Got this guy at 6:45 pm this evening.  After sitting on field edges in the mornings and afternoons, I set up in the trees where they roost.  I got set up and yelped a few times and he answered with a few clucks.  He walked behind a large hickory and gave me the perfect op to shoulder my gun.  The rest is history.  I hadnt hunted turkey in over 15 years but took it back up three years ago.  After not seeing any birds on our property up north the last two years, I decided to hunt my wife's family's farm in Calumet Co this year.  Good call.

23#, 9.5" beard, 1" spurs.
