot to get a view of him due to a big oak so I low crawled to get a better view and still no sight. I crawled back to my tree and there he was about 75yds out. Called him up to 25yds and it was all over. 21lbs and 9.5in beard.

Nice bird. One heck of a shot at 25 yards, what shot were you shooting?

Got him with my new Remington 887. I was using Remington Turkey loads 3" #6 shot with a Kicks Gobblin Thunder choke.

Congratulations! That's a dandy Tom and I bet he'll eat well. I'm leaving on the 20th. This will be my 18 year of hunting thunder chickens and I hope to see one as nice as the one you bagged.

Just had one breast for Easter dinner. Marinated, wrapped in bacon and grilled. He was very good! Good luck on your trip. I'm going back out and have a hunt that I won scheduled on a private lake still to go. More to come I hope.

Hey TX patriot. Took the breasts and had one for Easter dinner. Other in the freezer. Curious why you ask.
