I was lucky enough to be drawn for this years Minnesota Spring Turkey Hunt. And even luckier is the property I get to Hunt on. Bobberdowns Family has a beautiful 40 acre woodlot that sits on Chub Lake with adjacent farm land boarding the other side of the Woods. It's a Turkey Palace to say the least with woods, water, farmland and little to no pressure being its private land.
After 4 days of being schooled by this Birds and on my last day I got lucky and bagged this nice Gobbler!
21.5 pounds... 8 1/2" Beard and 3/4" spurs~!
My Remmington 870 SuperMag Turkey Model came through big-time with a 20 yard head shot just after sunrise.
Even eminent chartered accountants are known, in their capacity as fishermen, blissfully to ignore differences between seven and ten inches, half a pound and two pounds, three fish and a dozen fish. ~ William Sherwood Fox, Silken Lines and Silver Hooks, 1954
