Two birds down

Took last week off to chase some mountain gobblers here in Virginia. Best season I have seen in years in the national forest.

First day of vacation was rain and fog. Found two gobbling birds and got above the closest one. He and I look like a wet rat but it was a fun hunt

19 pounds 5 ounces
10 1/8" beard
7/8" & 1" spurs

The next one was also national forest and 7 days later. Called in three jakes and two longbeards. While trying to get an open shot on one of the big boys a coyote came rushing in and messed everything up. I took a shot on the closest bird and killed a nice 15 pound 6 ounce jake.

I then grabbed my Springfield XD .40S&W and scared the day lights out of the coyote

Nice job. I see plenty of turkey in my AO. And when spring season opens, they mysteriously migrate to Antarctica. Lol

Some day, I'll actually go turkey hunting. It's too close to the open of fishing season for me. I'm a fisherman at heart.
