Tennessee, so eastern. Definitely looks like a wild eastern in form and the way he carries himself.

Most unique gobbler spinoff

I stole these pics from Facebook back in March, supposedly a wild Tennessee bird. Just gorgeous. I keep thinking about him every time I see decoykrvr’s post. I hope he never gets shot!

Re: Most Unique Gobbler Killed?

Oddest I’ve got is a Smooth legged, one with a sideways spur, one with a crop filled with with green stink bugs and acorns on March 15th, one with a softball-sized tumor, and one with a broken leg.

Would give a nut for a Smokey gray. Bout to have kid #3 so I’m about done with em anyhow.

Re: Cheap Donkey Question?

Done it with 3 ranges at a time using a lead sled, a laser bore sight and some large 4x6 paper. Works pretty good, patterns look organic from sheet to sheet. Gives you better data then shooting three different times.

Re: Most Unique Gobbler Killed?

I hunted a mountain hollow which had a large shallow, high volume, spring at the base of a ridge. I killed a large soaking wet gobbler near the spring one morning when we had experienced no rain, and when I cleaned him, he had 18 spring lizards and 2 crawdads in his crop. Although I've never seen o...

Re: Fruit/nut trees for turkey?

Whatever these are. I find them in nearly every gizzard I open up from Nebraska to Alabama. It may be because they’re tough to grind down but turkeys seems to like them.

Re: Late Season A-hole [He’s dead. I killed him]

Well he’s dead. Two things. One, I forgot to stake the heart. It’s sitting in a baggie with his liver but I don’t know that I can do it. Two, it feels too soon to tell the story. I can’t believe I miss that A-hole already even after all the abuse he put me through.

Re: Late Season A-hole

Tom Kelly spoke of this in The 10th Legion. Funny story... Unless you can relate, then it makes you want to hide and confess your unworthiness to even dare cast a shadow on the same ridge he sleeps on. Those are the kind of birds that get killed "accidentally" by some guy that does everything wrong...

Re: Late Season A-hole

This is a dangerous situation since the gobbler has definitely gotten into your head. As such, the gobbler has and is winning and the only resolution is to "put him down". The hardest lesion and most difficult thing to do in turkey hunting is knowing when you need to leave a gobbler cause sometimes...

I have run into him in Alabama and Georgia occasionally. I bet he's a skinny bird because of all the traveling he does. If I ever do kill him, I'm driving a stake through his heart and burying him on the spot
Alabama brings out the worst in him.

Sounds like you need to kill him. Sent from my SCH-I545 using Tapatalk Yes! I will try. Last year when I finally found him I was so pleased at his prowess that I gave him the last three days of the season out of respect. When I almost broke and went after him on the final day, my Dad convinced me t...

Re: Late Season A-hole

He abhors pitching down to the side of a ridge, preferring to sail across hollers instead.

The two times I’ve caught up with him and tried the whole “peak a fan” trick did not go over well with this indidual.

Late Season A-hole [He’s dead. I killed him]

Every year I run across the same A-hole turkey. It’s always late season. He’s always .9 miles away when I hear him. He always gobbles regularly until I manage to make it to him. He will stop gobbling when I call. He will resume gobbling after I shut up 20 minutes. The same will happen regardless of ...

Re: Cancelled hunt deposits

You paid for a service he can’t deliver. If you didn’t cancel the hunt then the risk of loss falls on him and he should refund the money unless your contract says clearly to the contrary.
