Turkey Hunting 2015 - tagged out in week #1

Had a great time hunting with friends this week. The three of us all took birds, 4 total...... here are my two.

Bird #1 - Bearded hen, some people might balk at taking a hen in the spring..... But, I consider a bearded hen a rare trophy. We hardly ever shoot hens on the property even in the fall. This is the second one I've taken in 40 years of turkey hunting. 


Bird #2 - Gobbler
