Wife’s first turkey..

She smacked it in the mouth with a HotRod 20ga load.

Good thing it was a long beard as she froze up and I had to coach her to get the encore positioned

BEARD 1: 11”

RIGHT SPUR: 1”

LEFT SPUR: 1”

WEIGHT: 21.9 pounds

#1 REASON FOR THIS SUCCESSFUL HUNT:
We pulled up around the corner hunting public land; and we saw this gobbler and a hen cross the road to another piece of public. We backed up and did a LONG hike using terrain to get us close - we actually misjudged a loafing Tom thinking he was traveling - and thought we missed him. Started walking back toward the truck and heard hen talk so we ducked down and snuck into a blowdown. That blowdown and hearing that hen got us a successful gobbler down!! It was filmed (Greg Clements) and the hunt will be on The Hunting Public next spring with a pile of great Iowa hunts!!!
