Got the first longbeard of the season yesterday. I think he is a good three yr old. I could tell he had hens with him by the way he was acting so calling him away was gonna be a no-go. I worked around an got on the same ridge top with them an just lightly called to the hens with my old lynch box. It has served me well for over 35 yrs now an sweet talked the girls on in pulling this old boy with them in full strut. I let him get to 25 yrds an introduced him to Achilles my 12 ga flintlock. There were other longbeards with them but the woods was too thick to tell an accurate # He went down with the shot an the others are a tad more educated now. He has a 9 an half inch good thick beard with 1 inch sharp spurs and about 19 lbs. Good luck to all the turkey chasers this spring

Nice ! We are running behind here, as we still have 2 feet of snow in the woods. Maple sap boiling is taking up my time at present.

Thanks Guys. The load used was 100 gr of Fg followed by a 1/8th inch overpowder felt wad then a 1/8th inch hard cardboard wad and 120 grns of # 2 shot. And of course a thin overshot card on top of the shot. I like big shot for turkey and I shoot #2s and #4s depending on where im hunting

That is some kind of great achievement shooting that turkey. It is not difficult to hunt such animal?
