10 inch + 5 inch Double beard Turkey
Called this bird in while the other guys were loading the truck ..Last ditch effort on my part ...My first double bearded turkey ...spurs were only 3/4 but, he weight about 25 lbs ...Shot him with my Knight tk2000 muzzle loader shotgun ...opening day ,,today in Oklahoma
It's all about what tracks a man leaves as well as his prey..

The truck was about 50 yards behind me ...My buds were loading up and checking a trail cam not far from there ...But, once they heard the gobbles ...they got down and were quiet ...However, the Tom should of see the truck ...we had out a blind and decoys out in the spot he came in too..I was gathering stuff up and called a little with a mouth call ..when he sounded off, a ways out .So,.I got my binocs out and could see his head 400 yards out right in front of me..I thought he may see me if I tried to get back to the blind ..So, I used a small hill that was there in help me hide ...He came it too 30 yards ..I could see him just above the grass where I was hiding ..Real white head and I saw his fan once and knew it was not a Jake ,,,It is one of my best birds to date for sure ...
