Got turkey feathers?

May first found me in Cherry Creek, NY gathering some fly tying material.  Ben, Jim and I hunted for four days in the rain to take these fine gobblers.  I have plenty of tail feathers and secondary turkey rounds now, as I need to tie some more Korn's WH Turkey Tail Nymphs......
After taking the first bird I switched to my Grandfather's old Remington Sportsman in 16 gauge you don't see many of those these days.  I can remember my Grandfather using it to knock down a deer with a single shot one day as I stood by his side in Hemlock, NY many, many years ago when I was just 12 years old.  He shot a lot of deer and small game with this gun and it did a fine job for me too on this, my second gobbler...

My buddy Ben and his Cherry Creek gobbler also taken on May 4th.
